 Jordan Air Jordan 2011 - Men's
Jordan Air Jordan 2011 - Men's
Read a performance review on Jordan 2011 shoes! The Air Jordan 2011 brings true innovation to the game of basketball, boasting a modular midsole system that allows athletes to customize the ride of their shoe based on their on-court (or off-court) performance needs. The look begins with a full-grain leather upper, which is detailed with laser etching and perforations for breathability and a visually appealing design that captures the essence of this innovative silhouette. The modular Phylon™ midsole creates two different options for cushioning: Zoom Air™ units in the heel and forefoot for optimal responsiveness with a midfoot shank for support, or encapsulated Air® units in the heel and forefoot for superior cushioning, supported by a midfoot shank. The look is finished off with an elephant-print rubber sole that offers multidirectional traction to meet the needs of your every move. Wt. 14.7 oz.

So I got these recently and wore them on the court tonight. DOPE traction, DOPE fit, DOPE cushioning. I'm heavy and tall and the cushioning was just so DOPE. I got the red ones and they look sick when they're on. I felt like I could jump higher too. Crazzzzzy!
A new classic. JB has really smashed this - in a good way!
Also, a bit wide, which is great for me!
Pros: good traction, lightweight, cool colors, durable, comfortable, good ankle support

Unstable?

I agree these look madness, but Kobe seems to have rolled his ankle at least twice in these this past season. Therefore they seem more unstable than the Kobe V's...
I can't remember Kobe rolling his ankle/s in the Vs.
Thoughts?
Pros: looks ugly (in a good way)
Cons: unstable

 Jordan AJ 2010 - Men's
Jordan AJ 2010 - Men's
Click here to read an in-depth review of this item on our blog! In celebration of the Jordan brand's 25th Anniversary, MJ has collaborated with shoe designers Tinker Hatfield and Mark Smith to create the newest addition to the Air Jordan collection: the Air Jordan 2010. According to MJ, "The Air Jordan 2010 marks the future of the Jordan Brand and proves there are no limits to what this Brand is capable of doing." The Air Jordan 2010 proves his point by not only paying homage to the brand's heritage, but also passing on the legacy to other Team Jordan athletes like Dwyane Wade, who will be the first to debut the 2010. Taking Jordan's "ability to see through his opponents" literally, Hatfield and Smith created the brand's first see-through basketball shoe, featuring a unique, transparent, perforated TPU window in the side. The 2010 isn't without plenty of high-performance features, either. The flexible leather and synthetic no-sew upper offers a more anatomical fit so players can sprint faster, with perforations that are engineered to be both breathable and responsive while representing the iconic style of an Air Jordan. Modern players need to be faster at every position, and the AJ 2010 is built for speed with its lightweight performance design and lower profile for a more responsive shoe in tune with today's hyper-athletic players. Air Jordans have always reflected MJ's desire for a clean toe and natural movement, and the 2010 takes it a step further with basketball's first-ever unobstructed independent forefoot cover. The 2010's transparent signature window provides a sculpted fit and also reveals a hint of MJ's beloved Carolina Blue on the cushioned sockliner. The asymmetrical collar height provides better ankle support and also contains a separately molded, stitched-in unit that wraps around the ankle for a better fit. The mesh underlay beneath the forefoot cover lets toes move freely and breathe like never before, while the full-length Phylon™ midsole with Zoom Air™ units stacked in the heel adds a crucial layer of impact protection, borrowing from low-profile running shoe cushioning for better court feel. A little something extra was added to the midsole – a graphic that contains a special hidden message from MJ for those who are true to the game. The AJ 2010 is rounded off with a thinner rubber sole for an incredibly responsive ride, with certain colors featuring a clear sole to reveal the Zoom Air™ cushioning at the heart of the shoe. And just when you think it can't get any better, the Air Jordan 2010 continues Jordan's breakthrough in sustainability efforts by using a Considered Design, which avoids the use of harmful toxins and uses environmentally friendly materials. Wt. 16.8 oz.

Ankle protection

Does this shoe replace the need for wearing ankle guards?

I.e. is there enough ankle protection in these to not need to wear ankle straps/guards anymore?

 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.
 

Are these suitable for heavy power forwards/centers?

Hi there
I play Center/Power forward, and weigh 245lbs. Are these shoes suitable, or are they more for Guards?

the good size

i try the nike lebron 9 in france.
usually my shoe size is 10, but when I tried the model it was a little
bit smaller. i have to take 10.5.
the sizes are the same in france and the United states?
Because on your site you say : true to size.
thank you.
Everyone I have heard speak about the size say that they run about half a size small. I normally am a perfect size 13.5 but the 14.0 in these Lebrons is right. Eastbay should change the size and say that they run half a size small, and are normal width, possibly even a bit wide.
