 Nike Kobe 8 System Sportpack - Men's
Nike Kobe 8 System Sportpack - Men's
Take your game to the next level with the Nike Kobe 8 System+ Sportpack. Enhance your game with a pair of Nike + compatible Kobe 8 System + basketball shoes and the Nike + E-Kit. This package has everything you need to track your play. Nike + compatible, the Nike Kobe 8 System + basketball shoe is designed to fit like an extension of Kobe’s foot for a quick first step. Embedded Nike+ Pressure Sensors and Nike+ Sport Sensors capture movement and performance information to help you track your game. Nike+ Sport Sensors sync with the Nike+ app on your mobile device so you can share and compare your stats. Engineered mesh upper provides a dynamic, ultra lightweight fit that moves with the foot and offers 360º of breathability. Phylon™ midsole delivers lightweight comfort and stability. Full-length Lunarlon midsole insert adds lightweight cushioning that sits lower internally to offer better stability. One-millimeter rubber outsole combines a classic herringbone pattern with a snake scale-inspired traction pattern. Uses less rubber than traditional outsoles for lightweight durability and excellent multi-surface traction. The 3-D anatomical heel counter provides a sleek, locked down fit. Wt. 9.6 oz.
 

Will these need an orthopedic drop in insole to put on top of the Midsole?

The Nike Air Max Hyperposite is the first Foamposite basketball shoe with 360 Max Air® cushioning. The Hyperfuse upper is a combination of PU-based Foamposite material, performance synthetic and mesh that creates a lightweight yet durable shoe. The strategically-placed Foamposite provides support for long-lasting wear and protection from the elements. One-piece textile composite tongue with half inner sleeve for a snug, comfortable fit. Cutouts on the midfoot expose the mesh for extra ventilation. An articulated collar also works to provide flexibility with lateral stability for the ankle and heel. The collar is also cushioned around the heel for added comfort. Inside, a full-length injected Phylon™ midsole gives a lightweight, comfortable ride. The basketball-specific Max Air® 360 unit increases stability. Data-informed foot mapping makes the outsole really shine, with more traction in high-contact areas but less in low-contact regions. This helps minimize the weight with maximized performance. The outrigger provides stability, especially during hard cuts and quick stops. Solid rubber provides durability and traction on a variety of surfaces. Wt. 16.9 oz.
 

So what is the weight in a size 9, and a size12?

 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.
 

Is it true that the translucent sole is much better?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but is the sole of the all-star colorway and the white/gray colorway of the rose 2.5 are translucent right? Does it have better and sticky traction compared to the solid soles of the other colorways?
I personally own the 'School of Hard Knocks' colorway, and the 'Allstar' colorway.

And I've have to say the grip on the Allstars ARE actually indeed a little stickier. Which surprised me at first.
