    I tried on the EMs and they were way too narrow for me so I never got a chance to hoop in them. Spent hundreds of hours in my XI Elite Lows and love playing in them. My favorite model to hoop in.

    Forefoot is so minimal and low to the ground on these. Was reminded a few weeks ago I took my elites out to play full court again.

    Played in my xi elites yesterday, forgot how much I love this shoe! Favorite kobe. Just wish the translucent traction was better. Are the solid outsole versions superior?

    Keep the XI thread alive :nthat:

    I've got frosty/clear outsoles, translucent outsoles, solids, glow in the dark, XDR.... I didn't find huge differences between all of them frankly. On a nit pick scale IMO the XDRs are the stiffest, followed by the GITD, then translucent, then solids. But in practice the difference is IMO negligible. The softer, the tackier. Ever so little.

    My $.02, FWIW, YMMV, etc...

    Sorry I have no clue I've never ordered them. Just have had it saved in my eBay forever.
