The Guide to Buying Customised Basketball Shoes from the US
Customised sneakers have perhaps been a part of sneaker culture for as long as sneakers have existed. Basketball shoes have become in-demand collectible items. Whether you're wearing them on the court or displaying them like a baseball card collection, you want your shoes to be as unique as possible. Now more than ever before, your basketball shoes can be as unique as you are while boasting maximum functionality. While Under Armour doesn't currently offer shoes with the option of customisation, including the popular Steph Curry model, they will hopefully soon and join Adidas and Nike in offering unique designs in the USA like the ones described here.
Nike iD Customised Basketball Shoes
Nike has a long line of basketball shoes available in the USA that consumers may customize with premium graphics and logos. Here are the top three highest rated:
These shoes offer you the opportunity to represent your favorite city with a graphic of the city's map on the Swoosh and lining and add the town's abbreviation on the heel. You may also opt for a Nike-sponsored summer league logo as an alternative as well as choose a retro gum rubber sole.
The shoe itself features low-profile Nike Zoom Air units in the forefoot and heel that deliver responsive cushioning that bounces back and powers your next move. The one-piece sleeve of breathable mesh offers sock-like comfort, zoned support, and flexibility while hyperosite material on the toe, mid foot and collar enhance durability and support.
Other benefits include off center laces that enhance support during sharp cuts, a foam-lined collar, flywire cables for locked-down support, and a durable, translucent rubber outsole for multidirectional, multi-surface traction.
This model offers the same city graphic customization as well as a choice between two bright, bold graphics and an option to add multicolor speckles to your midsole.
Tightly woven, single-layer FlyWeave upper offers lightweight support and lockdown. Some areas are more flexible while others are thicker and stronger, delivering stability and comfort where and when you need it. Full-length visible Nike Zoom cushioning redesigned for added flexibility and bounce offers low-profile responsiveness. As you walk, super-strong, ultralight Flywire cables integrate with the laces for dynamic support, loosening and tightening with your natural motion.
Other features include foam heel counters designed to enhance stability and phylon midsoles for lightweight cushioning.
This third option also offers the city customisation option, Nike-sponsored summer league logo alternative, and gum rubber sole option. Consumers also have the option to add either a paisley graphic or choose a NIKEiD, exclusive graphics for bold summer style.
A rounded outsole enables the smooth lateral transitions required for fast, fluid play. The Nike Zoom Air unit in the heel has been redesigned to be even lighter and lower-profile than ever before, providing responsive cushioning for every step. As for stability, a unique strap design helps keep your foot locked in while keeping the heel in place.
Other features include hyperfuse construction for durability, breathability and support, a mesh tongue and collar to help keep your feet cool, an outsole herringbone pattern that wraps up the sidewalls for maximum traction, and a large pivot circle for multidirectional traction.
Adidas Mi Customised Basketball Shoes

This first model is designed to attack the rim with an energy-returning boost in the midsole and the signature finesse of USA professional basketball player, D-Rose. Customisation options include custom colors, graphic prints, and personalized accents. Choose your favorite team colors, graphic print, and choose between either a color or glow-in-the-dark outside.

Channel speed, agility, and the split-second decision-making of professional USA basketball player, Damian Lillard, with this model. Built with seamless tongue construction, BOUNCE cushioning, and Continental Rubber, these shoes will help you excel on the court.
Customisation options include a choice between a textile jacquard, suede, or synthetic upper and a print of camouflage, splatter, snake or black ice if your choice is synthetic.
