Slipped them on for a few minutes just to see how the fit was (no pics, I have a suit on
) and they feel a lot like the 12's in terms of fit. I went with a 9.5 on 12's, 9.5 on these, feels right. Pretty comfortable on, definitely have the "bootie" fit like the 12's, feel very similar. The low back heel cut out makes them very easy to put on, don't feel as tall on foot as they look.
Grizz was absolutely right, the lacing is worse than the 12's, I'm not even sure these can be relaced. The laces run under the posite piece in the midfoot, but are covered by material inside the shoe, so you have no access to the laces where they disappear from the upper....so you would have to somehow "fish" the laces through the eyelets in that fabric pocket without seeing them, to the correct eyelets...not sure it can be done, maybe use a coat hanger to guide them through? I really thought they would be accessible inside the shoe, but nope.
Gonna take them to the court tonight for some hoops. Will try to type up a little review when I get back tonight for those interested in performance on court stuff.
