Well now that I've used the shoe for the first time. Theese are actually my very first basketball shoes to ball in. Well anyway the shoes was very nice to play in, a bit heavy but really nice. It has excellent how to you say erm... "airbag" at the heel that is both for the pump as for the cushioning. it has great fit. But it is annoying because maybe twice at practice the straps would go off in the middle of a game.
