Adidas Basketball Shoes and the NBA Players That Wear Them

Have you ever noticed what your favorite NBA star wears on their feet?

Yes, it's true. Professional NBA Players (and any professional sports personality) get paid big bucks for what they wear on their feet. Endorsements are cool and all, but do they work? Is it so believable when your see Dwight Howard slammin' the hoop with his bare hands?

Yes, Absolutely! Whatever is being showcased to the world via the big screen, arena or court, whether it be sneakers, headbands, shorts, has to have you a little curious, and maybe even envious. If Only you could grab a pair of those basketball shoes, and try a pair on.

But how can you not believe them in those commercials, when they play so hard and make it look so easy? Is this just a skilled camera operator, shoe technology, or just some raw talent?

Talent's in there, definitely. What seems like a lifetime of practice for a grueling number of hours a day, is what gives them their superhero-like ability to do what seems impossible to everyone else. Which is, run faster, jump higher, sprint farther, play longer, win bigger, and take championships away from their opponents (other professional basketball players).

I have to say, aside from talent, desire, training, physical ability and support, they've had a little help along the way, and I mean, in the way of sneakers. Not just sneakers. Some serious kicks! Their basketball shoes have to be made with some serious technology, right? Well, most of us aren't sneaker manufacturers, or we'd know the answer to that one.

But, if you were to try on a pair of expensive basketball shoes, compared to what you have now, or even what they used to wear 20 years ago even, you would stand taller, jump higher, run faster, win more games, against your opponent, who may, by the way, have the best high tech sneakers out there, too.

So, take it from the best. Ever check out what shoes Dwight Howard is wearing? What makes him play so good? What about Tim Duncan or Rodney Stuckey?
