This is the Nike Hyperflight. A shoe which I loved so much even though it is deemed as one of the worst basketball shoes Nike has manufactured. I had 6 pairs of this model and worn it over a span of almost 30 months. It is a very light shoe and I totally loved the loud colors.
Kobe IV "Carpe Diem" A rendition of the shoe with the tongue featuring the words Carpe Diem which means seize the day in Latin. Currently, the shoe I am using other than my Hyperdunk and another 2 pairs of Nike Basketball shoes. I love this colorway as it totally withstands the 'aggressive play' of my opponents stepping on them and all I need is to clean it with a wet tissue.
Kobe IV (WHITE/BLACK-VARSITY PURPLE) The more popular colorway among the people in Singapore and personally, I do like it more than the Kobe IV "Carpe Diem" too. However, this is just a normal release thus not much of a collection item.
The Nike Zoom Lebron VI “Chalk Edition” is inspired by LBJ’s ritual before every game when he walks to the scorer’s table and throws the chalk in the air, if you don’t know what I'm talking about, check out the Nike Basketball commercial; The “Chalk Edition” Zoom Lebron VI at YouTube. I'm glad I was able to get my hands on a pair of these kicks as there's only 30 pairs in Singapore while the other place where you can get them is Manila.

These are currently the 3 pairs of kicks I have bought recently and I am here to tell you that I am addicted to the Kobe IV. This will be the pair of shoes which I will be wearing to play for the whole of this year and even next. It is not only lighter than the Hyperflight which I am crazed about but also provides better cushioning and stability. æsthetics-wise it resembles a little of the Dunk thus it too can be used as my street shoe.
I've played in the Kobe IV and so far its all love for the shoe as I'm able to take quick cuts to the basket yet at the same time get those rebounds. It is indeed a responsive shoe that has great traction and doesn't trap the heat even though I was running and jumping for the whole of 2 hours under the hot Singapore sun. Can't wait for the all-star colorway. Hopefully Nike will sponsor me that shoe. Hahaha!~
Good Night and sweet dreams people. Gonna blog about the past week in the next post. Take Care!
Note :: Daniel, XM and Steve all bought the same shoe as Danny however they do not have the same shoes. Daniel and XM have the similar shoe but not Steve. So which shoe does Steve own? =]
