Called Ektio – Greek for “to protect and defend,” the sneaker is designed as a bootie within a shoe for form fitting, both laces and straps, along with bumpers on the soles to guard against ankle rolling. The Ektio was designed by Barry Katz, a New York doctor and former college basketball player who’s playing career was hampered by ankle injuries. The shoe goes out on November 1, exclusively on Dicks Sporting Goods website. Shoe will retail for $199.99
