It doesn't get dirty easily . Even though i dont play basketball , i use this as a stylish all terrain shoe.
Very good quality, colour is awesome. You can do any sports activity with them.
I have been using these pair of shoes for the past year and what I have found out is that it is a bit heavy and also the grip doesn't do good on few surfaces... Otherwise its a good product
I don't have problem with Quality its far better but When I am using in outdoor(Cement floor)court. its too slippery, soul is too flat and doesn't have enough grip. I have to more cautious and play. As of now I have stopped wearing these.
The shoes lasted for longer than most expensive Nike and Adidas shoes. So it is definitely worth the price... Although for really tough advanced players the front sole is not so rigid. Which means the shoe will propel you forward (more like how a running shoe is work) than rigidly stopping and propelling vertically... Overall these shoes are best for outdoor heavy use and they lasted an unbelievable 7 months! Which is quite impressive. The shoes fits fine, even for people who have wide feet. These are wide shoes which can handle your hard sprinting and swift change of direction smoothly. However these shoes are not like Nike's Kyrie's, Kobe's and Paul George's signature shoes which will help you in shifting speeds and sprinting. But they can handle big advanced players in the right way except for the slight jump issue. In conclusion, it is definitely worth buying because of it's generous price point.
Always a head turner whenever I am walking in our office! They always says what a beautiful new shoes that I’m wearing!
I'm.very satisfied :) thanks tarmak were hoping to see new models
There is no cushioning in this shoe. I bought this shoe 2 months ago and I am getting severe pain in my calf muscles and facing difficulty to walk as well. Earlier I had Nike Basketball shoe which lasted for almost 4 years and I have never come across such kind of problem. I will never recommend this shoe to anyone.
HI Ramneek ,
Thank you so much for writing in with your feedback. We sincerely apologise for your experience with the Shield 500 shoe. This model is excellent for intermediate players, especially for those who play the forward / center positions. I understand from your feedback that your needs are for a dynamic style of play with a higher level of demand on the sole cushioning. Our new SC500 shoes should fit your needs well - it combines the mid foot support and ankle protection of the Shield 500 while providing enhanced cushioning and lightness, I would love for you to try the shoe to feel the difference.

These are the best basketball shoes that I have used.
Designed for hard surface as the sole is long lasting and doesn't wear off easily. Slightly hard inner - recommend to add memory foam insole or wear cushion socks to avoid hard jerks on landing. This is the second pair I bought which is also well within the budget.
Slight heavy but very effective in basketball
Overall shoes is really awesome... But lacks in cushioning.....body gets a jerk on landing after jump.
Outer sole of
- 40% Ethylene vinyl acetate
- 60% Rubber - Synthetic
- 2% Thermoplastic polyurethane

Lateral reinforcement that holds the foot firmly in place when changing direction.
A rigid piece positioned under the arch of the foot that reinforces the stability of the shoe.
Extension of the shoe's outsole on the front of the foot. This technology provides better stability during quick changes of direction.
