    Just got a pair of Kobe X's and they are right up there with the best. I was playing in some Curry 1 lows but I landed on a foot and suffered a bad ankle roll which also popped the top lace eyelet out. The Curry's are also great shoes but the traction was questionable on the terrible courts I play on.

    So overused honestly. My gym was littered with people rocking the low Kobe tops. I've seen guys roll their ankle in pain with it on.

    Personally I've used 2 Under Armor shoes (high tops). Favorite of the two was Lightening 4. Never had a bad ankle sprain with it. Worn them out within 3 years though (I regret not just buying another pair of it). Great on indoor courts. Traction was amazing and helped me spot up shoot better than the one I have currently. Current Under Armor is better for blacktops but doesn't have the stability/comfort I had with Lightening 4.

    I used to play basketball in low tops, worthless. Needs to be mid or highs. Protecting your ankles and feet is the reason you ball with basketball shoes.

    I just bought Nike Air Max 2 Infuriate Mid, best balls shoes I've ever had. Jumping all over the place smoking everyone.

    The Kobe AD mids have been my favorite for a while now!

    My favorite Jordan's were the 6s and particularly the 8s, although the 8s really fell apart if you used them outdoors particularly. I had a 30 not that long ago that I hated. Had to give it away, but I'm still using a 29 for most of my outdoor playing that I like a lot. I hear the new 34 is great, but I haven't found a colorway I'm into.

    I have a pair of Harden's from a couple years ago I just couldn't break through the strap above the toe box in well enough for my taste. I have a Lebron 13 that I really don't like the way the sides run up, but they have no support across the back.

    I really like both the KD 11 and the KD 12.

    I loved the Kobe 8, that I think Addidas rebranded as the Crazy 8 not long ago.

    But if I'm really playing indoors I have a pair of Nike Kobe ADs from 2018 that are my favorite going right now.


    Another classic from my childhood I loved was the Nike Air Flight Light.

    I stopped getting Lebrons a few years ago after I finally admitted to myself that they're too heavy for me. A shoe built for Lebron probably isn't ideal for me lol.

    I really like the zero.3 Westbrook's from this year, they have a really snug fit for me which I like. I also tried out the Converse Pro BB's and liked them a lot. They're a pretty minimalist design but that makes them super responsive on your feet.

    I finally got this pair of Jordan 34s, and played in them a couple times last week, and this is a great playing shoe. Much more structured feeling than I expected, felt plenty locked in. Almost no break in required. Great traction. And it feels super reactive to movement. The only thing I think the Kobe has on it is that it feels like it sits a little high off the ground. Honestly I think the Kobe sits a little low, and I'd just gotten used to it.




    I'm considering doing Nike By You versions of the KD 13, which looks so I'm guessing will perform almost exactly like the 12, and the Air Rize 2, which has a massive zoom unit in the forefoot, and has the split sole set up, so I'm guessing will feel a bit like these, but with the more structured knit upper.

    I'm also intrigued by the Jordan 35, which I read feels a lot like these, but has a full zoom unit in the heel as well, and a more structured upper, and the Jordan 34 SE, which is essentially this same shoe, but with a zipper cover over the upper, that adds to the structure and the lockdown feeling.

    Once again, the 35 doesn't seem to have a decent looking colorway coming out the gate.
