Why They’ll Love It: Doctor-designed and tested at both Drexel University and the Hospital for Special Surgery in NYC, the Ektio line of basketball shoes help to prevent ankle sprains—an all-too-common injury for weekend warriors and regular hoops players. With the Wraptor, players can skip the ankle tape and rely instead on the straps that help to support ankle ligaments and keep them in line. In addition, the Wraptor has bumpers that help reduce the likelihood of ankle roll-overs, and a neoprene inner boot that helps keep feet securely in place.
Suggested Retail Price: $120-$150
