Nike Kobe 10 Performance Review

Most of my friends like the design of KOBE 10 and overall configuration, but I don’t like most of the colorways.

My feet are flat type. I have KOBE 10 and KOBE 11. The performance of KOBE 10 is normal, due to below reasons:

  1. The inner material is stiff. If I haven’t worn thick socks, the feeling is worse than Air Force 1.
  2. It needs times to break in the big air cushion of rear sole. I haven’t felt the feedback of Lunar till now.

But after one month (playing about 10 basketball games), I felt that Kobe 10 is customized for me.

  1. As a pair of low models, the anti-rollover performance is excellent. It’s also good looking. It’s quite stable when making some big movements.

Some guys think that the carbon plate is uncomfortable, but the stability is excellent. It’s worthy.

  1. One of the advertising stunts is the excellent traction performance. The feedback is great, not matter the urgent stop or starting.

I’m very satisfied at the excellent traction and anti-rollover performance.

But I’m unsatisfied at below 4 parts:

  1. The shoelaces are easy to loosen. It will affect the actual combat. Below fastening ways are very suitable for the eely shoelaces.
  2. As I mentioned, I can’t feel the feedback of Lunar cushion.
  3. The durability of outsole is not good. It’s unsuitable to play on cement basketball court.
  4. The comfort level is not good due to the stiff vamp and anti-rollover function. It needs to wear thick socks.
  5. The air permeability is bad. The ventilated holes are useless. But it’s waterproof.

For cushion performance, although the feedback of Lunar is bad, but the big ZOOM air cushion of rear sole is great. It’s different with the feedback of Boost, the feedback is excellent.

Comparing with other low type shoes, the supporting performance of KOBE 10 is good.

The starting speed of forefoot sole is fast. It’s very suitable to defenders. The traction performance is excellent, but the durability of outsole is not good, so it’s only suitable to playing indoor basketball court.

The center of gravity for anti-rollover is good. The anti-rollover design is great comparing with other low type shoes. It’s safe and the appearance is good looking.
