As the NBA playoffs reach crunch time, the desire to get on the court and test your jumper has never been more real. That said, it only takes a couple of airballs before your pickup game loses a lot of its original excitement. Time to optimize your game. A quick way to making the most of limited time on the hardwood is by investing in the right pair of basketball shoes. We’ve explored all facets of that world, from affordable basketball shoes to the best basketball shoes of the NBA season, and one pair stands out: the PUMA RS-Dreamer.

J. Cole’s signature PUMA shoe is, perhaps surprisingly, one of the top-rated basketball shoes at the moment and, priced at just 125 dollars, it’s a must-cop. RS foam cushioning to the majority ProFoam midsole ensures a lightweight ride with crucial support where it matters. A full sticky rubber outsole features engineered traction points for optimal grip while a knitted upper and dynamic lacing system keep you locked in without any added weight.

Technical credentials aside, the PUMA RS-Dreamer comes in a host of eye-catching colorways. The original colorways look to multi-colored hits against a white or black backdrop, but new arrivals substitute in a bold, neon knit upper. The neon RS-Dreamer dropped in an orange colorway already, but we’ve got our eyes locked on the new blue iteration.
