Wearing basketball shoes with the appropriate women or men clothing can bring a savvy fashion statement. There are however some fashion rules you should follow in order to have your day to day women or men clothing incorporate well with your basketball shoes. 

For example, if your basketball shoes are flashy containing very stand-out colors, and with a lot of detail, it would be safer to wear them with women or men clothing that somehow match the shoes. Color Scheme is everything so you look good; otherwise, if you just throw in any clothing without proper selection, you might just look like a clown.

You can however wear basketball shoes with other types of pants for your casual outgoing. However I think it is not a good idea to wear basketball shoes at a formal event. 

How To Wear Basketball Shoes with Shorts (and what socks to use)

Personally, a nice pair of shorts go best with low top basketball shoes. Hence, when wearing low top basketball shoes, it is a good idea to use a low cut neutral pair of socks that fit around your ankles. But whatever you do, make sure you get your basketball shoes to stand-out as opposed to your goofy socks. Cargo shorts are the best type of shorts to pair with your basketball shoes as seen here: 

Cargo shorts will naturally give a much more mature feeling than just a normal pair of sport shorts. As with your socks, you do not want your shorts to overshadow your basketball shoes. Be sure to always have your basketball shoes be the centerpiece of what you are wearing.  

Keep A Good Color Combination

As basketball shoes have different kinds of patterns and colors, you may think to match your color women or men clothing attire with it. But do not be too keened to match every color in your basketball shoes with your clothing, one or two colors in your shoes with a color match in your clothing will do the trick. Just be sure to have the color scheme among the clothes and shoes go hand-in-hand so you are not too colorful yet remaining fashionable.
