granted, it's more suitable for outdoor use, but what if i play exclusively on hardwood ?

I play in my XDR Red Camos indoors all the time, they feel the exact same as my regular Kobe 8's to be honest, and i play about 15-20 hrs a week.

What did HOH Gallo tell you tho?

They just said it would be 1st come 1st served on Sat. Said there won't be any raffle when I asked, but im calling them again today or tmrw just to make sure.

Yeah they told me the same, but it's hard for me to take anyone's word for it, based on some of my retail experiences. But I'm just craving that feeling of wearing em right out the store.

Called HOH @ willowbrook last night to see how they were handling fades release and at first she said we did a raffle but hold on while i confirm that. After a brief hold she came back and said just come Saturday morning at 8a. Goin to call again today just to make sure..

Apparently you don't understand the purpose of that. It's to prove that you got your sneakers DEADSTOCK.  Which means Brand New, not sure if you knew that either so just throwing it out there. No one would lick the soles of a used shoe.  It's to prove that it's brand new.

 

And for those who thought I was serious about the colorway should stop being so gullible. You know who you are.

ive heard of employees rockin pairs in the back room bro

a lot of the stuff we think is ds has already been tried on
post #39520 of 83626

Not when you get them straight from the manufacturer.  It's not like employees at NDC tries on your shoes before shipping them out to you.  It's not a big deal to me, and it's even funnier to do it because it pisses a lot of people off.

The color description for 6/1 is "White/Gold", so it appears that those Season Enders is the pair that will release in 3 weeks.

Everything will be clearer closer to release date as stores start to get their stock in... but I really want the Black/Gold pair.

I don't know what's worse, the fact that you lick shoes, or your justification for licking shoes. Get money boys have taught you well

This. And the fact that anybody thinks that just because a shoe hasn't been worn that it's somehow REMOTELY sanitary is mean.gifmean.gifmean.gif

You do realize that these are made in China and then shipped around the world through MULTIPLE distribution centers and handled by who knows how many people in the process of packing and shipping them before they actually get to you... where you proceed to lick them. I swear sneakerheads these days are going to be responsible for some new bacterial outbreak from halfway around the world.

Doctor: "Sir we're still not sure how you managed to contract this disease, it's only found on very specific rubbers from eastern Asia."

Sneakerhead: "I LICK ALL MY SNEAKAS SO U KNOW HOW REAL I AM!!"

What do you mean by "sneakers?"

 

The 8s are excellent sneakers or basketball shoes that are meant to be hooped in.  If you're skeptical about low tops, these actually have amazing lockdown. I've played in hi tops and mids for every shoe prior to this one and I actually feel more secure in Kobe 8s

If you play exclusively on hardwood, no need to buy XDR.  The regular outsoles should hold up fine on hardwood and IMO perform better due to being softer and more pliable than XDR

I've personally been to factories in China. DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT lick your shoes. Unless you steam and sanitize them first. But shoes are meant to be worn not licked. Proving that they're DS does not require licking.

I really hope that white pair he was wearing in his last game is the one that releases. I absolutely LOVE them. Must cop for me. I am crossing my fingers it is that pair releasing. Don't worry, the Black/Gold's will still release.
