I haven't played in them yet. Just from trying them out, these are definitely comfortable, they are built well with premium materials. Support is good, real carbon fiber shank should be able to protect the arch. Cushioning is surprisingly soft, I thought it was going to be firm as my turningpoints 001, but I was wrong. The weight is average, these are not in the Kobe/Crazy Light category for sure. However, on feet, the weight is not felt that much. This is a great start by Wade and Li-ning. If only they were easier to get.
