Soo I said I wasn't gonna cop the sulfurs but I saw them at footlocker and once I tried them on it was too hard to pass up on em. Went with a 12 normally I'm a 12.5 or 13 and they fit perfect. I said I wouldn't get these but they were too nice and dude working gave me a bday discount no questions asked. These are fire can't wait to hoop in them

I went 12.5 with the VI and VII, they didn't make a 12.5 in the 8. Why did you go with 12 instead of 13?

I was really excited when I went to try these on..however..they did not have my true size (size 10)..so I tried the 10.5..was swimming in it..and then I tried the 9.5..it fit good..but my toes were at the very top but I walked in them for a few minutes and I was really amazed at the comfort of these..AND they blow the Kobe 7 outta the water in terms of comfort..there's no tightness on the sides as with the Kobe 7..and I have a feeling they won't need any break in time when wearin casually or on the b-ball court..love this shoe so far..but I am in the search for a size 10 since my footlocker sold out :smh:

I had heard these run a little big so I tried on a 13 initially and they were real long so I asked for a 12 and they for perfect. It was weird cause I've only bought 13s for Kobe's but the 12 is money.

And may I add that these surpass the Vs as far as initial impressions go. I'm gonna hoop tomorrow ill let y'all know how it goes!

Did they make these in a 15 ?? Tried my local FL, my local HOH, Eastbay and NDC. No luck. Everyone says they have up to a 14 :/

if eastbay doesnt/didnt have a 15, I seriously doubt it. Best bet would be to give nike cust service a call, and see if they can nike find you a pair... if they cant Id say youre out of luck.

Finally saw these in person yesterday. I am more than impressed and they feel and look way better in person. Quality is great and will be picking up a few pairs this year. Last year I was more into the lebron 9s but these 8s are much better than the lebron X thus far. The X is just a little heavy for my liking and I love that Kobes are always pushing forward with using new shoe technologies, in this case the engineered mesh.
