Looking for suggestions. Gonna have to pickup a new pair soon, I grabbed some Kobe8's about 2 months ago and I've already worn down the outsole around the pivot area to the point where I can see that plastic-ish material showing.
Sad thing is these were XDR's from NikeID (xtra durable my ass)
Not too fussed about the looks, but I would help if they had a removable insole as I use Superfeet insoles.
kobes for outdoor will just kill them quickly. honestly, for outdoor shoes, you might as well go to nike factory and choose any shoe that has decent protection and stability thats on sale. or just go with the hyperfuse. hyperdunks will wear out quickly on outdoor courts.
Try out Kobe's outdoor specific line, Venomenon, they're really sturdy. I heard it's not available in North America (I'm in Asia) but you should be able to find some on ebay. The only thing I don't like about it is the zoom air is only in the forefoot not heel.
