what's the kicks in the front? I thought Dray wore Clear Outs

Draymond changed to Nike zoom rev 2017. I tried his black and yellow PE's on in a footlocker.  The fit was terrible for me and I found it uncomfortable.  I think I might of needed to go up a full size for it to not feel narrow.

Those are Zoom Rev 2017. He wore another colorway for game 1 so maybe these he'll lace up tonight. It's the only pair in front of his locker.

Do y'all think Nike would give me a voucher? I've worn these maybe 4 times, just shooting around. not even to run full. They feel fine I just don't like em for hoop (no lockdown) so they're basically collecting dust.

Wow!!! I bet they're NikeLab or tier one only.

Does anyone know what ever happened with these? I think Nike dropped the ball by not releasing them.

Did your zoom bag pop on these?

I just don't understand why they made the sole under the air unit so damn thin. They could have made it quite a bit thicker with no sacrifice in weight. Maybe flexibility was the biggest factor there I dunno

Maybe they would but that happened to me also the first month and the shoe lasted me an entire year before the airbag popped so who knows. Yeah

I'm not a fan of the colors used on the MC.

@thapointguy

Yea more blue and green would be nice

MCs are nice, but damn... Can't help but feel like they could've been better with a different color swoosh and outsole maybe. Something to break up all that black.

I dig all the black but Hopefully the weave is better in person
post #6769 of 6789
MC's are nice, I wish they weren't elites though. Something about the elites is off-putting.

I would've liked a different color swoosh but other than that I like them.

I bought the elite greys a few days ago for hooping and man, I wanted to love these shoes. Felt so nice in the store and in warm ups, but in both my league games on Tuesday and Thursday, I had to switch sneakers because these KDs were KILLING my arches. I've only had that problem once before with retro Air Uptempos. Normally, I can throw on any pair of sneakers and be fine. Is anyone else having that problem? I'm thinking of trying insoles, but I really might have to return these. Shame, because I love the look and feel of the shoes, but 10 minutes of playing and I have to take them off.

 

I think the design of the shoe is the problem. Look right at the center of the sneaker above the zoom air bag. They added an exaggerated arch in there, and that's exactly where my foot starts to hurt.

Don't know if it was specifically my arches but my feet were Blazing when I wore them. I played on and off for a total of three hours. In between games I'd sit and my feet would be alright but during games I noticed my feet were hurting again.

I have a pair of non-elites and didn't have that problem.

Do you have a pair of the regular 9's?

Whatever the problem is I think I'm having the same problem with my Lillard 3's mean.gif

No, I didn't have the regular KDs. I actually bought the Elites in a 1/2 size smaller initially because I couldn't get them to lock down exactly in my true size. I returned them before playing in them because they just felt too tight when I tried them on at home compared to my other sneakers. Then, I went to an outlet and saw the regular KDs and tried them on... perfect fit and lockdown. I figured I must have just been tripping with the Elites because basically they are the same shoe, but a little bit better, right? I love the way the grey elite's look, so I went back and copped them in my true size. I still felt the regular ones had better fit and lockdown, though. Anyways, I wasn't expecting these to destroy my arches. I mean, I have over 20 pairs of sneakers. I've been playing basketball for 30 years. I have only had this problem with two pairs of sneakers in my whole life, so it's not like I have weird feet.

 

In comparison, I had my Jordan 28 SE in my bag as my backup and man, they fit like a glove, with perfect cushion, traction, lock down, and comfort. If I had kept wearing the KD 9 Elite, I would have messed up my feet, badly.

I agree. Not too big of a fan of the multi color used also. I do like the black sole and swoosh. Makes the back part more subtle looking.

I will pick them up only if I can use the rewards I have for them.

Stopped by Marshalls the other day and found these beauties for $72. I already have 2 pairs but for that price I couldn't say no to a 3rd. Still the best colorway of the 9s imo.

I miss balling in the KD 9s so much, waiting for a big price drop or a big sale before the KD10 launches to cop a replacement pair. Been balling in the Kobe 11s with the full length zoom Bron XI insole which isn't bad at all but nothing compares to the articulated full length zoom in the KD 9s tbh.

Elites have grown on me. Those are tempting.
