    How are these for basketball? I've never owned a pair, but am interested in getting some iDs to play in.

    Also, I wear ASO ankle braces religiously, and am wondering if these will work with this shoe.

    Thanks!

    Should work well with ankle braces.

    I love mine for full court games, but make sure you get the right size. I went a half size down based on a friends advice, and while they're not too tight,my pinky toes get rubbed pretty hard by that midsole design.

    They have great heel-to-toe transition, that's my favorite part and why I like them for full court games. Great traction and responsiveness, you should beable to cut and stop on a dime.

    They're lightweight and pretty breathable. The only flaw for me is that midsole design that hurts my toe and the inner isn't as seamless as it couldbe.
