Under Armour Men’s Jet Mid Basketball Shoe Review

Under Armour is a relatively new company, but they happen to be crushing the market with their fitness gear, clothing, and the best basketball shoes for ankle support. Their latest pair is designed for men and provides moderate ankle support, ultimate traction, and a comfortable fit that will allow you to keep your head in the game and off of your feet. Our Verdict: These shoes offer a true fit for people with an average width, however, if you have wider feet you should purchase them half a size larger, in order to give your feet enough space to move. The herringbone multidirectional tread offers better than average traction on indoor and outdoor courts. The style of the shoes themselves offers a moderate amount of ankle support, with adequate flex,… Read More »Under Armour Men’s Jet Mid Basketball Shoe Review

Adidas Originals Men’s Pro Bounce Basketball Shoe Review

Adidas came out with what some players are claiming are the best basketball shoes for ankle support; the Pro Bounce. While it’s their newest shoe, it bears a slight resemblance to their older shoe the Mad Bounce, which remains one of their biggest sellers. The Pro Bounce offers better than average grip on the court, and impressive ankle support that doesn’t compromise your ability to move and get it when you’re on the court. Our Verdict: The Pro Bounce high-top shoes by Adidas are a total gamechanger. They offer both top of the line ankle support and a flexible, design that’s actually comfortable. If you’re tired of the stiff high-tops of the past and you’re looking for a pair that will actually allow you to move the way you need… Read More »Adidas Originals Men’s Pro Bounce Basketball Shoe Review

Nike Lebron Soldier XI Mens Basketball Shoes Review

Spalding NBA Portable Basketball System 54 glass backboard review

Spalding NBA Portable Basketball System With 54″ Glass Backboard Review

Last but not least on our list comes another model from Spalding. This time with a 54 inch backboard which is 6 inches smaller than the best model we reviewed but still has some premium (and typical for Spalding) features that are a good enough reason to make it your next basketball hoop. The moto behind this product is “bringing the arena to your driveway” and we found it to be quite true especially since Spalding’s models have a similar looking backboard across all their product lines. This particular model cannot compete with in-ground models but it gets quite close to the money you are paying. Let’s dive into its features and see why and how it made this year’s top 5 list of jumpchamp.com! Our Verdict: We recommend the… Read More »Spalding NBA Portable Basketball System With 54″ Glass Backboard Review

Lifetime 51544 Front Court Portable Basketball System Review

The Lifetime 51544 is the ideal portable basketball hoop for any sorts of hobby basketball players.

If you are looking for a great model to start playing basketball with your kids at, look no further. This one can and will handle any sort of abuse from kids playing on it even them hanging on the hoop, as well as bad weather conditions.

Silverback NXT Portable Basketball Hoop Review

Silverback NXT Portable Basketball Hoop Review

Silverback is a brand that makes basketball hoops in the mid price ranges, exactly where models like the Lifetime 51544 are so these can be considered direct competitors. What is unique about the NXT and makes it a best selling model for a few years in a row is that the brand has a completely different take on portable basketball hoops. The NXT is designed to give ball players more space around them and allow them to make better plays under the ring. In fact, this is done to mimic the built-in basketball hoops where nothing gets in your feet’s way when playing. Is it good enough for us to make that comparison? Well, you are about to find out. Our Verdict: Due to its affordable price, we recommend the… Read More »Silverback NXT Portable Basketball Hoop Review
