Pros: Snug fit, light weight, support
Pros: Snug fit, light weight, support
Pros: comfortability for a while
Cons: where the sockliner hits the heel irritates
Pros: lightweight, traction, multiple inserts
Cons: breathability, snug, velcro supportive strap
Pros: Lockdown and support is superb for a low-top. Traction is not top-notch but is very good. Lunarlon midsole is very comfortable and responsive.
Cons: The rubber on the outsole is thin and pliable making this shoe not fit for outdoor play. The Lunarlon midsole will bottom out relatively quickly.
“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
“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
“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
“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
“These shoes are great, they don't slip, the look good, and the perform well. They have herringbone traction along with shattered glass traction. Mostly synthetic materials, plastic, pleather. Snake print upper. ” --sir-sneakerton

“First things first I am writing this as someone who has not worn this barefoot and solely with socks. With that out the way the shoe fits great like most athletic shoes buy a size up to me that is a necessity for this shoe since the size up fits like my true size (could be me wearing socks though). The comfortability is the same as most free 5.0 (that being a good thing). Also the shoe feels...” --newtotheshoes
