    "Have trouble finding/buying a sneaker -- wide, good ankle support and made in the USA -- to help this 70+ year old jump shooter play league hoops 3x a week! Just bought two pairs of the 581 so I don't run out. This is a great shoe!"

    "I love the shoe,I have two pairs one for future use, the only reason I didn't put excellent is the quality of the insole it could and should be better, however if I should need another pair of basketball sneakers I would buy them again esp. if the insole were improved!!!!"

    I love them.

    Yes, I recommend this product.

    "These shoes may be the best I've owned in 46 years of playing basketball. Affordable 4E width basketball shoes have become impossible to find in the past two years. My All-terrain shoes have been New Balances for more than a decade, so I felt confident ordering these shoes without first trying them on. They are sturdy, comfortable and provide excellent traction. Shipping was very fast. I shall soon order another pair to have on hand when this pair wears out."

    Great ankle/arch support, keeping an eye on the leather for cracking

    1/31/16 by | Chicago

    • Used Product For: 2-4 weeks
    • Primary Activity: Playing a Team Sport

    Yes, I recommend this product.

    "I've played a few games in them so far and they seem to have great ankle support. I know they're supposed to have good arch support as well, and so far that seems to be the case. The only thing I'm keeping an eye on is the "leather" (or whatever the external material is), since it seems like it's quickly developing a "fold" by my toes, and I'm hoping that won't crack down the road."
