i assume they're continuing with the kobe system by looking at the insole sleeve. very disappointed so far, hopefully the actual product would be way better since it is Kobe's old number

Look a little similar to the 7 but I like the changes, I didn't like the 6 or 7 really.
It's looking a lot like the vapor soccer cleats from a few years back.

if you noticed nike and other companies are shying away from making their basketball shoes wearable for everyday use... could be their getting tired of all the bad press and figured it was time to switch it up...back then it was no big deal but now with facebook and twitter a group of people can almost bring down a company in this day and age wit bad press which couldn't be done back in the day... i don't like them because of the sock lining...
