    I still haven't come up on a pair of shoes that felt better or more comfortable than the xi's when playing ball. I had two pair of space jams andwould wear one for ball but wore them so much that I tore them up.
    I still got all the colorways but don't want to wear them for fear of ruining them but its like having a ferrari in the garage but you can't drive it.

    For some reason i felt like my Cool Greys felt better than my Breds when i balled in them, i dont know if anybody feels the same. It might have been thematerial. But I loved playin in my cool greys though. I gotta get another pair.

    space jams for some reason are way more comfy than the dmp 11s and they are lighter too

    ^

    that's cause of the production year.


    comparing dmps to sj and cg.. they definitely cheap out on the material these days.


    i miss the days when they made jordans for people to actually hoop in, not just wear casually.

    Yeah my Concords had terrible grip as well. I always felt the XI had a sloppy fit on the court. I don't think they had a heel counter. Also the tongueconstantly slide down on them.

    Truth about the DMPs. I wore mine for about 5-6 days of pickup and the carbon fiber cracked and the "patent leather" cracked on the sides where thetoes bend as well. On top of that the left shoe had a nasty seem that tore about my left pinkie toes.

    While the XIs look good, they suck for hoopin. There are a lot of shoes much better for playing. From the Jordan line XIV, XIII, XIX, XXI...

    The grip on my 11's sucked too at first. But after wearing them casually outdoors for a few weeks then using them indoors, the grip was awesome.
