Are basketball more harmful than running shoes?

    Well it depends on the use. For normal walking it does not really matter. For running recent studies showed that wearing no shoes is the best, but that isn’t really a good option for jogging around the park. Basketball shoes do support the ankle to some extent which is needed for jumping and twisting while playing.

    Kobe Bryant has recently disagreed with the misconception of high-tops protecting the ankle from being twisted.  He wears low-cut shoes during his NBA games and says he has never suffered an ankle injury in them.  Nike has also released shoes from Kobe that are low-cut, along with the Hyperdunk Lows. While it is still recommended that you use basketball shoes to play basketball, there are still risks from injury that high-tops don’t negate.
