    I still stand by what I said seven years later. The VIII's were a great performance shoe but had ****ing hideous colorways.

    edit: i think i was referring to the vii's in that post. I don't recall, regardless the VII's were ****ing ugly as **** too.

    Iirc when they first came out they got trash reviews but people said after some break in they were good, I remember a couple folks for sure saying they needed extensive break in... I have enough hoop shoes and the silhouette didn’t move me or anything so it was an easy pass. I’m pretty sure I was stock locating a bunch of XIs from FTL when these were a thing anyway.

    I could be wrong but of all the ADs I think most people would say these (OG) are the worst to hoop in. This is just based off what I’ve heard/ read/ watched...

    Anyone hoop in all of them and care to rank? I’m interested to see what the Kobe loyalists have to say :nerd:

    Lol I have tried them all! 360s and OG ADs were the best for me... The OG ADs needed no break in time at all! I have over 15 pairs of them and they are some of my all-time favorite hooping shoes!
    Peeps were also hating on them bc they aren’t called the “Kobe 12s” lol

    Ok these are :pimp::pimp::pimp:

    I’m honestly surprised to hear you didn’t need any break in time. That’s cool you love them. I wasn’t really feeling them and the lackluster reviews made it an easy decision and I just stopped following them all together so I’ve never seen the ID heat, kinda glad I didn’t, probably saved myself some money :lol:

    When I hear extended break-in, for any new hoop shoe, it’s pretty much an auto pass.

    All that said, I’d love to see the rest of your ADs if you ever have time to post them :nthat:

    Anyone else kinda happy the UNDRFTD Kobe 4s are coming out the same day as the kobe fastfit? I feel like it'll take some attention away from the nxt ff (which is great since I feel like these are gonna be limited). I know they're not the greatest kobes, but that react midsole and the colors look nice on the black pair.

    AD Mid > AD > AD NXT...switch the last two around before the OG's broke in.

    Returned my NXT 360's before playing in them, didn't love the fit just walking around the house.

    Lol. If they didn’t fit my feet well, I’m pretty sure that I did the right thing. But if you have them and enjoyed then that’s great

    Exactly the reason why I don’t pay attention to reviews! I think I posted all of my OG AD IDs in here...

    You can look at my IG though... don’t wanna spam the thread again

    I wonder why Nike has phased out volt. It used to be their color

    For me, the first A.D. felt like an evolution of the X in so many ways and that was a very fun shoe to play in. I loved how it felt, how it played, etc.
