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.
I hear great reviews about lowtop Kobes...unfortunately I don't want to risk ankle issues for a little movement.
I hate ankle injuries at this age, they take forever to heal
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.
