AWESOME SHOES BUT COULD BE BETTER...
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
The Shoes are very well built and provide amazing support to the leg. But since the shoe is on a little bit bulky side it feels like a bit of drag while playing but you get used to it as it keeps you cemented to the court. Moreover being a non marking shoe it is not quite suitable for cement courts as the soles wear out quickly but it works like a charm in wooden courts. Overall it is a very good shoe for a very less price tag. I would however urge Decathlon to make the Luna Grey color version of the shoe available online or in stores.(It looks awesome!). So would I buy these shoes again??

Yes, Yes I would :)
Too heavy and SO out of choices for size 11+

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
With a whole generation of gigantic 6+ footers on the loose, it's a shame that I couldn't find any variety in basketball shoes for my kid who's 6'2"

I had to settle for a "one & only" leftover piece which is nothing but a heavy boot. I thought India has the largest young population.
Response of the brand
Hello Arvind

Thanks a lot for sharing your concern regarding Tarmak Shield 500 shoe. We deeply regret the inconvenience caused to you. 

Shield 500 is recommended for Intermediate users who aim for their competition level games and is best know for its 3 main qualities:
- Weblock - Lateral reinforcement that holds the foot firmly in place when changing direction.
- Power frame - Rigid insert located under the arch of the foot to improve the stability of the shoe.
- Extended side guard - extension of the shoe's outsole on the front of the foot for better stability when you take a jump.

However we do understand your concern with lesser options. So I would like to suggest you to have a look at another color option of the same model. If it is not available in your nearest store, then you can place an online order and will deliver it to you. And we have Size 48 (UK 12.5) in this model too! Here is the link: https://www.decathlon.in/p/8407929_shield-500-experienced-expert-adult-basketball-shoes-black-red.html#/4914-272-uk_5_5_eu_39

Hope this information helps. Keep writing to us as your feedback helps us improve :)

The shoe looks very cool, colour is awesome. It is very durable and has a great out-sole and grip on the court but the shoe weighs more and it needs a better cushioning.
