Hopefully the color ways are toned down compared the the ones they gave us on the 7s. And continue to dislike these even though ppl can change their minds so I can get these on discount.
I like the upper as it will have unlimited potential if Nike takes advantage of it and not hold back until the upcharge in the Elites. The Swoosh seems to be woven unlike on the Kobe X that has a fused one on the fused upper. Those are not "worth" $180. People hate this when people say this in relation to the price increase but the upgrades on these although not by $30, is good. I know if the Kobe X looked like these, they would be selling better than they are.
I think the KD logo is carbon fiber
. The outsole traction pattern looks great and even though some don't like the segmented zoom forefoot but it's needed for flexibility. Ya'll gotta remember the shoes are designed to help the player perform their best on court. Yeah they can make them look good too(these look good not cheap looking) and perform but they can't make everybody happy.
With that said can't wait to play around with id and see colorways with better color blocking. I know I will have to pay the retail on some but the GRs I can grab on discount.
