how they fit? i see a pair of BB8005 at marshalls for 20 bucks they look and fit nice. just wondering how they are on the court.
New Balance BB901
IN A NUTSHELL: Roll-Royce luxury and performance at a Chevrolet price.
KEY TECH: N-ergy S.C. System (heel), Abzorb SBS (forefoot), dual-rubber outsole (combines solid rubber for durability and blown rubber for added cushioning), full-length Abzorb sockliner, Stability Web midfoot support structure, ultra-dense memory foam around ankle
USE/POSITION: Hoops, indoor & out/All
COLORWAY TESTED: White/Red, Black
TEAM COLORWAYS: Yes
PROS: Stiffness of upper means it can start out feeling a bit roomy, but both comfort and fit are excellent once the shoe is broken in; excellent impact protection front and rear with a wonderfully dense feel underfoot; great support over, around and under the midfoot; firm midsole and solid heel counter combine to deliver confidence inspiring stability; ultra-dense memory foam backing ankle feels great and enhances both heel fit and ankle support; excellent traction on black colorway; shoe feels bulletproof it should hold up very well over time; a lot of shoe for the money
CONS: Upper starts out stiff; traction on white-based colorways is very good on clean courts, but just okay on less than pristine surfacesTEAM WARRIORSAzubuike - Barnes - Biedrins - Cabarkapa - Davis - Ellis - FoyleHarrington - Jackson - Jasikevicius - O'Bryant - Pietrus - Powell - Richardson
