Grip could be better
I've been using this product for close to 5 months now. The shoes took around 2-3 shooting sessions to break in.
I absolutely love how rock sturdy the shoe is when I cut and change direction. I've never rolled my ankle once (i have had a history of brittle ankles in the past).
I love the look of the shoe. Simple yet flashy.
Good Tongue cushioning
Great foot support from all sides
In short, your foot is safe in this shoe and there's no compromise in agility.
Cons(not really cons but more like places where the shoe can be better)
-The inner sole feels a tad bit hard but I've never really had foot, shin or leg pain.(so don't worry about the seemingly hard sole).The cushioning is decent.
The rubber sole provides excellent grip but it seems to be wearing out rather quicker than I had anticipated. I have been using the shoe on cement and wooden courts for mostly just halfcourt pickup games. It's nowhere close to the intensity of a full length full court game which is why I'm slightly surprised.
All in all, its a good pair of shoes. 4 stars
No advise needed. Amazing product.
Recommend to make light wieght
Best in class high ankles.
Using it as gym shoes and casual wear.
