Honestly, I'm not feeling it. Low cut was okay with the last one, I guess, but then this one REALLY looks like you're going to break ankles with it.Just not your opponent's. And if you put kleats on it, it'll look exactly like a soccer shoe. :ohwell:

It's only a sample anyway. I have faith.

Like them ... they took the soccer shoe inspiration even further for this shoe. Only thing I don't like is the huge heel loop. People were against the IV's and the low cut idea, and the look as well intially. But the Kobe IV's have become an INSTANT Nike CLASSIC in terms of performance, looks, and fashion.

Are you sure thats a basketball shoe and not a training shoe? Kobe does his own line of training shoes, just like Lebron and Jordan, incase you didnt know....

in my humble opinion, the low cut suppose to free the ankles from the high cut binds so you can break someone's ankle freely, suddenly, and more flexible...

actually i wore the ZK1, ZK2, ZK3, hyperdunk Kobe ed., and the ZK4...
and i'm a SG...
these shoes has some advantages of their own

these are the criterias for me
Best Ankle Support : ZK3
Best Cushioning : ZK1 n ZK2
Best lightweight : Hyperdunk
Best to stop and go : ZK2
Best for crossover and break some ankles : ZK4
Best support to jumpers (fade away, pull up, etc) : ZK2 n ZK4
Best for sprint : ZK4

my suggestion is pick the shoes that suit best in your game style...

just wait till the ZK5 launched then buy it, then feel it,...

i believe the ZK5's characteristic is not to far away from the ZK4

so have a nice day mates...

Aside from a bigger chance of you breaking your opponent's ankles, don't low-cut shoes also increase the chance of you breaking your OWN ankles?
