Runs true to size but wide footers might wanna go half size up. Recommend to try them on for yourself when in doubt.

Pretty comfortable and most importantly from my experience they don't make sound when I heel strike, which was a deal breaker for me on the IX and XI.

Might be a little high off the ground for those that like court feel.

Just grabbed a pair. They only had two of my size left. I asked to look at both pairs. They gave me only one pair, looked over it, saw some dents and dings in the Kobe logo at the tongue (no idea how that would happen), some writing on the edge of the sole (couldn't be rubbed off), also a dent in the middle of the toebox. asked for the 2nd pair and this one had none of those issues.

Even tho I wear all my shoes, I still want the mintiest pair of perfection.

I don't know if anyone has seen this but I work at footlocker and today I was selling someone a size 14 in the A.D. and the laces are thicker in the bigger sizes and thinner in the smaller sizes. The size 14 and really thick round laces and a 12 has a medium thickness and a 9 has thin laces

Up to you guys. If this thread gets more traffic I'll keep updating it throughout the life of this model. OP on the other thread said he's not gonna keep it updated let alone change the title.

These shoes definitely need to be re-laced. I'm a 10.5 normally for Jordans. I tried on sz 11, felt great in width, but the length was too much. 10.5 was great in length, but was too tight on my flat-footed feet. I had the shoes loosened by re-lacing and they fit fantastic now. Feels like the 8s more than 7s now.

So, any performance review yet? Wondering how it performs on court ..or is this more of a lifestyle shoe?

I wore them at niketown. They allowed me to wear them and use the small court they had on the walk to the dressing room. They are quite sticky. I did some bball drills.

Nice. How's the cushioning? compared to past kobe models

thapointguy: Thank you for posting that link. I was able to grab a pair after missing out in the am. Appreciate it.
post #16 of 60
I copped yesterday at Niketown in NYC, I usually wear a 12 but went up half a size because it felt really tight and felt great in a 12.5.

The cushioning feels great and if you look through the sole the zoom bag used in the heel looks pretty damn thick (someone correct me if I'm wrong on what I'm seeing) so I'm looking forward to trying these out on court. I never owned any pair of the 11s but these feel really light on foot. Forefoot cushioning seems okay at first impression and traction seemed amazing. I hope the translucent sole won't cake on dust but at first they feel great.

Will post a detailed review after a weekend of hoops this weekend for my peoples!

So they renamed the thread to link to this? Why not just change the name of the thread and keep it going?

Looking forward to see what kind of colorways Nike tries out with these. I really like the silhouette.

Footlocker sold out of all sizes above 9?

I knew nikesf had only 3 size runs and NDC sold out quick.

But who else surprised by this? I am a little.

Just got mine in. They fit pretty well right out of the box and I went TTS with a somewhat wide foot. I imagine if they break in they'll fit even nicer

They did the same thing with the new kd9s when they came out. There will be a restock... I'm just going to ID a pair in the mean time

I kinda thought this release was going to be in short supply when FL put these on their 'Launch Locater.'  The ADs are still up there.  It may look like they released in a lot of locations, but they didn't.

 

Example:

In my area (a major metro), last weekend's Jordan 9 'Kobe' was available at 11 locations.

The Kobe AD was at 5 locations, and most, if not all are HOH.

 

Then I called my friend who works at a location; they said they only had about 2 size runs.

 

So many 11 EMs (same kinda price point) have, and still are just collecting dust/wasting space, this doses't shock me.  I'm confident there will be restocks.

I actually don't really care if it restocks. It seems like people who really wanted them got them.

Especially since I think these are still sitting in certain HOH.

Got mine at HOH today!!!
post #28 of 60
Here are the pics I took yesterday. I posted them in the now closed Kobe AD thread.









I hooped in mine this morning and I gotta say that they are pretty good. They have the same type of traction like the Kobe Xs so the shallow grooves in the forefoot will pick up dust, but the heel traction is opened up a little more so the traction on that end isn't too bad. A couple wipes after every 3-4 plays will be fine. The cushion does soften up after about 2 games, I don't know how long it will take for others since everyone's play style is different, but for me it took about 2 games. The mesh upper does a pretty good job with loosening up after a bit so it becomes pretty pliable after a while. Breathability isn't too bad, but I'm sure when a FK version comes out, it should be better. IMO, you sit a little higher than usual. So if you are looking for that court feel, these might not be the best option for you, but if you don't mind sacrificing court feel for a little more comfort, you should be fine. If I was to compare these to another Kobe, performance wise, these will be pretty close to the Xs.

For those with wide feet, go up half a size. For everyone else, go TTS.
