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?
