The Kobe VI's are very comfortable and once the insole molds to your foot they are amazing. Very lightweight, and no break in period at all. However the grip on these is terrible on average floors I slip and slide all over and on good floors the grip is still not up to par. I am a point guard and i drive, cut, and change direction a lot. But doing so was nearly impossible in these shoes. Unless you play on premier courts, I would not recommend these.
Pros: breaks in easy, lightweight, doesn't crease, durable, breathable, comfortable
Cons: poor traction, terrible traction

I just recently bought these ( Russell Westbrook PE ) and I am extremely happy with them. The traction is amazing, by far the best in any basketball shoes I've had. The ankle support is good, and there is a very brief break in period. Even though they are 12.4 oz. they feel just as light as my old Kobe VI's ( 10.8 oz. ). I have only been playing with them for a week but, there are no creases soo far. Overall a great shoe, I would buy again and I look forward to the 2012's.
Pros: breaks in easy, lightweight, doesn't crease, cool colors, breathable, good traction, comfortable
Cons: none yet

 Nike Kobe VII Supreme - Men's
Nike Kobe VII Supreme - Men's
The Nike Zoom Kobe VII Supreme basketball shoe features a highly durable, cast polyurethane shell upper that provides durability and a performance fit. Mesh placed under the shell adds ventilation and a graphic pattern that tells the predator story. Next-generation Flywire technology offers lightweight support and lockdown. 3-D heel clip made of injected TPU is molded closer to the midfoot to enhance stability and add a lockdown fit. Exposed, glass-reinforced carbon shank plate adds torsional rigidity and midfoot support during quick cuts and jumps. Two interchangeable drop-in midsoles allow you to customize the shoe based on performance needs: Attack Fast insert is made of Phylon™ with Nike Zoom™ units in the heel and forefoot delivers a lightweight, responsive ride that's built for speed. Attack Strong insert is made of Cushlon and provides cushioning for optimal comfort during intense, physical play. It is surrounded by an engineered sensory cuff that adds support around the foot and ankle. Solid rubber outsole with triangular traction pattern and strategically placed, high-wrapping lateral outriggers provides lateral stability and performance enhancing grip in a lightweight form. Flex grooves allow the shoe to move naturally with the foot for enhanced articulation and flexibility. Weights: Shoe with Low Midsole = 13.3 oz., shoe with Mid Midsole = 13.9 oz.

I was very disappointed in this shoe. The attack fast insole is hard and uncomfortable while the attack strong is squishy and feels like my feet are moving around when I wear them. The attack fast/ attack strong graphic on the insole came off on my socks after 1 use which was disappointing but not as big of a deal as my other complaints. As far as traction it is average ( much better than Kobe VI ) but certainly not as good as the Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 or the D Rose 2.0. The ankle strap does little as far as ankle support and is pretty much worthless as it also ripped my Elite Socks. I would not recommend these and I hope Nike puts more thought and effort into the Kobe VIII
Pros: easy to clean, average traction
Cons: uncomfortable, creases easily, non-durable, not enough colors, does not break in quickly
