i think we should create a show off you bball kicks thread, or show off your kicks in general, since there are other ones that showcase watches, sunglasses, cell phones, etc. and I'm sure there are collectors out there that would like to display their recent purchases or treasured pairs.

My bball shoes are in Canada, I can't really take pics.

I have a pair of Huarache 2004 that were already posted here, and Lebron umm.. not sure. I'd have to look at the whole Lebron collection to know. Anyone have a link?

Oh I also have a pair of AF25... They are like the Cadillac of bball shoes.. Very plush and comfortable, but heavy and clunky. Wish I would have waited until the low-tops came out

A real shame AF25s didn't really catch on. I have the AF25 Supremes and a pair of lows. Most comfortable shoes bar none.

for the last few months I been thinking about getting these, but I have so many pairs of Hyperize kinda hard to justify to the wifey I now need a $300+ dollar pair of basketball shoes.
I know it sounds goofy but these are supposed to make you jump an extra inch or 2, there is something in the insole. Check the link website for full description. Only weighs 15 ounces!

http://www.athleticpropulsionlabs.com/


With its unique construction, the Concept 1 basketball shoe fits completely true-to-size and provides the secure feeling of a shoe that is designed to perform at the highest level of competition. The upper materials are a combination of the finest carbon fiber look synthetics, microfiber mesh and special anti-microbial linings to keep the foot comfortable and performing at the highest level throughout extended periods of play.

The Concept 1 is for serious basketball players. High-density collar padding on the interior is designed to maximize comfort while providing for the use of ankle braces.

The patent-pending Load ‘N Launch™ technology is implanted in a cavity in the forefoot of the shoe and is designed to provide an instant improvement in vertical leap.* The device works in conjunction with the high-performance materials of the outsole, midsole, insole and sock liner to create a performance experience unlike any other basketball shoe.

* Carbon fiber look synthetic upper materials are ultra-lightweight
* Load ‘N Launch™ forefoot device designed to increase vertical leap instantly
* High-Rebound, carbon fiber wash EVA midsole for superior cushioning and energy return
* Crystal rubber outsole for long-lasting performance and visual appeal
* High-grade Thermoplastic Urethane shank for heel-to-forefoot stability and shock absorption
* Load ‘N Launch™ sock liner featuring rebound EVA, APSPOX and Poron for maximum comfort, shock absorption and performance.
* High-impact EVA insole for maximum comfort and cushioning
* Clear window on outsole makes technology visible

it really depends on ur build, size, position. i mean if ur going to play post and ur a bigger guy, than you'll need hte wide base along with higher support. small guys like myself would prefer low tops, light and slim

you really can't go wrong with hyperdunks.

(lol at those starbury, i would have liked to try those

Hey guys,

Solecollector.com has the best basketball shoe reviews out. http://solecollector.com/live/category/kicksology/

http://solecollector.com/live/kickso...nike-zoom-kd2/

I currently am rocking both the KD2 and the KobeV in all blue. The reviews say that the KD2 could very likely be the best shoe of the season which is unbelievable considering they come at such a cheap price. Although, they are not the greatest looking shoe in the world, I would have to agree. I love them.

KobeV's are very lightweight and great for agile guards, however, the main reason I bought them is because they are the best looking shoe on the current market imo.

KD2:



KOBE V Miles Davis Edition:




Here are some other shoes from my current collection:

Flightposite KG


Flight Club


Nike Shox VC I


T-Mac I


Air Jordan XVIII (18)

^ I like the flight clubs. Trying to score a pair for $100 or less. I've also been looking for the KD1's. Never even realized that KD has his own signature shoes until I saw some kid ballin in them

actually they are a really supportive shoe. they might not look like it but once you wear them youll feel that the cushioning at the ankle is really comfortable and will keep you from rolling your ankle, they are also really light and have great grip

I got the LBJ VII about 2 months ago and so far I love it

It's extremely lightweight and very flexible (but it does have a break-in period)

The 360 airbag system on it has great impact protection, when you land the impact is distributed throughout the whole shoe and you can feel it for sure, I've gone through a lot of bball shoes but my feet tend to hurt afterwards ... but with these they seem ok

Also ~ I also have the Zoom Kobe Vs and they are amazing too ... the two pairs of shoes feel very different but it's kinda hard to compare cause I don't know how to explain it very well

I think with the ZoomV it's more bouncy whereas the LBJ VII feels more like cushioning ... I happen to prefer the cushioning more just cause my feet hurt less after a long game ~ they both have great traction but one thing in favour of Kobe's is that it has better ventilation ... VIIs tend to heat up a little more than the ZoomVs

lastly ... the LBJs look great I think but I don't think you can go wrong with either shoe

A bit off topic but does anyone know where I can pick up the recently retroed Vancouver Grizzlies Mike Bibby jersey by Adidas? I heard Van City Sports @ Granville Station has them but the old guy there (I think he's the owner) was a fucking prick to me the last time I was in there so they're not getting a dime of my money.

I personally don't like the looks, but the feel and comfort and I guess science? behind the shoe are awesome. Feels light and I feel good making sharp cuts etc.

6 years? Holy crap! Have you done the bounce test? I bet these were worn out in 6 months.

There was a recent article about high tops vs low tops and statistically there was no difference in rolling ankles. It comes down to personal preference, and the current trend in the NBA is going away from high tops to low tops. Look at the number of big men wearing low tops now to have the extra quickness and flexibility.

I went from Nike high top Shox to Kobe Vs and the difference is fantastic. The Shox are just too heavy and clunky, the Kobe Vs are so light and allow much more foot movement.

I had considered LeBrons yet wanted to try a low top since many of the NBA big men are making a switch. I don't think I'm going back to a high top.

I must say the kobe iv's were very comfortable but I didn't want to get the v's wanted to try something new and the new lebron's are just as comfortable as well..just needs time to get used to it and break em in

NBA Players who wear low cuts will tape up their ankles. Most recreational players will not.
