Where does it say "positive feedback only". It's a message board. People discuss how they feel about topic.

...But bro, there's literally Nothing in this Thread to give Positive or Negative Feedback on, yet.😂😭😂😂😭😂

 

And then with the rhetoric of "basic & garbage like most of his line"... I don't think there's anything I'd even want to make a post on, let alone click into the thread, if I think MOST of whatever it is has been "garbage"...💩

I must agree with this assesment. He wore two really good hoop shoes with Adidas, Top Ten 2000, and what they are now calling the Crazy 8, both really good, durable and supportive shoes. But when he got to Nike, his shoes became flimsy and downright dangerous after the first two Nike Kobe sigs. I am not trying to play in some flimsy lows, and I do not care as to who does. All I know is that I wasn't going to risk it. After seeing pics of this last sig with the knit unraveling near the eyelets after a couple runs, no thank you. I need a shoe with good containment from the toes to my ankle, and Kobe's latest stuff does not offer that. His last few years in his shoes were ugly health wise, which had nothing to do with age. Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett did it right.

roll.gif. Do you honestly think his injuries were shoe related and not to age?

10's were amazing on the court.

I really wanted to like the 10s too. Great traction, supportive materials, and responsive cushion. I hated that the sole was so heavy tho. Felt off

There's nothing you wear that will protect you from injury. If it happens, it happens, not because you had some well crafted sneaker. I've never heard someone say man, these shoes prevented my ACL/MCL from tearing. To put it simpler terms, if you roll your ankle, you roll your ankle, ain't no high tops or low tops gonna prevent that.

You do have a point, but you are missing the actual real point. Risk, and that is the issue while wearing a shoe that does not fit you and your game properly, and then is poorly crafted. Why increase your chance at injury by wearing a poorly crafted, ill fitted shoe? Kobe's low cut line is just that, as they are not even as durable as much of Nike's tennis line.

Derrick Rose was too explosive for his own good. The amount of torque that he could generate is what truly did him in. Throw in the fact that he just landed awkwardly on his first injury and you become more prone to injury after a major injury will give you the reason why D. Rose is always hurt. 

 

Its important to have a shoe that fits you well but just because you have that doesnt mean your going to be injury free. Injuries happen and thats all there is to it.

Footwork and shoes designed for your style of play are essential to helping minimize the risk of injury.  I've tried many different shoes and it just happens to be that the Kobe line works best for me.  I've never rolled my ankle in all of the years of my playing.  I've landed on feet and come away injury free.  I've seen people roll their ankles about once a week and it's happened in many different shoes.  I mainly blame footwork but I have seen some repeat offenders.

There is some truth to want you are stating, inaccurate in application in regard to physiology and the breakdown in regard to recovery after athletic explosion, with the proof being played out in the Olympics right now. Derrick Rose's injuries were devastating no doubt, but ill fitting, poorly constructed shoes like those of Kobe's line are contraindicated to those who need better bio mechanical support. Steph Curry comes to mind here. He could never wear a shoe like that which Bryant wore and then got injured in, nor should he. It is good to see a player like him get the support that he needed so that he could have such a good run.

Its gonna be interesting to see what these kicks look like
post #83 of 2269
hooped in kobe's since elementary school and never once did I roll my ankle lol
post #84 of 2269
Hope the xii is something like this. Less tpu and a regular lunar midsole with heel zoom. Kobes line should debut an actual free sole on a shoe more like runner but with an outsole
post #85 of 2269
A Free Outsole?! roll.gif
post #86 of 2269
^^Ya. They usually only have a free midsole without a free outsole. The kobe x had a one piece sole with free midsole. Why are you so suprised both the 10 and the 11 had free midsoles in the forefoot
post #87 of 2269
i don't wanna be that guy to blame a shoe for an injury, but i think the 'free' outsole in the kobe 10 forefoot area did damage to my big toe. i remember going up for a layup and my big toe went too far back (too much flexibility there) as i went up.

i actually can't play in the 10 anymore, as much as i love the shoe, and as for the kobe 11, i need to use the full length zoom option with it or i'm in pain.

this happened in january and it still hasn't healed.

Should have started with the ZK1 as far as using Free Tech but by going by your illustration it seems that youre using the same splicing as Free Running as opposed to it being enclosed like the shoes you mentioned hence my laughter.

Do you remember the Huarache Free Basketball shoe?
post #89 of 2269
Kobe 3 had a free outsole and it was also incorporated in the Hirache 2K5 in the forefoot
post #90 of 2269
Ues i remembered the 2k5 after i posted. Underrated shoe. The kobe 3 didnt. It was all diamonds
