Guess I just see it more like @Mastralf mentioned, and I'd consider colorways with both purple and gold/yellow to be "true" Laker colorways. I look at white, black, or grey as just neutral base colors for most shoes, and in those cases, the other colors on the shoe are what define its overall colorway to me.

If you're going very strictly off of the home/away jerseys, I guess you would only count colorways with purple/gold/white like you said, but the white just acts as a neutral color to me on the jerseys. Purple and gold are all I really think of when I think Laker colors, and to me they can be used with other neutral colors and still mean "Laker".

IMO it doesn't make sense to say "Laker Away" colorways from over the years aren't true Laker colorways because they had black or grey. Kobe and the team also wore them in away games, and Nike referred to them as Laker Away colorways.

But hey, that's just how I look at it. I could see it from your side too. Either way, I think we can agree that Nike hasn't dropped enough colorways with both purple and gold for Lakers fans since the 8s. Don't think they've released multiple colorways with both purple and gold since the 7s.

3 games in. I LOVE these shoes! After figuring out how to properly lace them (right foot) they feel even better. Grip is amazing & now I see what you all were talking about regarding real Zoom.

People are complaining about the Zoom in the Kobe A.D. I can actually feel the difference because I have both. Maybe I should've said full length Zoom.

Yea they say it's fake zoom. It's not fake, it's just a smaller bag than what were used to, but that also explains the lower price for A.D compared to elite NXT (along w/the flyknit and full upper )shroud on NXT.

I have the 11 & to me theNXT feels way better. 

post #2248 of 2849
try pulling out the insole on both and compare it, it should be pretty much the same

stating it's "way better" means it is far and above better and more comfortable and I just can't imagine the huge gap since the drop-in insoles are supposedly pretty much the same
post #2249 of 2849
My feet still hurt from hooping one time in the NXT... I'll give them another chance once the Pain goes away. Been hooping in my A.D.s and 11s instead.

Yea probably isn't much gap when it comes to comfort from the cushioning on your feet, the overall feel can be different though but not by much.
