What do you think of the Gemini 3 Duke? I am looking into them but no place locally has them for me to try on

Side panels are stiffer than the 2, cushioning feels fantastic, and fit is right on. I like the threadborne Slingflex better though.

Under armour should streamline basketball. No more weird hybrid models that you only find at Marshall and Ross. Second get rid of curry .5 models it just confuses the marketplace. Lower prices back to $115. Get a number two guy. Whoever it is. Just put more people in product.

At one time I felt they had a pretty solid group with DeAndre Jordan,brandon jennings, kemba walker and a couole other but they all left or were dropped when UA signed Curry and gave him most of their attention. I think raymon Felton and Corey Brewer are still on the roster

I agree with pretty much all of this. I thought I saw pretty recently, or kinda recently that Under Armour had a patent on a logo they were gonna use. It was like a letter on all four sides of a cirlce....if that makes sense lol.

I do like what they do with like Lux models or other models that look like performance, but use real materials. I tried on a pair of Clutchfit Drive 2s and I didn't really like the material.....plastics and fuse or whatever. Like, the "Promo" model I think is cool.

Yea brewer is good a 3 and D player. Yea I wish they could sign John Wall he is in the D.C. area. Local in relation to the Headquarters. The question with that situation is he would be on his fourth brand and Ross is still clearing inventory of the jwall1 and jwall1. I like curry lows though I know he doesn't wear them in games because of past issues. It is hard to buy a product that the endorser doesn't even wear. The vast majority of the sigs are low tops now. Sorry for the ramble I like the dialogue.

I like the Lux too. I thought they would be a limited run but finish line has a full size run in 3 of the colors half off.

I agree with some of this. I mean, he wears them to practice, so I guess he tries to promote them. Companies sell shoes without a name on them all the time....I guess some NBA players wear them even though they don't have a shoe deal.

There was a limited run of them. There were like a couple different colorways that were limited to like 600 pairs made. Them they did different colorways of more of a GR on the foot sites. I would like to grab another pair of the Lux 1s, but I already have 2 pairs of 1s and I don't like to be greedy lol......I might change my mind soon

Have you played in the lux's. Do the materials hurt the performance.

Jumped on the sale on the Slingrides for a little over 40 shipped

 

They definitely comfy, something I'd wear casual. But I'm thinking of returning and putting that $40 towards some Gem 3s -- getting slightly back into more distance training and have always wanted to try the Gemini line.  Current runners are the Fortis and the original Adi Energy Boost

They are low. I don't have any Kobe 8 to compare, but they are low.

I tried on the 2 and the ankle collar jabbed into my ankle bone. Does that break in after a while(or do you not even have that issue?). Or does the 3 have a softer/more pliable ankle collar? I love everything else about how the 2 fit me, it's just the ankle would jab into my ankle bone every time I took a step.

I didn't have that, but the 3 is cut lower under the ankle bone.

Closer look of Drive 4. These have potential to get back to where the first CFD left off
post #3590 of 3593
I actually love the CFD3. But yeah, these should kill.
post #3591 of 3593
I am a huge CFD1 fan myself....thats were it ends. Im old school, Micro G for life!!!
post #3592 of 3593

Looks like they took some elements from the Fire Shot and Curry 3 for those.  The Drive line is basically their version of Nike's Hyperdunk line.  Some models are going to be home runs and others will be underwhelming.

 

They really have to introduce an improved cushioning system at some point.  Charged is fine as an alternative, but they need something at the level of Boost and Max Zoom.  Charged is like Bounce and Lunar.
