    Picked these up earlier today...

    Reminds me of the Harden Vol.3’s, maybe a little more padding/better fit in the ankle area. Will probably break em out later this week to see how they perform on the court.

    Found these at an Adidas store...Glendale, Ca

    The fit is A-1! Went down 1/2 size, standard for me with all Adidas shoes. They are super comfortable...the materials are soft but supportive, the Boost is plush but not mushy feeling. Think Harden Vol 3 but better ankle support and slightly better cushioning

    since the 3stripes been using these as inspiration and they're probably working on integrating the boost with the kobe1s
    (also looking for a reason to post these pics)

    pretty sure the crazy 2s came back unless you meant the ones that were fully covered where you couldn't see the laces or maybe the didn't have laces at all

    second one was terrible, i actually like the first one, they were super sleek and futuristic at the time, i got the retro for like $25 about 2 years ago and i wish they removes some padding because they do feel clunky these days

    I was never a fan, especially back when the came out. Yeah it did look futuristic but i believe it was the deciding factor for kobe to leave for nike.

    Those were terrible when they launched and are still terrible. I remember people saying the silver ones looked like toasters. Adding boost wouldn't save them...

    i am not sure if it was the rape case but it seemed like kobe wanted to wear nikes and once his contract was up he just wanted to move(?) but i am not 100% sure on that

    but if it was any shoe it was the kobe2, the follow up which was a big wtf of a shoe :lol:

    one of my all time favorite shoes. the fact that it went from sketch to production is beyond me. for a top athlete to have a shoe that looks like that is unbelievable. still have a DS pair that will never leave my collection.

    then you have the Kobe 3 samples...

    Hmm even adidas skateboarding implementing boost into their footwear better than adidas basketball.
