The Alexio is the 3rd generation of Ektio Basketball Shoes. “Alexio” is Greek for “Defender and Warrior of Man” and that’s exactly what this shoe does. This shoe offers unmatched lockdown, extraordinary court-feel, and the highest level of performance a basketball shoe can offer. You probably already know by now, but ankle sprains are officially optional.
Ektio Ankle Support Technology was doctor invented and clinically tested to provide ankle support never before seen in a basketball shoe, bringing you maximum support and the highest level of balance and stability. The shoe incorporates straps built inside the walls of the shoe and lateral side bumpers, designed to replace the use of tape or ankle braces.
Sizing: We suggest ordering the same size you would normally order in a standard basketball shoe. The shoe runs true to size. If you previously owned an Ektio Breakaway, the Alexio runs slightly bigger than that, so order accordingly.
Weight: Size 9 Alexio’s are roughly 15.5 oz. This includes the added materials from the bracing system and lateral side bumpers. If you add the weight of a brace to a standard basketball shoe, it’s very comparable.
