Let us know how they feel though, they look pretty heavy.

I understand what you saying but that Ware incident was a freak injury. Wouldn't ankle braces cause other injuries too since they restrict movement of the ankle? They said on their website that it doesn't cause other injuries but I haven't yet to play in them. The shoes are fairly light. But I prefer heavier shoes similar to old school bball shoes than some of the new light ones. I feel like light shoes don't provide support because of less material. I'll let you know about the shoes when I play in them though
