    if they want more sales, they should create a better logo.

    i doubt the logo is the problem. either they cost too much, or they don’t do what they’re supposed to do

    They look ugly! I think for the most part, players but shoes for comfort, practicality and style, not for some gimic. And $175 is way too high for such a repulsive looking shoe! They should have done some focus groups with ballers before they launched!

    I would buy these if they worked… Finally allow me to lay down some windmills haha

    They do what they are supposed to, the NBA ran studies, which is why they banned them, because they have a literal spring system in the shoes. I know that’s put me off buying them, didn’t want that sort of cheat.

    ^ Cool. Good to say that these aren’t a marketing ploy or something… I’ve heard of these before, but I had a similar mindset then as you have right now. Thus, I chose not to buy them.

    But if these make the difference between simple dunks and a windmill, I’d buy them in a minute.

    they don’t you get a 1 to 3 inch increase max with these shoes, maybe not any if your technique sucks.
