@Nike Kobe AD. These are showing up at Canadian outlets for $120 CAD plus whatever discount they’re having that week. I saw the same pair in Seattle for $80 USD plus another 30%. There was some hype when these shoes came out because they have a nice aesthetic. I especially like this colorway because you can’t go wrong with a gum outsole. Unfortunately the upper is made of a suede-like material which isn’t great for basketball. It doesn’t breathe and there are other materials that could’ve provided the same level of support. When I tried them on the upper felt thin and stiff while the cushioning was very firm. They wouldn’t be bad if the regular price was $120 but the original price was $200. The next shoe in the Kobe line is supposed to incorporate a lot of new tech so I would wait for those. . . . . . #dixknowskix #sneakerfiend #sneakersteals #kobead #nikebasketball #nike #igkicks #sneakercommunity #sneakeraddiciton #sneakergame #sneakerfam #shoeoftheday #performancereview #weartesters #kobemid
@Adidas Ultraboost ST. Still the best running and recovery shoes I own. I’ve put more kms on these shoes than any shoe I can remember and they still look and feel great. Adidas made a smart decision to use continental rubber (yes, the tire company) on the outsole to preserve traction. Boost cushioning is still extremely bouncy and it’s hard for me to pick another shoe when I’m looking for a casual pair to wear. If you’re on the fence, I’d say try on a pair especially now that the hype has died and most Ultraboost are eligible for discount codes and sales. . . . . . #dixknowskix #sneakerfiend #sneakersteals #boostislife #adidasrunning #adidas #igkicks #sneakercommunity #sneakeraddiciton #sneakergame #sneakerfam #shoeoftheday #performancereview #weartesters
@Adidas Ultraboost Clima. I told my wife during our wedding vows that I would stop hiding shoes from her... sorry babe 😅. She actually walked by me as I took this shot and she said “those shoes again?” Well they aren’t the same shoe even though they’re both dressed in black. The Ultraboost Clima is similar to regular Ultraboost except Adidas incorporated design elements that make them well-suited for warmer weather. I’ll post more about them later and compare them to my @Nike Vapormax but right now I just want to admire how beautiful both of these shoes look 😍. . . . . . #dixknowskix #sneakerfiend #sneakersteals #boostislife #adidasrunning #adidas #igkicks #sneakercommunity #sneakeraddiciton #sneakergame #sneakerfam #shoeoftheday #performancereview #weartesters #tripleblack #allblackeverything #nike #nikevapormax #flyknit #primeknit #headtohead #zaizai #threedoggyteers
@Adidas Drose 8. Final thoughts. Very solid shoe. The upper is made of a knitted material that feels plasticky. I wouldn’t have known it was knit if it weren’t for @weartesters. The shoe locks your foot in decently but it would’ve been better if the front portion wasn’t so wide. The second pic shows the air ventilation that was incorporated into the shoe which is really cool (pun intended). The last gym I played in was dusty and the court was made of a synthetic material. I was sliding everywhere and had to switch to my hyperdunks. This was disappointing as otherwise these shoes play great overall. . . . . . #dixknowskix #sneakerfiend #sneakersteals #boostislife #adidasbasketball #adidas #igkicks #sneakercommunity #sneakeraddiciton #sneakergame #sneakerfam #shoeoftheday #performancereview #weartesters #sneakersdaily
@Nike Zoom Fly. Misleading name as this specific model uses lunar foam cushioning. No zoom air cushioning whatsoever. There is a Zoom Fly elite model that uses ZoomX cushioning but those are very limited. This pair is a takedown model and can be purchased at outlets for $130 CAD. I found them to fit very narrow and the arch support feels prominent. You can see the significant width difference in the first pic when compared to my Ultraboost. The upper hugs your foot well and doesn’t have much padding. I was impressed with the design of the midsole as I did feel like I was being propelled forward after each step. The cushioning is firm but will likely feel more comfortable after break-in. I will be on the lookout for these once they get below $100. . . . . . #dixknowskix #sneakerfiend #sneakersteals #boostislife #zoomfly #adidasrunning #nikerunning #adidas #igkicks #sneakercommunity #sneakeraddiciton #sneakergame #sneakerfam #shoeoftheday #performancereview #weartesters #nike #ultraboostst
@Nike outlet finds from my Portland trip. The Kobe 8s were a youth size 6 but still crazy to find a deadstock pair. A definite cop if they were in my size. The Oregon Kobe ADs were pretty comfortable but they felt slightly tight and stiff. They were $109 plus 30% off. The last pair were the Kobe AD LA city editions. I was tempted to get these because they were only $80 plus 30% off but man they didn’t feel good on foot. They honestly felt cheap and the cushioning was nothing to get excited over. I’m actually shocked I left Portland without buying a single pair of shoes for myself. On the other hand I did get my girl some Paul George 2s to ball in to make up for it. . . . . . #dixknowskix #sneakerfiend #sneakersteals #kb8 #kb24 #nikebasketball #nike #igkicks #sneakercommunity #sneakeraddiciton #sneakergame #sneakerfam #shoeoftheday #performancereview #weartesters #mambamentality #kobead #kobe8 #outletfinds #paulgeorge #pg2
