    So the kd 12 has full length zoom and an air sole unit for $150. The $25 more for these couldn't cover a met bag in the forefoot?

    Like i said before your paying for the “kobe” name not because it may or may not have decent tech in the shoe.

    8s were my favorites till my knees couldn’t handle bottoming out lunar. Copped the superhero 8s just for the forefront and heel zoom inserts so that’s allowed me to still play in some.

    Yeah, Nike's pricing on retro releases, especially sig-shoe retros, has zero to do with anything other than what the marketing department knows or at least thinks it can get away with due to the popularity of the shoe in question. If you think $175 for these is offensive because of the lack of tech in the sole, then by the same logic you should be really outraged by $190 for retro Jordan 4s LOL

  6. Same. Those were the only ones playable for me. I think the Black elite may have had cushlon or it could have been the "supernatural" colorway. I can't remember. I still have my superhero insoles and a full zoom set from the Kobe 11s.

    The 11’s were really comfy and these will be a lot better. I love the Kobe line but I need comfort.

    Very nice, but what is the public getting, besides full length zoom air?

    Nike and the rumor mill has been very quit on new colorways

    I'm so confused right now. The way you worded it sounds like we're getting full length zoom air. "What is the public getting, besides full length zoom air". Am I missing something here?

  22. Na the way you worded it , to me without looking in this thread every day, I thought that you meant future releases were to have FLZ

    I have a feeling that Nike isn't going to take this release seriously now, sending these straight to outlets due to the no zoom backlash. Retailers are not going to want them.
