Re: Basketball shoes for my daughter
I'm no true sneakerhead, but everyone's been complaining about the quality, and rightfully so. I've seen pairs of Jordans made with cardboard midsoles, and those are legit, store-bought ones. Then again, a lot of the people that complain are sometimes prissy about the smallest things. I got a pair of Black Cements and I'm perfectly happy with them (new to the Jordan game though).
Anyway, I really suggest you get her something a little more functional. If you can find kids size adidas shoes with PureMotion (even the faux PureMotion, which will likely appear), get it immediately. Her feet may hurt at first due to the adjustment to the barefoot feel, but I promise, the adaptation is worth the long-term awesomeness. If you want though, try it first for yourself, then see if you think your daughter can handle it.
