Which Basketball Shoes???
Since I hardly get to snowboard, I have to do other things most of the time. I have indoor courts handy so I've been playing a lot of basketball with friends and random people. I have some Nike running shoes, they aren't cutting it for me. No ankle support and just a bad fit for basketball.

I'd like some advice from any of you that play, these shoes are torturing me. My primary concerns:
1. Ankle support. This is big for me.
2. Fit for insoles. I'd really like to be able to fit my Remind insoles in them. I have em in my snowboard boots and they're awesome.
3. Durability. Not as big of a concern, they'll be worn inside, on the court only.

Any tips?? Trying to read through all of the manufacturer's BS has left me scratching my head. I realize it may be like snowboard boots and I need to try em on, but I have no idea where to even start. Thanks!!!

Hyper dunks

I went and tried some on today, tried about everything. Settled on Jordan True Flights. They seemed to have the best ankle support. We'll see how they hold up.

Hard to ball out in a shoe made for comfort and style

I actually tried the Hyperdunks. I didn't like the fit around my heel and they didn't feel as stable. The True Flight aren't really as much of a show shoe as most Jordan's seem to be. Running and jumping in them feels really natural. They are pretty comfortable, for my feet they were the best fit I tried on. No shoe will ever be as comfortable as my snowboarding boots though.
