Just used these today. My first time actually using the Kobe 7’s. Thanks to my girlfriend<3, I was able to get these. I got these for around 100 brand new which is decent compared to how much it originally is. In my opinion, its probably one of the greatest shoes I’ve played in! It maybe the shoe that might bring me back to using Nike lol. Ive also got some KD III’s for 50 brand new that i just used last week and Ive got to say, Ive should of tried out Nike sooner. I was using Adidas Pro Model Series which in my opinion is one of the greatest basketball shoes Ive used. Anyways, the Kobe’s have decent ankle support and very good cushioning. Protective yet light which is what I’m looking for. Very good grip too! This was without using the “Supreme System”. I wanted a size bigger but they were out of stock. The KD’s i have to say are my least favorite. Good shoe, but not what I was looking for. Thought It’d be lighter but looks fooled me lol. Good cushioning but after a couple of pick up games in the gym, started to rub a lot. Shoes rub all the time but these shoes made it painful after awhile. Grip was great though. Overall great shoes but Id prefer the Kobe’s. And no, Kobe being my favorite player has nothing to do with it lol.
