KICKS: BALL’N All Out Performance Review

The BALL’N All Out feature a new cushioning technology and an Air Jordan-esque design. But do they pass the test on the hardwood? CounterKicks definitely thinks so: “Best. Traction. Of the year. Cushioning is very interesting and definitely a reason to check these out. Yeah, yeah, I know – “It looks like the Air Jordan XI”. So it may, but tell me one thing – are there anymore truly original designs? I believe the shoe industry has now become like the movie industry – there are no more truly original films. Every design has been influenced and copied by every company at one time or another. Get over it and look at the shoe for what it is – a great performing, comfortable, and versatile shoe built for players who go All Out.”

    I don’t know if I would trust someone who thinks this shoe looks like the Air Jordan XI. Looks nothing like any Air Jordans. Looks more like a Under Armor design.

    If you know anything about how a shoe is built, the Ball’n line uses D3o, the best technology in the world. Nasa uses D3O, many FORTUNE 500 COMPANIES USE d3o. tHE SHOE HAS BEEN TESTED BY THE BEST AND everyone SAYS THE SAME THING”it is the Best shoe they have ever plyed in!

    I’m sorry but this shoe does not look like the Air Jordan XI!

    I really don’t think it does either, but by all message boards (I mean NiceKicks, Sole Collector, NikeTalk) that is all I heard and read. Think it is the combo of cool grey and patent that does it, along with the icey sole. As for not trusting someone who thinks that, I wrote the review. I nderstand if you DON’T trust me, but I have been doing this for a while now and my rep is good everywhere. And as for best traction – I stand by it. EVER. Better than Zoom BB, better than Kobe IV.
