Help finding my son some basketball shoes, he wants Stephen Curry Shoes, but need advice on whats cool.

I looked up the Stephen Curry shoes on and they are quite pricey. The problem is not the price. He wears a size 3 or 3.5 in boys. The smallest shoes for a Curry basketball shoe is 3.5 and they only have weird colors. I need advice on what I could buy that would have some style to it and also fit? He's 11 and loves basketball. My budget is $100 or under.

Princess daughter plays basketball. Is pretty good at it too. HS freshman on the varsity team. Yada yada yada.. ya, I know. Tells me today she needs new shoes. I look at them and they look fine. No - the laces are worn out she said. You want new shoes cuz the laces are worn out? Yes, she replies. These are $100+ shoes BTW. No way am I gonna buy another pair just because the laces are worn out.

My advice? Get him interested in another sport.

You must be out of the loop.

A. None of these are really "basketball" shoes.
B. Yeezy's don't exist in 3.5Y (yet, but they're on the way)
C. They said UA Curry's were too expensive, so I highly doubt they'd want to pony up the cash for some retro Jordan's.

What is a weird color?

Available in:

Aluminum/White/Stealth Grey

Aluminum/Antifreeze/Gold - these might qualify as weird........but for an 11 year old, who knows?

My kid is 10 and just as happy wearing his cheap And1 as he is with his Soldiers.

I gave up a long time ago trying to figure out what is cool now.

I found the best thing to do is go to a shoe site - Finish Line, Foot Locker, Foot Action, etc, and use the search tool to narrow it down by size and price..........then sit there with your kid for hours looking at each shoe. If you are lucky enough to be able to narrow the search down by brand and other stuff it might take less time. Wink Good luck!
