Honestly most of the shoes he made in his prime were the best. I don't get how guys use low cut Kobes without ruining their ankles at my gym.

i had rampant ankle problems before getting the Kobes. Have sprained my ankle maybe once in 4 years wearing them.

It's not the cut, it's the weight of the shoes that gives you a chance to aovid the injury, and how the back of the shoe curves over your heel, kinda like soccer cleats.

Besides, if you're going to roll your ankle, it's gonna happen regardless of what shoes you are wearing.

This, the width of the sole (outrigger) and how low to the ground you are. I think if I were wearing braces or stiff high tops the times I rolled my ankles I would have blown out a knee. I had a buddy wear the old Reebok Zig's that had a really stiff upper dislocate his ankle because he landed on someones foot.

Not true, i've wore some shoes that are very susceptible to spraining. I always sprain wearing this particular shoe, after awhile I noticed the pattern and stop wearing them. The shoes DOES make a difference.