@Nike Employee Store. This was a cool experience I checked off my sneaker bucket list. I made the mistake of going on a Saturday so it was extremely busy and chaotic. I would recommend going in with tempered expectations. Whatever you find at a Niketown you’ll find here but with a discount. Don’t expect to get any of the popular Air Jordan, Flyknit trainer or Epic react models. A lot of those models are reserved for staff. Overall it was a fun experience but definitely go during a weekday. ‭. . . . . #dixknowskix #sneakerfiend #sneakersteals #nike #nikesportswear #nikerunning #nikebasketball #employeestore #igkicks #sneakercommunity #sneakeraddiciton #sneakergame #sneakerfam #shoeoftheday #performancereview #weartesters
@Nike Flyknit Racer Oreo. By far the most stylish and comfortable summer shoe. They’re super light, comfortable and have great airflow due to the Flyknit. #chillinwithmyhomie . . . . #dixknowskix #sneakerfiend #sneakersteals #flyknitracer #nikerunning #nike #igkicks #sneakercommunity #sneakeraddiciton #sneakergame #sneakerfam #shoeoftheday #performancereview #weartesters #oreo #summerkicks
@Adidas Drose 8. The traction on these shoes are solid. They aren’t the best out there but no real complaints so far. I wanted to highlight the beautiful gold shank plate. This plate does a great job of stabilizing your foot and providing support. It ensures your foot moves with the shoe and is aligned correctly so you aren’t putting too much pressure on your tendons. I appreciate how adidas used a shiny plastic material. The gold really pops. This is the best colorway of the Drose 8 IMO. . . . . . #dixknowskix #sneakerfiend #sneakersteals #boostislife #adidasbasketball #adidas #igkicks #sneakercommunity #sneakeraddiciton #sneakergame #sneakerfam #shoeoftheday #performancereview #weartesters #drose8
@Nike Hyperdunk 2017 #kayyow. The Richmond Nike outlet has been dry for months now. I don’t remember the last time they carried anything interesting. The only pair of note is this colorway of the #hyperdunk2017 that is helping to bring awareness to breast cancer. I’m glad wearing pink especially on shoes is now widely accepted. This pair would look great on the court and @nikebasketball did a good job of not making the pink overpowering. From what I’ve heard the shoes are decent except the “react” cushioning feels very firm. React foam is apparently implemented differently in running shoes and feels great so we’ll see how Nike uses it in the future. This pair was $120 CAD with an additional 20% off. . . . . . #dixknowskix #sneakerfiend #sneakersteals #nikehyperdunk #nikebasketball #nike #igkicks #sneakercommunity #sneakeraddiciton #sneakergame #sneakerfam #shoeoftheday #performancereview #weartesters #nikehyperdunk2017 #kayyow
@Adidas Drose 8. Played in these for the first time and the first thing that came to mind was smooth. The cushioning is softer than the #hardenvol2 but not as plush as the #crazyexplosive. It just felt easy to play in them. Another feature that I appreciated is the material and design of the upper. When you first feel it, the material feels plasticky and cheap.  Nothing compared to the knit materials on other performance models. But once you lace up you’ll realize the genius behind this design as it feels like you’re wearing an ankle brace. For some people this may be too restrictive but I loved it. So far so good. . . . . . #dixknowskix #sneakerfiend #sneakersteals #boostislife #adidashoops #adidas #igkicks #sneakercommunity #sneakeraddiciton #sneakergame #sneakerfam #shoeoftheday #performancereview #weartesters #drose8 #moltenbasketball #drose

@Nike Flyknit Trainer and Racer. When the lineup is long at @rainorshineyvr you take shoe pics to pass the time. . . . . . #dixknowskix #sneakerfiend #sneakersteals #nikeflyknittrainer #nikerunning #nike #igkicks #sneakercommunity #sneakeraddiciton #sneakergame #sneakerfam #shoeoftheday #performancereview #weartesters #nikeflyknitracer #oreo #yeknits
@Adidas Harden Volume 2. Last post about the Hardens, I promise. First, these are my go to workout shoes from now on. They are comfortable and super stable due to the wide outsole. Although I would opt for higher socks next time as the rubbery coating near the opening might be uncomfortable for some people. Second, even though the upper is soft and sock-like @adidashoops did an awesome job of reinforcing it with plastic coated strands. The strands discolour quite quickly from getting stepped on and toe drags but performance isn’t impacted. On to the next one. Looking forward to playing in the  #drose8 starting Monday. . . . . . #dixknowskix #sneakerfiend #sneakersteals #boostislife #adidasbasketball #adidas #igkicks #sneakercommunity #sneakeraddiciton #sneakergame #sneakerfam #shoeoftheday #performancereview #weartesters #adidashoops #hardenvol2 #fearthebeard #jamesharden
