When it comes to style, what guy doesn't want the edge and boldness of an NBA player? Even if you don't play the game yourself, you can still upgrade your kicks with lifestyle shoes that have heavy basketball influences, like high-top cuts, straps, and even colorways inspired by some of the greats, like Michael Jordan.

These shoes don't have splashes of neon or bells and whistles that scream "I just stepped off the court." Instead, they have subtle nods to the sport in the form of exaggerated cuts, iconic silhouettes, and luxe materials—paired with elements from fall's hottest trends (think: suede).
