Nike Kobe X Men's Basketball Shoe - Blue Lagoon/Vapor Green/Black

A comfortable, traction beast, but with a rigid upper.

legionofboom

Pros: comfort, traction, zoom, impact protection, durable upper

Cons: stiff upper

My Performance Thoughts on these. Little background on me,  i'm 6'0 around 175 lbs, played HS and a little college ball at my university. Ran the SG. Traction: top notch on these, doing handle work, any lateral movement, and sharp cuts the shoes gripped the floor extremely well. I didn't really have to wipe at all. I thought they were significantly better than the 8s and slightly better...

Nike KD VI Elite - Mens - Turbo Green/Night Shade/Light Lucid Green/Pink

Nike KD VI Elite - Mens - Turbo Green/Night Shade/Light Lucid Green/Pink

“The traction on the KD VI Elite is top notch. I had issues with slippage on a few other shoes (UA Anatomix Spawn and Nike HyperRev) playing on an unkempt court, but these performed much better. The cushion is excellent for impact protection and it is quite responsive. However, due to the cushioning setup, you don't get as much court feel as a shoe like the Kobe 9 or Rose 4.5. Also, the forefoot...” --UsedToBeCool

Nike KD VI Elite - Mens - Photo Blue/Atomic Mango/Polarized Blue/Team Orange

“First off a shout out to our MVP KD for bagging the award. He deserved it both on and off court. I was a bit skeptical playing in lows (again) since the last lows i played in was the Kobe VI. I loved the Kobe VI for the overall performance minus the ventilation issue. So for quite sometime i've been playing in mostly lebrons and high cut shoes. But then it suddenly came to me that i think...” --ML500

Kobe 8 System Men's Basketball Shoe

Kobe 8 System Men's Basketball Shoe

“Nike Kobe 8 is an excellent shoe. It has to be the best shoe from Nike that I have worn. If you have not bought a pair to hoop in, then you are missing out.    Fit--   Fit is great. I think these run true to size. I like my basketball shoes to fit snug so I get an 11.5. I also have a size 12 that I wear and it fits fine. I just prefer 11.5. Heel lockdown is perfect. No heel...” --russemup

Nike Kobe VII Supreme - Mens - White/Black/Concord

Nike Kobe VII Supreme - Mens - White/Black/Concord

“Traction packed shoe.  It is a very responsive shoe.  Despite it looking like it is a hard, plastic shoe, it is actually very pliable.  It does crease very easily.  The ridges wear pretty easily if someone steps on them while you are playing.  The shoe is "closed" so your feet will get hot and it does not have vents to allow air to flow thru.    The...” --Chie3
