Good Jacket for 55° and Up

This product is primarily used/worn for:casual wear
This jacket is pretty stylish for NFL fans. The pockets are pretty decent. Jacket is reversible but honestly, only one side of the jacket looks good (the non puffy looking side). This jacket is a great way to rep your team.
However, I would not recommend using this jacket for cold weather or anything colder than 50-55°. This jacket is thin and honestly will leave you freezing in the cold if you try using it for cold weather. If it's windy outside, stay clear of this because you will feel the wind.This jacket should cost $120 max.
Pros: stylish, comfortable
Cons: not very warm, too expensive for a light jacket, not windproof

I bought these so I could stop taping my ankles before games. These are excellent compression and you'll have to break them in as they feel uncomfortable at first. The fit is excellent without any extra parts moving. The TPU (hard plastic) plate at the outside of the foot offers good support against sprains and rolls. I recommend this product to basketball players who don't want to tape their ankles and to those who are looking to prevent injury but at the same time not being restricted. If you are injured, don't use this as it doesn't provide enough protection.
Pros: high performance, durable, comfortable

I enjoy the outdoor a lot during the winter. I play football and go for long runs in the winter. The compression is very good on these. These are warm but I would put pants over these because they aren't that warm. These are pretty durable as well. The only pet-peeve is that the moisture wicking wasn't as good as other Nike Products.
Pros: durable, comfortable, warm

This shoe is absolutely great for guards, forwards and centers alike. The shoe has great cushioning. It has great lockdown with the 3 stripes on the side that are embedded into the lacing system. There is great ankle support as well. The only downfall is that the shoe does not breathe at all, leaving your feet sweaty and musty.
Pros: lightweight, durable, good ankle support, good traction, comfortable

Good Basketball Sock but not the Best

I bought these for basketball use and I was pleased but expected more. These socks are breathable (more breathable than the elite socks). These socks offer some compression but not enough as I bought the smaller size and still had bunching up in the front and got blisters from this. The padding is good and in the right areas. Overall, the Nike Elite sock has better padding, better compression, better fit but the Adidas SpeedCrew has better ventilation.
Pros: lightweight, good cushioning, breathable
Cons: poor fit, not enough compression

This is an average basketball especially for outdoors use. The traction dies out pretty quick outdoors if you play hard like me. The ball has an backward bounce of the rim. I will be going back to spalding/wilson.

I bought these shorts because I was constantly getting kneed in the thigh and those who play basketball know that once you get hit there, your pretty much finished for that game. These shorts offer really good compression(almost too good) with the plastic bands. The padding is great and covers the whole thigh. I had a problem with the McDavid shorts and other similar padded shorts because it would cover the front of the thigh but not the sides. These are excellent compression shorts to wear for basketball if you take a lot of contact or just want protection for thigh bruises.
Pros: high performance, lightweight, durable, comfortable, good moisture wicking, breathable, great padding, good coverage
Cons: cannot put in dryer

I bought these for running and I loved these. The cushioning on these are good but could be better. The fit was excellent and no slippage on the heel. I wish the laces were a little thicker. The breathability on these was like no other sneaker in the world. I felt heat escaping at every angle and I enjoyed have my feet breathe so freely. I highly recommend this shoe for runners who don't need that much cushioning and are looking for a breathable sneaker.
Warning don't wear this in the rain or near water as it will soak through.

Cons: laces are cheap

 adidas Rose 3.0 - Men's
adidas Rose 3.0 - Men's
The adidas Rose 3.0 basketball shoe is inspired by Derrick’s humble roots and exciting play. The Rose logo features three petals that revolve around a subtle letter "D" and number "1" in the center. The petal’s sharp edges represent his speed and agility on the court and each one is unique to pay homage to the creative cuts, slashes and shots he makes on the court. The petals also symbolize the foundation that brought Derrick from the playgrounds of Englewood to NBA superstardom - his mother, Brenda, in the center, and his brothers Allen, Reggie and Duane as support. Just as sharp, crafted and lethal as D-Rose's game, these shoes are what separates an MVP from the others. Synthetic leather upper provides optimal light weight and durability and incorporates a unique Sting Ray emboss pattern tying back to the stingray leather used on real katana swords; the preferred weapon of the legendary Samurai warrior. SPRINTFRAME construction provides stability and speed through geometrical research to create a lightweight and supportive basketball chassis. Breathable sandwich mesh tongue incorporates a 3M reflective Black Rose logo while the back details the Rose Family tree with a Chicago word mark. Molded EVA collar adds increased ankle lock down. High rebounding injected EVA midsole offers longer resiliency and response over time. More EVA through the midfoot delivers stronger torsional and midfoot stiffness for side-to-side cuts. PU sockliner brings added cushion and breathability. Non-marking rubber outsole with increased ground contact and enhanced traction gives ultimate grip. miCoach compatible. Wt. 12.6 oz.
 

why are the electricy/sliver/black version more expensive

do they come with anything special?
It has nothing to do with the demand at all.
The upper of the electricity colorway is made of a similar fabric used in the uniforms of the firefighters in chicago. The material is very durable and fire resistant in the firefighters uniform. The shoe is made of a lighter and less rugged material. It has a rougher texture and will be more durable on the court and off the court for casual use. I wouldn't test it for its fire resistant properties. The price difference is for the different material used in the upper which makes the shoe much more durable.
