    3AB7718B-42CA-4330-A789-E2455DB41B06.jpeg Haven’t seen a thread about this for a while. Had a nice little hoop sesh this morning and couldn’t decide what to run in. Went with the KD3 since it has been a while. Here’s my current rotation. What do you guys currently run in?? (Kyrie 4s and Kobe’s are currently getting the most run)

    Usually have 2 in the bag.

    KD 9 Elite / Lebron 15. The give my knees a rest combo.

    Kyrie 2 / KD 11. I'll start in the KD shooting around. If a game happens I'll switch to Kyrie. The KDs have been used for games but I go in eliminating any moves requiring hard plants or cuts.

    Why Not 1 Chaos / Kyrie 4. Just a pair of two shoes that have a well rounded game.

    29s are still my favorite pair for ball. Comfortable, flexible, great traction, just an all around great shoe

    XX9s are supposed to be like the GOAT aren’t they??? You have the mids/lows??

    XX9s are probably the GOAT. I switch out 2 pairs of mids, as well as the occasional Kobe 11 wear. Supposedly the XX9 lows are even better than the mids, but unfortunately I've never given them a shot.

    Depending on my competition, it’s with the Kobe 6’s or Lebron Solider 11’s.

    Only downfall of the KD 9 is that zoom bag popping. I personally love my pair. Still love that triple black pair and white USA pair but don’t need them. Haha. I’ve heard great things about the Protro 1.

    I was hooping in the KD 9-10’s... while comfortable, I could sometimes feel my foot rolling over the Zoom bags while making hard/Quick cuts.

    Harden Vol’ 1’s are probably the most underrated hooping shoe ever. They’re probably my favorite shoe to hoop in, ever. In my opinion they’re 10/10 in every category used to critique a hooping shoe.

    Kyrie IV’s are a decent hooping shoe, nothing groundbreaking though... they get the job done.

    Currently hooping in the AJ 33, again... nothing groundbreaking besides the wire mechanism used to tighten the shoe. Cushion is decent, traction is nice...

    I'm hooping in the PG 1, PG 2, D Rose 7 and occasionally XX9's. The PG 2 and D Rose 7 are my go to's tho.

    Harden V.3's almost nightly, with the occasional PG 2.5 and Kyrie 4 thrown in.

    Will probably mess with the kd12's and then Why not zero.2's when the lows drop in the summer.

    Nothing will beat the feeling of the XX8SE for me. I went to the XX9 for the softer upper and sacrificed some of the bounce. Still would take either one these days. Maybe I should pick up another pair to play in.

    - Jordan 32
    - Crazy Explosive 2017

    - Kobe 8 (lunar was completely worn out)

    Been going with these lately. Got the Lebron 10s out of storage last month.

    Also got the Rose 7s out of storage. Finally got around to wearing them today, but only for a quick shoot around.

    Moved to Vegas last summer. Had to store most of my collection at my moms house back in SoCal. So right now I’m only hooping in PG1 and PG2. Both are great performers. Recently just bought a pair of Kobe AD exodus. Love the fit and court feel. Zero break in time as well. Although traction can have you slip with explosives movements

    I really wish the Rose 7s worked out for me. Love the aethetics and tech of the shoe. Just didn't fit my foot well.
