The Best Indoor Ultimate Frisbee Shoes

If you are like me, you learned the hard way that running sneakers can’t seem to handle the intensity of Indoor Ultimate. After just a few weeks my toes literally busted out the sides of my nice expensive running sneakers on a gym floor. This was years ago when I was new to indoor and playing in a local pickup league.

I discovered that Basketball shoes are the way to go for Indoor Ultimate Frisbee. It makes sense since Basketball players cut, juke, jump, and run with the same intensity of Ultimate. Below is a chart of personal recommendations for the Top 15 Indoor Ultimate Frisbee shoes. Most of the chart is  mens and women’s Basketball shoes with a few indoor soccer and 5-finger toe shoes making their way to the top. It all depends on preference and the intensity of Ultimate at which you play. Unfortunately Basketball shoes seem to be, on average, more expensive than any other type of shoe so we searched long and hard to find you the best value. If you are new to Indoor Ultimate, we also have an article on all of the Indoor Ultimate Frisbee Rules and the differences from outdoor.


What is the Best Indoor Ultimate Frisbee Shoe?

I own a pair of Nike Men’s Overplay VII Basketball Shoe‘s and they have been amazing. In my opinion, they are the best mens shoe for indoor Ultimate Frisbee. For only around $60 these shoes offer great traction, comfort, and tremendous durability. You can read my in-depth review of them by clicking here (it’s #7). the $60 price mark is seriously a steal, I would have been okay with paying much more for them.

The best Indoor Women’s shoe is also the Overplay VII Basketball Shoe. Nike did it right by bringing the Overplay to the women’s segment as well. However, there is another shoe that grabbed the attention of many Ultimate women. That is the Women’s Pro Model Zero Basketball Shoe which offers the same durability with a completely different style. Both shoes are excellent and do their job well, it really just comes down to which style you prefer.
