    Got these. I dunno.
    The side profile is great and they are obviously very comfortable but every time I look down at them I'm like "meh". They also look shit in shorts but I feel that way with about 90% of shoes.

    Boost BBall shoes are pretty damn good. I have the DRose6 and the boost, when contained properly, is amazing.

    I have a pair of CrazyLightBoost 2016 coming and I've heard nothing but great things about it. I haven't really heard much bad things about the current boost offerings (DRose7 and Crazy Explosive).

    With that said, I've only played in one so far and really liked it but I think I still prefer zoom air in terms of feeling and bounciness.

    I'll update the Adidas thread once I get a few runs in the Crazy Lights.

    thx. there's any Adidas thread here?

    I've always been a zoom air guy, but the first iteration of lunar in the kobe iv was my favorite cushioning. but it wasn't durable at all. I was curious if boost may be similar to that type of lunar cushioning.

    Funny enough, Kobe IV is still in my rotation today and they are holding up decently.

    It's really not the same as boost, lunar doesn't have the same bounce and and comfort. I do think boost is overall better than lunar, especially if done right. I say that because it depends how boost is executed, it can either be plush where if feels extra bouncy and you feel like you run faster and jump higher like the Crazy Explosives or something more close to the ground and feels a little less responsive on the Crazy Light Boosts, both will absorb your landing perfectly well but it depends on how you play.

    I heard the new crazy lights are amazing.

    Also, check into Brandblack, they can be had for cheap and the shoes feel great.

    Under Armour too.

    re: site layout - capsuletoronto seems like a complete rip of havenshop.
