It's a common misconception that high-tops provide the best ankle support. A modern sneaker that comes up under the ankle and provides secure lockdown can offer better support than a hightop that covers the ankle. It's why you'll often now see signature sneaker models with a cut under the ankle, like the Hardens/KDs/PGs/Kobes.

This is a pretty good read:

Got this:
Due to warning requirements imposed in California by Proposition 65, we cannot ship any items to California at this time. We're sorry for the inconvenience.
I bought from them before without this issue.

I see a lot of basketball shoes no longer have high ankle support, have they found a way to support your ankle without high tops?

A lot of it has to do with athletes realizing that high top material itself doe little to actually protect your ankle, and that the support of the shoe in areas like heel counters, and outriggers on the outsole, as well as use of materials that ensure your foot stays on the foot bed of the shoes, are far more important.

I used to wear high tops religiously and have converted to low tops and have had no issues making the transition and still protecting my ankle.

If someone steps on my ankle, you best believe you want a high top shoe that's been properly tightened. I even add additional ankle braces to both feet in exchange for quickness. Pros get away with low tops because trainers tape their ankles separately. Low tops also look better for casual folks who don't ball and just want style.

Unable to finish the order, because: "Due to warning requirements imposed in California by Proposition 65, we cannot ship any items to California at this time. We're sorry for the inconvenience." What's that?

Generally, only tennis specific shoes should be used on courts. Otherwise you risk marking the courts up if the sole is colored and you wear the soles down very quickly.

Basketball shoes aren't typically divided into neutral, stability, and motion control like running shoes. They all tend to be more neutral because the soles are flatter and typically midsole compression doesn't create as much instability like in running shoes.
