 Nike Hyperdunk - Men's
Nike Hyperdunk - Men's
Elevating basketball performance to the next level, the Nike Hyperdunk is an innovative combination of advanced Flywire technology and a basketball-specific Lunarlon cushioning system. This light, more supportive, durable and breathable basketball shoe is expressly designed to meet the demands of elite basketball players worldwide. The upper features the most advanced version of Flywire, which uses high-strength cables for support and stability. These responsive cables are loose when at rest and dynamic in motion, tensing to help stabilize the foot. A synthetic heel clip enhances lockdown, as the engineered foam and mesh of the upper reduces weight while further increasing breathability, strength and durability. Simultaneously, the collar of the shoe wraps lower in the back and higher over the front, increasing flexibility and lateral stability in the heel and ankle. The open mesh tongue and full inner sleeve provide lightweight ventilation and a more secure, comfortable fit. Basketball-specific Lunarlon midsole supplies a soft, yet responsive foundation. Improving upon past models, there is additional foam in key areas, enhancing lateral stability and durability. A 3-D shaped, glass-reinforced, composite midfoot shank offers torsional rigidity and responsiveness. The solid rubber provides durability and traction on a variety of surfaces while a modified traction pattern and forefoot pivot circle enhance multi-direction grip. Moreover, a high-wrapping lateral outrigger provides reinforcement for hard cuts, providing players with the support they need for high performance. Wt. 12.4 oz.

The toe box is very tight in these shoes. I always wear a size 12 in Nike shoes and they normally fit perfect, but these shoes are way tighter and snug than other sneakers I have had. Also, the shoes feel a little clunky. The Lunarlon is wide throughout the mid-foot. They don't feel like the normal, skinny Nike shoes that I am used to. It felt clunky and heavier than they really were. Overall a great shoe. It takes some time to get used to the squishiness of the Lunarlon in the heel. The traction was perfect. The synthetic used in the toe feels awesome.
Pros: doesn't crease, good traction, comfortable
Cons: gets dirty fast

If you are used to the original leather Spalding balls, it is going to take some time to get used to this ball. The overall quality of Spalding is still very good, but the material is much different. It is definitely more composite leather than prior balls. It is very durable and doesn't lose air but the new leather design was just to different for me.
Pros: high performance
Cons: different

These are the nicest shorts I have ever owned. The material is very comfortable and lightweight. I have had some shorts that are double layered which make them heavier, but that is not the case with these. They are one lightweight layer. I like the huge Jumpman logo on the side of the shorts. Jordan brand shorts are generally bigger than other brands so I would suggest ordering a size smaller than what you normally wear. I can't say whether they are durable or not because I haven't had them long enough to tell.
Pros: comfortable

I bought this shirt a few weeks ago and I absolutely love it. When I purchased it I only thought that there was the front graphic. I opened the package and found that there was a small Volcom logo on the back near the neck. There is another Volcom logo in the bottom of the right sleeve. The shirt itself is very comfortable. I had no problems wearing it all day. When you put it through the wash it will shrink about 2 inches in length.
Pros: stylish, comfortable, cool graphics
Cons: shrinks

I had seen these shoes being worn a handful of times and have wanted them for a long time. I just bought them for myself and was very excited. These shoes look awesome.
The first thing I notices when I put them on is that the toe box creases very easy. The crease, for me, was right along the end of the tongue where it says Jordan. The crease is not noticeable, but you feel it when you walk. Another thing you notice when you walk is the lack of a zoom bag. The sole is flimsy and bends when your heel hits the ground causing the upper to branch out.
The insole in the Jordan 1 Flight is very comfortable. Although, I do wish that the rubber sole was thicker or harder because I can feel everything that I walk on.
After a full day of walking at school and work I came home and took the shoes off and found that my sock was completely soaked with sweat. The thick tongue added to how warm the shoes are.
I purchases the Gray and Black colorway and found that the toe box gets dirty very easy. All I had to do was lick my thumb and wipe it clean.
I was surprise at how well the traction was on them. It grips well and you won't be sliding around on the court if you choose to play in these. I wouldn't recommend balling in these because there is not much for comfort beyond the insert.
Pros: cool colors, good traction, comfortable
Cons: gets dirty fast, creases easily, not breathable

These socks look sick. They are the most comfortable sock that I have ever bought. For the price, they better be. The only problem I had was that the sock makes my sneaker feel to tight. There is a break in the cushioning around the arch of your foot and can feel awkward when I tighten up my shoe.
Pros: good cushioning
Cons: tight

I bought these shoes at the beginning of my sophomore year for the upcoming basketball season. I first saw Kevin Durant wearing them in the Olympics and knew right away that I was going to buy them.
First, the traction on these is great. The traditional herringbone keeps you from sliding on the court. On dusty courts the traction would brake down and I would start to slip. When I would make hard cuts I would fall over. I had to continue wiping my sneakers to get traction.
Next, the hyperfuse upper is the technology of the future. My foot stays dry in every spot where it was placed. The shoe doesn't crease at all. The mid part of the shoe molds to your foot after a few times wearing them. You have no problem with breathablility in these shoes. There is basically a sock liner on the inside that adds even more comfort.
The lockdown on these shoes is great. I lace them up to the top eyelet, but if you like a looser feel you can lace them lower and your foot doesn't slip around. The cushioning around the ankle is extremely comfortable.
The one problem I had was some ripping around the ankle and near the outrigger. The material was pretty durable but near the end of the season you could see signs of wear and tear. Also, the part right below the ankle, where the mesh starts, sticks out. When you make certain cuts it would jab into my ankle.
Pros: lightweight, doesn't crease, good ankle support, breathable, comfortable
Cons: rips

I bought these shoes at the beginning of the school year. The year is half over and I am still receiving compliments on how they look. You can wear these with anything. Shorts, jeans, dress pants, they all look good. The one negative is that the toe box creases very easy, but I don't understand why that is a big deal. I use them in gym class too. A very functional shoe that looks good. Overall, a very clean shoe that goes with everything. You won't be disappointed.
Pros: cool colors, stylish
Cons: creases easily

I just bought this shoe for the upcoming basketball season. It is an awesome shoe. It is super lightweight and comfortable. My feet stay cool whenever I play in them and they have good traction. I thought the traction wouldn't be very good but it is actually really good for indoor courts.
The only bad thing about the Kobe VI is the heal cup. It doesn't lock in your foot like the Kobe V or IV. But overall it is a great shoe.
Pros: lightweight, breathable, good traction, comfortable
Cons: poor lockdown

 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.
