    "I bought this as a gift for my son's birthday last month. He really liked it but the issue he has with it is the velcro keeps getting undone, which throws his game off. Other than that he says the shoe fits really well and the cushioning really softens his landing. "

    "I ordered this shoe online so I was able to customize its color (hot pink) which is great. The problem I've had with it is that it was too narrow. The length was fine, but I have duck feet, so I guess it's my fault. 😂 Anyway the longer I wore it the wider it got so now they're really comfortable. "

    "Probably the best shoes to purchase for point guards. I'm quite fast on the court and I have to say these shoes keep up. I've had them for almost a year and they haven't worn out in the slightest."

    "I'm a little underwhelmed with these. Sure, they look great, but honestly, my old sneakers (Air Max) had a similar performance for a lot less money. They're perfectly fine shoes. I just think for the price point they could have been a lot better. "
