    Runs true to size but wide footers might wanna go half size up. Recommend to try them on for yourself when in doubt.

    Pretty comfortable and most importantly from my experience they don't make sound when I heel strike, which was a deal breaker for me on the IX and XI.

    Might be a little high off the ground for those that like court feel.

    Just grabbed a pair. They only had two of my size left. I asked to look at both pairs. They gave me only one pair, looked over it, saw some dents and dings in the Kobe logo at the tongue (no idea how that would happen), some writing on the edge of the sole (couldn't be rubbed off), also a dent in the middle of the toebox. asked for the 2nd pair and this one had none of those issues.

    Even tho I wear all my shoes, I still want the mintiest pair of perfection.

    I don't know if anyone has seen this but I work at footlocker and today I was selling someone a size 14 in the A.D. and the laces are thicker in the bigger sizes and thinner in the smaller sizes. The size 14 and really thick round laces and a 12 has a medium thickness and a 9 has thin laces

    Up to you guys. If this thread gets more traffic I'll keep updating it throughout the life of this model. OP on the other thread said he's not gonna keep it updated let alone change the title.

    These shoes definitely need to be re-laced. I'm a 10.5 normally for Jordans. I tried on sz 11, felt great in width, but the length was too much. 10.5 was great in length, but was too tight on my flat-footed feet. I had the shoes loosened by re-lacing and they fit fantastic now. Feels like the 8s more than 7s now.

    So, any performance review yet? Wondering how it performs on court ..or is this more of a lifestyle shoe?

    I wore them at niketown. They allowed me to wear them and use the small court they had on the walk to the dressing room. They are quite sticky. I did some bball drills.

    I copped yesterday at Niketown in NYC, I usually wear a 12 but went up half a size because it felt really tight and felt great in a 12.5.

    The cushioning feels great and if you look through the sole the zoom bag used in the heel looks pretty damn thick (someone correct me if I'm wrong on what I'm seeing) so I'm looking forward to trying these out on court. I never owned any pair of the 11s but these feel really light on foot. Forefoot cushioning seems okay at first impression and traction seemed amazing. I hope the translucent sole won't cake on dust but at first they feel great.

    Will post a detailed review after a weekend of hoops this weekend for my peoples!

    So they renamed the thread to link to this? Why not just change the name of the thread and keep it going?

    Looking forward to see what kind of colorways Nike tries out with these. I really like the silhouette.

    Footlocker sold out of all sizes above 9?

    I knew nikesf had only 3 size runs and NDC sold out quick.

    But who else surprised by this? I am a little.

    Just got mine in. They fit pretty well right out of the box and I went TTS with a somewhat wide foot. I imagine if they break in they'll fit even nicer
