    These sit much lower to the ground than the 96 but you still have a nice bounce to the cushion setup. Materials are much nicer on this shoe and once on foot they feel very similar to the Air Jordan XIII… which is a great hoop shoe.

    The traction is straight beast. Nothing much more to say about it. Lace them up and play… that’s all you gotta worry about.
