I've played in my everyday basketball adidas forever. Do shoes specifically for tennis make an actual difference. And if so, what?

Yes, they have better tread patterns for tennis, now wheres that vid?

of course they help but that doesnt mean that other shoes won't do ..

I think the shoes make a difference, our couch got our team some head shoes, ionno wat kind but they slowed me down a lot, then when i changed to some Nike shoes i moved way better, i was faster and i was moving my feet more... i guess cause the head shoes were heavy
