Well, no matter what shoes I've balled in the last few years, I also fall back to playing in 18s for a while. The 18s just have a great blend of cushioning, traction, and court feel. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a current shoe that performs and feels similar? I've tried out the 20s, 21s, 14s, LBJ3s, LBJ4s, and 2K5s in the last year and all are nice shoes, but not quite right. I'm thinking the XX2s might be it, but not sure since they are not out yet. How do the Kobe 1s and Melo 3s compare to the 18s? Anything else out there I should consider?
