    I love your reviews on performance shoes, but it might be a good idea to integrate a ranking system onto your website. No one will care if it is just text. That would be incredibly helpful in keeping track which shoe you or your fans think is the top performance shoe at the present.

      thanks for mentioning this as i would like to say still the top ranking basketball performance kick i can find in all history is the hyperdunk 2011 elite. now if dealing with those in stores. .you have a ocuple more choices. but even out of elite pairs. i wonder how the lebron x elite’s would compete against the hyperdunk 2011 elite ect..

    I agree on the ranking system, and I would also really appreciate it if you’d do a performance review on the jordan super fly. I am quite interested in those as my next basketball shoes, and I’d like to know how they perform.

      retro reeboks are a good way to go. shaqnosis (shaq), kamikaze (Shawn Kemp), or the question and answer series (Iverson). If you want nike then probably the air raid is the best. almost any retro shoe provided they have a strong and thick outsole and good cushion

      If they havent released, how am I supposed to get a pair to review? I’ll grab them as soon as I can once they hit retailers. Nike’s get releases at different times around the world so I can usually find a pair ‘early’ when compared to the US release date but adidas doesnt do that.

    Was just wondering. I know you have a top 10 list for the year, but a top 10 list of all time would be nice too. If you want to even get more detailed with this site, you can have categories like guards/forwards or comfortability/support/traction/etc.
    Just my dime.

    Thanks for your detailed reviews! Do you plan on reviewing the Nike Lunar Hypergamer Lows?  I know Lunarlon’s “newer” technology for bball shoes and our choices are limited to the ’12 Hyperdunks and Fly Wade 2’s but the Hypergamers also have Lunarlon, which I know you like. I’d be really interested in how they perform since you’re a guard. Deron Williams and Jeremy Lin are wearing them this season. They’re not the newest shoes out (early 2012) but I think they’d be good to review.

    Hi Nightwing,

    I have been following your reviews for a year and a half now. I really do appreciate the objective way you have been putting them out. I do have the same situation as one of your followers. I am in my mid 30s, still playing a lot, but with family and kids, cannot spend a lot on my kicks anymore. I ended up getting the hyperdunk 2011s and the fly wade 2 ev (just for the reason that they are a little wider). Also, I do see you have a few Filipino fans, so you do know how fanatical we get with basketball, even though we’re not that tall. Anyway, more power to you and your reviews. I am looking forward to your reviews coming up, particularly the M9.

      Lunar and zoom a very similar. They are both very low to the ground and responsive. BUT because
      the lunarlon is a foam it will eventually compress and feel like a rock while zoom will never do that. but if you are light on your feet you should have an issue with lunarlon. hope this helped.

    Yo nightwing, since you were looking at the adidas 2014 catalog, I checked out the Under Armour and Nike catalogs for 2014 winter, some cool team models coming up man, just google “Under Armour 2014 catalog” and “Nike 2014 catalog” and look for the winter basketball ones

    Remember that nano tech sample model?

    Well, UA’s newest team model is the Micro G clutchfit Drive ($124.99), which features a new tech called Clutchfit which is supposed to act as a “second skin” which they claim is very supportive, also includes the signature Micro G cushion and a sockliner. However, the catalog doesn’t specifically list a key feature in most premier performers, a TPU shank!!! It kinda looks like there is a build in plastic frame though

    Also there is the Anatomix 2 ($109.99), which is pretty much the same but a few tweaks aesthetically here and there. There’s the evo map, tpu shank, micro g, etc

    Then there is the Clutchfit Torch ($89.99), which is a combination of clutchfit and leather, pretty cool look. Also features the same Torch herringbone pattern, micro g, tpu shank, the bottom looks exactly the same as the Torch series

    Nike Catalog pages 37-38
    And for Nike, there’s pictures of the 2014 hyperdunk ($140), which pretty much looks like an amped up Hyper Quickness. Also listed, but no picture shown, is the Lebron Soldier 8 ($130), but pictures have already been leaked.

    With pictures, there’s the Jordan Prime.Fly Tech ($120), which looks like a typically non-numbered Jordan team shoe, a Lunar Hyperquickness TB ($110) which has Lunar in the name, but in the description has Phylon midsole with Forefoot zoom (kinda contradictory), and a new low team model called the Zoom Run The One ($100) which has a description of “sock-like fit” and forefoot zoom with Phylon midsole.

    Why are some new Adidas basketball shoes built differently, specifically the Rose 3, 4 and Crazy Light 2?

    The heel part of the shoes looks considerably different than any other basketball shoes. How the heel, the mid-sole/out-sole actually ends before/at the heel cup when other basketball shoes would extend further.

    Has anyone talked/thought about it?

    • June 5, 2014 at 1:29 am Miller

      Im no nightwing but the superfly 2 has a very very very aggressive traction pattern. This means it has great traction and grip but if you wear them outdoors they will get destroyed in a matter of hours. on the other hand the hyperdunk 2013 has a less aggressive traction pattern and would last much longer

    After I saw the First Impression of the Nike Hyperdunk 2014, which is the best between Nike Hyperdunk 2012, 2013 and 2014 ?? I recently planning to buy an Hyperdunk. At the first, after watching the review ’bout Hyperdunk 2012, I was planning to buy that one. But after watching the Hyperdunk 2013 review, I was like, “Oh well, I guess I’ll buy the 2013 ver.”.. But just then, I’ve watched the Hyperdunk 2014 1st impression, and got confused about which is better o.O

    Hi Nightwing, I have a bit of a situation with My shoes, I play every day and somedays have trainings that can last for 5 hours or more and can not find a pair of shoes that seem to last me more than a couple of weeks. I have recently tried the Jordan Cp3 7 ae and the D Rose 5 boost and they both seem to have issues with the layer above the sole that your foot sits on peeling up and having to be pulled off. I would love to find a pair that I can wear game after game and have no problem with, if you could please suggest a pair or two that you think would be durable and long lasting it would be greatly appreciated.
