    high tops basketball

    What is the difference high-tops and snearkers?

    I looked up the definition and it says high tops are sneakers that cover the ankle.

    Don't all sneakers cover the ankle. In fact, don't all shoes cover the ankles except sandels and flipflaps.

    High tops are wore in basketball? any other sports?
    The top wore in basketball is called a jersey, but I thought jersey was a sweater.

    Re: high tops basketball

    High top sneakers are worn mainly in basketball because they support the ankle. Basketball players need extra ankle support because of the frequent and quick lateral movements they make. Some players who spend most of their playing time runing up and down the court wear mid-cuts or low-cut shoes because they rely on speed.
