    How about one with normal colours?

    I hear the Roshe Trail's are pretty uncomfy, compared to the originals?

    Anyone pick up the Roshe Run Wovens yet? Really liking them in black and thinking of copping.

    They comfortable, but not like the regular low top ones. The ankle support makes them feel like your wearing boots as opposed to slippers.

    Kind of an odd question, but lately me (and a lot of my friends I've noticed) have made a switch to just playing basketball in Nike Frees if it's just casual basketball. I actually like hooping in my Free Run 2s more than my traditional basketball shoes, and I was wondering if anyone found a particular Nike Free to be a little better for basketball than another.

    I can't play ball in Free Runs, gave it a try and it just doesn't have enough upper support. I do too many sudden stops and pivots and quick lateral movement that I feel my foot would rip through the sides or my ankle will roll. Uppers is just too flimsy for my liking. If I am looking for a low-top basketball shoes, i'd play in Kobes. I want to try Nashes Hypergamer lows though.

    It's a great way to collect disability from the state once the inevitable serious ankle injury ensues

    +1 I feel like my ankle would roll if I tried any quick lateral movements in my Frees.