@Nike Air Jordan V - Wolf Grey. That grey nubuck upper is 🔥🔥🔥. I’m pretty sure it was @jumpman23 that started the cool grey trend. No other shoe brand does it like they do. I forgot how amazing these shoes look. You wouldn’t know they came out in 2011. A lot of people hate on some color ways that aren’t OG but how can you not love this pair. . . . . . #dixknowskix #sneakerfiend #sneakersteals #airjordan5 #jumpman #nike #igkicks #sneakercommunity #sneakeraddiciton #sneakergame #sneakerfam #shoeoftheday #performancereview #weartesters #airjordanv #airjordan #nikebasketball #wolfgrey5s #wolfgrey #tbt
@Nike Air Jordan V - Grape. One of my favourite shoes. As I’ve said before the V is my favourite silhouette and purple is my favourite color so this was a perfect match for me. It’s hard to remember a time when “knit” uppers weren’t the fad but wearing these I appreciate the durability, comfort and weather resistance of leather. When the next retro of this colorway comes out I’ll probably play ball in these and see how they perform. I wanna be I wanna be I wanna be like Mike @jumpman23 . . . . . #dixknowskix #sneakerfiend #sneakersteals #airjordan5 #jumpman #nike  #nikesportswear  #igkicks #sneakercommunity #sneakeraddiciton #sneakergame #sneakerfam #shoeoftheday #performancereview #weartesters #jordanretro #grapes #airjordan
@Adidas Harden Vol2. Court conditions definitely impact these shoes a lot. Traction suffers when even a little bit of dust is present. You need to wipe often. Other than that the shoes are good performers. They really lock your foot in and make you feel secure despite being a super low top. The boost is far from @ultraboost plushness but they get the job done. I never felt a jarring impact after a rebound. These shoes will stay in my rotation because I value good lockdown, impact protection and stability. I’m looking forward to what the Volume 3 will bring. Good job @adidashoops . . . . . #dixknowskix #sneakerfiend #sneakersteals #boostislife #adidashoops #adidas #igkicks #sneakercommunity #sneakeraddiciton #sneakergame #sneakerfam #shoeoftheday #performancereview #weartesters #hardenvol2 #harden #fearthebeard
@Nike Zoom Hyperrev 2016. This is a great looking shoe imo. I’m always fond of speckled soles. These came out as Nike continued the trend of minimalist uppers. The shoe felt super comfortable and flexible. Unfortunately the way the lacing was designed, I had a hard time getting the shoe to lock my ankles in. It always felt like that area was a bit loose and off. The big strap also had a bad habit of coming undone. I will say that the traction was on point and the cushioning was fun and bouncy. These were only about $45 CAD at the outlet. Totally worth it if you’re in need of a shoe that feels and plays well above it’s price. . . . . . #dixknowskix #sneakerfiend #sneakersteals #hyperrev2016 #nikebasketball #nike #igkicks #sneakercommunity #sneakeraddiciton #sneakergame #sneakerfam #shoeoftheday #performancereview #weartesters #nikezoom #outletfinds
@Nike Air Jordan V. I mentioned my love of Jordan 5s. They’re my favourite silhouette. I saw these at the outlet, too bad they only come in youth sizes. Before ultraboost and Yeezys people used to be hyped for Jordan’s. I for one like that Jordan’s are a little easier to get. The most popular colours (breds, spacejams, concords, shadows etc) still sell out almost immediately but most models are now accessible which isn’t a bad thing. If this colorway came out a few years ago in adult sizes I think it would’ve been a winner. . . . . . #dixknowskix #sneakerfiend #sneakersteals #jordanv #airjordan #nike #igkicks #sneakercommunity #sneakeraddiciton #sneakergame #sneakerfam #shoeoftheday #performancereview #weartesters
@Adidas Harden Volume 2. So far the fit has been solid. I’ve never played in a shoe that was cut this low. Luckily @adidashoops implemented the pegboard lacing system that was first introduced in the Damian Lillard 3. It gives the wearer the ability to customize their lacing set up so it maximizes support, fit and containment. I would recommend playing around with it to find the best fit for you. The design of the harden is deceptive in that it fits like a super low top since the padding doesn’t start at the top of the collar. You’ll need to make sure the lacing system pulls your ankle back and down and not just down so you’re secure. . . . . . #dixknowskix #sneakerfiend #sneakersteals #boostislife #adidashoops #adidas #igkicks #sneakercommunity #sneakeraddiciton #sneakergame #sneakerfam #shoeoftheday #performancereview #weartesters #adidasharden #jamesharden #thebeard
