Basketball shoe performance reviews

The writers and founders of ROKSBasketball are Ryan Onders and Kyle Scadlock, two friends who grew up in the Greater Cleveland area and were brought together by a mutual love of basketball and basketball shoes. The idea of writing basketball shoe reviews sprouted during their freshman year of high school, when they both joined the basketball team. Kyle plays guard and wing, while Ryan is predominantly a point guard. Any further questions or comments about their reviews can be sent to [ |].

This performance review is brought to you by Ryan and Kyle, a two-man team who take a particular interest in basketball shoes, especially their performance on court. We currently play basketball at the high school and AAU level, which will give our reviews a unique perspective, since we play games almost daily and at a high pace.

To review a shoe, we first go through a rigorous testing period, wearing the shoe in several practices and games. During these wearings, we assess many aspects of the shoe, those that cause us problems and those that work really well. Our reviews then break these down into categories: traction, cushioning, comfort, breathability, support and lockdown. At the end, we offer our evaluation, including whom we think the shoe would suit best.


Here is the link to our first review


We are high school basketball players like many of you, and we want to help you in the process of choosing a shoe for your upcoming season.
