Default my shoes

I have the Jordan sub zeroes for b-ball, regretting I got them though, they comfortable but not to pretty IMO.

I just got a pair of Nike Shox 2:40's and I love them. Nice look, very comfortable, not really ball shoes but they don't hurt when playing ball, I'm quicker in them.

I wear LBJ2s. I also own two pairs of TMAC 2s and a pair of TMAC 1s. I was thinking about picking up a pair of TMAC 5s after my LGJ2s wear out. Can you give me some pros and cons?

I wear a pair of Nike Air Force Operates (the ones Amare used to wear) for indoor ball (nice and light and with good support, even for lowcuts and a solid pair for a big man) and LeBron Zoom 20-5-5 for outdoor (heavy, but REALLY comfy). I used to wear a pair of TMac 2s for outdoor, but I didn't really like them all that much, as well as a pair of TMac 4s which REALLY SUCK (I made the mistake of buying them right after they came out; but they're really HEAVY and they make my feet blister and bleed around the arch area after 1/2 an hour of play as well as starting to break apart about 10 hours of play into wearing them - the sole started to unglue from the front of the shoe).

I don't like the T-Mac 5s. Besides being ugly, they seem to be heavy and easily worn out. I had friends who have them and say they like them, but after trying on a pair I was skeptical of its performance, seems it's easy to roll and ankle and the traction seems to be weak...I'd probably pick up a pair of 2k5s now that they're cheap all over.

I ball in Zoom Drives mostly...but I'm about to wear them out. They're nice, though it has no ankle support. Been playing in LBJ2s before that, was a good pair and I wore the hell out of them. Looking to pick up the Penny 4s next.

I love the Tmac 5's. They aren't heavy like some other poster said.

I have always had foot problems in basketball where the bottom of both my feet would be extremely sore during the games, kind of like a sharp pain in the middle of the arch. I felt that in every shoe I had, except the Tmac 5's.

Right now I've got a pair of white and red Nike Vandals. I'm waiting for the Penny 2's to come out.
