I found these on a great sale, so I bought one pair, not knowing what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised when I wore these for the first time, because they are, first of all, extremely comfortable. These are shorts that you could almost use to replace regular boxers. They also wick sweat away from the body, helping keep you cool. The compression fit works well with basketball uniforms, which is the sport that I use these for. Highly recommended!
Pros: high performance, lightweight, durable, comfortable, good moisture wicking, breathable

I got these to replace some relatively new Under Armour shoes that had totally failed me. Prior to those I has to adidas Clima360 Lows which were good, but not great. These were on sale so I picked them up, and was extremely pleased. They have great ankle support which is a must for me. They're not extremely light, weighing in at about 14 ounces, but for a post, that's not a big deal. Another great thing is the traction. The Under Armour shoes has pathetic traction, I was having to rub the soles with my hands multiple times throughout practice to get any semblance of grip. The Howards have a much better grip pattern. The build quality is superb, it really feels solid on your feet. The lockdown is great, and your feet will feel very stable. Overall, I would recommend this shoe to anyone who is looking for a post-specific shoe. These wouldn't have quite the same function for a guard as the would a power forward or center. Highly recommended!
Pros: breaks in easy, durable, good ankle support, good traction, easy to clean, comfortable
Cons: creases easily, not breathable
