The player must decide on the shoe. The Lebron 8 are extremely comfortable and only weight 16.2 oz. If you are concerned about a light shoe, the Kobe VI are only 10.2 oz but lack in ankle support. The Reebok Zig are about 12 oz. It is all up to the player if they are worthy of your game! You can always try them on and send them back.
