Adidas design looked decent but their cushioning is not the best.

At least Nike has decent design too but their Air max cushion always makes choose Nike over Adidas 9 times out of 10.

Most players who endorse Adidas are injury prone, so it is a good thing that Kobe switched.

I have a few adidas shoes and the biggest issue with it is comfort particularly the width of the shoe. It's way too narrow. Most shoes are better than Adidas. Their designs/looks are cool but they aren't that comfortable to wear.

These were great shoes, maybe one of my favourites I ever owned.

I see people post this shoe from time to time in threads like this, and mention how sick it is or how much they like it....ummmm, why? That shoe is hideous.

Default Re: Remember the Kobe Adidas?

I remember a commercial playing during the 01 finals where Kobe lifted a shroud off the Kobe 2's and they show them for a split second before the commercial ended. I then begged from June til November to get a pair and spent all my birthday money on those boats. Walked out of Finish Line with a sparkly Adidas box and never felt more accomplished. Refs would make fun of me at the free throw line and asking me why I was wearing anvil's on my feet

Kobe's first Addidas shoe....really comfortable ..the inner sock was very ahead of it's time



Crazy 8's were a epic shoe at the time...





The Kobe I's took a more sleek/modern futuristic approach and were a amazing overall shoe



The II's were very similar to the I's...but with hidden laces...when you balled in them he foam on the sides would bendand rease very badly...poor design IMO but a very inovative shoe (look and tech wise)

simply put...the shoe was too ahead of it's time in design and function



Kobe switches to Nike.....

Kobe/Hurache 2K4..simply put....the greatest basketball shoe ever...

if you never owned a pair....you must find some...super lightweight...the ebst support I ever felt...the shoe is far and away the best functional basketball shoe ever.....too go along with bieng asthetically remarkable.



the 2K5's.....heavier then the 2K4's...and much Bulkier...a decent BBALL shoe...but nowhere near it's predessesor



Kobe 2006's....(81 shoe)

prolly one of he most comfortable kobe shoes ever...but poor design ruined it....too heavy/the top lace hole was sharp plastic???...mid top was too soft of a fabric...no support..had the cool contrastin stiching though



zoom Kobe 1's..I hated this shoe...the ahole rubbery/vinyl make up was just unomfortable to play in...it was a narrow shoe with bad traction also....ust never felt right.(Kobe's first shoe with written signature)



zoom Kobe2's....nike ****** down the house with this one....this shoe is top shelf design with supreme basketball comfort...a little on the heavy sie...but this shoe is tight. The yellow mid sole is cool with a unique design...the strap works well and the stitching makes a very asthetically pleasing shoe to look at.

must have this one...

Honestly when I buy basketball shoes, I also like to causally wear them when I go out. Some shoes are just hideous no matter what outfit you put on.
