when the kobe 6s came out i was still wearing the kobe 5s and i thought they were unbelievable! didnt like the looks of them, and after seeing Kobe sprain his ankle that badly against the Mavs in the playoffs last year i completely avoided it.
after experiencing discomfort in the KD4s and the Kobe 5s handed down to someone else, i ended up getting the 6s coz i havent tried these and the reviews on these made me wanted to find out if they were worth buying.
did not regret that decision at all.
within the first 3 hours i broke into the shoe and it fit like a glove when i first put it on. much better fit than the kobe 5 and slightly better traction. though its not as good as the conventional herringbone traction, its still decent like the KD4 thunderbolt traction. havent tried the kobe 7s or the kobe 7 elites so cant make a comparison there but one thing i can say is that the normal kobe 7s were really tight compared to the 6s.
breathability not excellent but still good, definately lighter than the 5s and 7s and provides awesome ankle support despite that ankle sprain suffered by kobe that gives you nightmares.
though its been about two or more years since they were released, definately worth getting your hands on a pair of these bad boys. if you're a kobe hater and want a low cut shoe then by KD 4s or Jordan CP3 V is a good choice or any other shoe thats not kobe branded
Pros: breaks in easy, lightweight, cool colors, durable, good ankle support, breathable, good traction, comfortable

these socks are definately worth getting if you play alot of basketball, any kind of sport or even for everyday use.
its cushioning is not as good as the nike elite basketball crew sock but still keeps your feet comfortable and prevents from any rubbing, blisters etc from some shoes like the Nike KD 4. ive experienced rubbing, blisters, redness etc from the KD 4s with a pair of nike dri fit socks & another random pair, but with the NBA socks & a random pair, no discomfort, redness whatsoever.
hasnt frayed or torn even with regular use and hasnt shrunk in the wash. definately keeps your feet warm and has a nice range of colours if you're really picky about colours.
definately worth getting more than one pair of these.
Pros: good cushioning, breathable, keeps your feet warm, wide range of colours, durable

i thought the standard nike dri fit socks were good until i decided to get a pair of the elite basketball crew socks. worn it regularly for basketball games and practices and they havent frayed or lost its stretchiness and havent shrunk in the wash after a few months or so.
they definately keep your feet warm, draw alot of moisture away from the foot and is definately breathable. the additional cushioning is very helpful, particularly wearing it with Nike KD 4s. had experienced rubbing and foot cramps/pain in the foot after playing for 3 hrs ++ even with 2 pairs of socks...but with these socks and another pair, didnt experience any discomfort, pain, blisters etc.
sizing is fine, just follow the measuring guide provided. alot of nice colours if you're really picky with the colour of your sock.
definately worth getting more than one pair of these and they will definately last you for quite a long time
Pros: good cushioning, breathable, keeps your feet warm, durable, wide range of colours

worn these for over a month just around the house coz its so cold in melbourne's winter, and it definately keeps your feet warm coz its thicker than the NBA or nike elite socks.
other than keeping your feet warm, it started to fray after one week and there was already a noticable hole in 1 of the socks. didnt end up wearing these for basketball coz they would fray even more.
if i bought another pair it could be a different story, but overall, its good for keeping your feet warm and thats about it. you're better off getting nike or NBA socks.
Pros: thick, keeps the feet warm
Cons: frays easily, non durable

by itself compared to the dri fit socks, these are a little bit better and a little bit thicker but still thin and great for everyday use but for sport or activity which requires alot of movement, you're better off wearing 2 pairs (such as 1 of these and another different pair or 2 pairs of these) to minimise soreness, blisters, rubbing against the shoe etc.
(bought the size 8-12 ones but they dont have anymore of them)
Pros: comfy, durable
Cons: thin, need 2 pairs to be comfy

by itself, these socks dont give you much cushioning and you're bound to end up with blisters and very sore feet, especially the rubbing against the shoes, but its great when you wear it with another pair of socks (like these or another different type/brand of sock). i was very skeptical to wearing 2 pairs of socks, but haven't got a blister since - for about a couple of years now. the sock itself is durable and comfortable and doesnt shrink in the wash. would definately get a few more pairs of these!
Pros: comfortable, durable
Cons: need to wear 2 pairs to be comfortable, thin

The low-cut version of the hyperdunk 2011s are just as impressive.
You can easily break into the shoe the first time you wear it and it provides awesome traction, ankle support and comfort. Though its a little bit pricy compared to the hyperfuse 2011 low & KD 4s, these are the best ouf of the three.
These are best suited for guards, then forwards, but alongside the hyperfuse 2011 lows & KD4s, these are good for point forwards too, but if you're a big man you're better off getting the mid cut of the hyperdunk 2011. Some guards feel that they need additional ankle support with these shoes, so wearing a brace is no big deal & wear them when trying them on before buying, and these fit true to size.
These or the PE versions of the hyperdunk 2011 lows are definately worth buying as it supports and locks down your entire foot whilst providing great cushioning with the heel & forefront zoom air units, and the laces doesnt dig in when you lace up REALLY tight and doesnt cause irritation
Pros: breaks in easy, lightweight, cool colors, good ankle support, good traction, comfortable

Good lockdown, ankle support and stability with the added adaptive fit concept with the strap providing extra support, comfort and lockdown. The added hyperfuse tech gives more support & breathability and keeps your foot secure for a low-cut shoe.
You will get discomfort and irritation in the forefoot & the toe box during the first month or so it but its bearable and theres minimal discomfort & irritation after you (finally) break into the shoe.
Nothing beats the herringbone traction but the thunderbolt design is much better compared to other non-traditional traction designs such as the Kobe V heartbeat, Kobe VI snakeskin and the Adidas Rose 2 lava patterns.
Its a good buy for mainly forwards then guards then centers for a low-cut shoe. These are worth the price or the hyperfuse 2011 low & hyperdunk 2011 low are very good buys for low cut shoes and are cheap & better overall compared to the Kobe VIIs.
Pros: durable, good ankle support, breathable, good traction, comfortable
Cons: does not break in quickly
