Drawing inspiration from the iconic Air Jordan 1, the Air Jordan 1 Mid features similar design elements as the original, but is updated with modern materials for a spin on the shoe that started an on-court sensation back in 1985. The Air Jordan 1 Mid is made with a combination of full-grain and nubuck leather materials with a perforated toe-box for a durable yet breathable fit. A protective rubber cupsole and Air-Sole® heel unit provide comfort and impact protection while a basketball-specific traction pattern covers the solid rubber outsole for court-inspired traction. The finishing touch is the coveted 'Air Jordan Wings' logo and Swoosh adorning the side panel. Mid. Wt. 14.6 oz.

Jordan Brand jumps into 2013 with the 9th chapter in the Melo saga. They envisioned a performance shoe with many layers that function individually but all work in harmony to create one holistic, strong fit. The end result is the Jordan Melo M9. Upper starts with a formfitting bootie that operates with interweaving layers of supportive synthetic materials and dynamic Flywire cables for maximum lockdown on all sides. Segmented heel, articulated crash zones, and shank support. Low-profile Zoom bag forefoot unit that extends out 1.5 millimeters to increase cushioning and responsiveness. Maximum-volume Zoom bag unit in the heel for impact protection and a solid rubber outsole for dependable on-court traction. Mid. Suggested for shooting guards, power forwards, and forwards. Wt. 14.2 oz.

Very comfortable, no break in time required. Great support, especially the foot lockdown with the innovative flywire. The cushioning is second to none - just outstanding. Fantastic grip, even on not so clean floors. I had no issue with ventilation. The patent leather toe cap will scuff kind of easily from hustle plays but they're for hooping in - do yourself a favour and get them. Oh yeah, the insole is glued down but they aren't heavily glued so no problem if you need to remove them to make way for orthotics!
Pros: breaks in easy, lightweight, cool colors, runs true to size, durable, good ankle support, good traction, comfortable
Cons: toe cap scuffs quite easily.

 adidas adiZero Rose 2.5 - Men's
adidas adiZero Rose 2.5 - Men's
The adidas adiZero Rose 2.5 basketball shoe is worn by Derrick Rose. Laser patterned upper features a SPRINTWEB overlay mid-panel that covers the inner mesh. SPRINTFRAME MONOCOQUE CHASSIS bonds the external heel counter with the asymmetrical TORSION® SYSTEM and allows for maximum weight savings, energy return and motion control. High grade, injection-molded EVA ensures the most lightweight midsole because of the consistent density. SPRINTFRAME chassis has a recess in the midfoot to house a miCoach Pacer unit. Asymmetrical midsole layout aligns with internal i beams. This angled geometry literally makes it harder to twist your ankle and easier to adapt to the ground. High traction rubber outsole features a multi-level cross section that increases surface area and helps limit dust build up. Removable insole. Wt. 11.7 oz.

These are a fantastic shoe at a great price. Light, GREAT support, comfortable, well designed shoes. The toe cap area will crease (noticeable after one game, albeit nothing major) but that isn't a biggie for me because whilst these look cool, I need them to function above all else. If creasing is a problem for you, I guess you could always try airing them out post game and then putting the toe stuffing back in to help remedy the creasing? Just ideas. I digress. I'm a 28 year old guard that is of quite solid build and I play a little SF as well so I chose these for that support, the light weight (because it all helps for us slightly heavier guys) and the traction. These were a dream. Exactly what I was after. I wore them around the house a little before playing in them (as you should) and it paid dividends. I couldn't be happier with their performance. I highly recommend them.
Pros: breaks in easy, lightweight, cool colors, good ankle support, breathable, good traction, comfortable

The Nike LeBron X basketball shoe commemorates the 10th anniversary of LeBron James' partnership with Nike Basketball. Performance synthetic and lightweight mesh upper. Tongue features molded diamond shapes that add comfort and protection. Full innersleeve made of foam backed textile. Signature details facets/diamond story for the tenth anniversary. Visible Zoom™ unit provides low-profile, maximum cushioning with a soft and responsive feel under the entire footbed. Lightweight, Injected Phylon™ midsole provides ultra-lightweight cushioning and comfort. This lightweight IP midsole is nearly one ounce lighter than the traditional Phylon™ midsole (in a men’s size 9). Faceted TPU wing offers lateral support and helps keep the foot over the footbed during quick cuts. Solid rubber outsole gives durability and traction on a variety of surfaces. Modified herringbone pattern enhances multidirectional traction. Window on the outsole lets you see the cushioning technology.
 

Insoles

Hi, can you please tell me if the insoles are removable in these? I need to be able to remove the insole so I can insert orthotics. Thanks.
