Question 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!!!

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.

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.
