the Nike Air Zoom Generations work well for me... they are light and have good ventilation and can be found for a reasonable price on ebay

zoom kobe 1... its outsole is very durable for outdoor use

zoom kobe 2... has the most breathability

melo m3... lightest out of the 3 almost as light as the xiv

they've been having this conversation for a while now on another thread. Lebron IV's was one of the consensus best outdoor shoes. the main feature of all the shoes suggested is durability on the blacktop
I would suggest against the Kobe 1s. I balled 6 times on blacktop in these (black/white colorway), and the outsole wore down super-fast in the heel, to the point that the midsoles are showing (no outsole left). It depends on your playing style (I'm a 3-point gunner that slashes to the hoop to keep defenses honest) however. Just my 2 cents...

^^ COSIGN on that I have played in 3 pairs and now I'm on my 4. Great outdoor shoe!! My Kobe Strengths are holding up, but I have to play more games in them though.

I love the 20.5.5's for outdoor.

How are the Lebron III lows outdoor, anyone know?
i would highly recommend the Ultraflights and the AZKII Strengths

AND1's current lineup is also a pretty serious contender, their tech. isn't that bad either and the shoes are way cheaper compared to Nike. and they aren't like 80% crappier. just look at the AND1 thread in the Other Brands section of the forum and u can get an idea of what to buy
