I think these are the 2010 issue, so nothing spectacularly new about them, but having worn them a few times now, I thought I’d post a bit about them. I think I wore them once last season in the season finale before reverting back to my Kobe IV’s for the start of this season. They’re pretty much the same everything, height, weight, feel, comfort (especially now that I’ve gotten used to the Hyperfuse’s), so I’m pretty happy with them, I might switch back to the Kobe’s before the season is out, cos they still have a good sole or I might wear those on Wednesday’s when my Lebron’s wear out, though they are still going very strong as well. Anyways, this colourway is really cool, it even matches our uniform, I think I have pretty good lift in them, I went in for a layup and touched the rim (which is my excuse for missing it!) without actually trying to do that (I got the ball back to put it in anyway). The grip feels good and I reckon I move around the court pretty well, as well as I did before, although I could work on my defense a bit. I give these a thumbs up, and will probably continue to go with this line of low cuts at this weight, I don’t need even lighter shoes, these (and the Kobe’s) feel just right.
