I had too many black hoodies, didn't care, at least there's grey and white on there too, looks sick though regardless the color.

Real talk though, I've been hooping in my AS Kd's from this year alot and I get the "Bro you're really hooping in those?" like c'mon.
im more impressed by people who hoop in nice shoes.

im super impressed by people who hoop in jordans cause damn those are uncomfortable.
I love balling in my aj4 MBs, after cutting the heel tabs. I imagine the 3 wouldn't be bad either. 11s and 13s are comfy, no complaints.

If i had money i would ball in the Kobe's too but how does the low's work on the ankle?
I actually was real skeptical about that, being someone that has gotten chronic ankle injuries but after speaking to my sports physical therapist he explained to me that if the ankle is gonna roll its gonna roll, in high or low tops. the only difference is where its gonna sprain, high or low. If your ankle is gonna roll you want it to roll low, at the joint, not high. high ankle sprains take forever to heal. Ive been balling in some kobe 7's a ton lately and havent even felt nervous about an ankle sprain. the 8's are even better. If you tighten your ankles down high whether it be via ankle brace or tape the chances of that twist or turn injury moving up to the knee become higher. speaking from experience, coming off acl, lcl, and miniscus tears and surgery. just my two cents, do what works for you, hope it helps.

When I play on Sundays we run for like 3-4 hours. lol. We used to ball for 5-7 hours but getting lazy.
i think 4s would feel better but 11s feel like a rock

I'm probably late but isn't the crayola Kobe's really called the N7s/ Native American ?
this is not confirmed yet, it can still be called crayola kobe

there no N7 patch or anything to confirm yet.

I did it (like i always do) by just searching on my phone for 'Kobe' and clicking New Releases. I've had 100% success rate with it up until now. Stupid me had twitter alerts turned on when Nikestore tweets, do while I was hitting add to cart I had 6 texts and push notifications about the damn Nikestore tweets. Oh well... got them from OSLife (paid a bit more) but I have them nonetheless.

^^I like the Xmas better so I wouldn't do it, but it's all up to you man. I've never been a big fan of the Easters to begin with personally, so it was a pass today.

went to my local FTL in Honolulu...there was a small line.. about 15 people deep.  FTL employee said they had around 70 pairs. but for some reason they only released the easter kobes and lebron lows today... said next week they will do raffle for cocaine foams and KD aunt pearls. everyone that went in walked out with kobes...didnt see anyone get the bron bronz
