Best Foot Forward: Fila 96
A big chunk of sneakers companies today don't use leather anymore in the shoes upper, as everyone is into the competition where they want to build a light shoe. I mean don't get me wrong, playing in a light shoe is good but for me I would choose comfort over weight.
This shoe reminds me of high school, the look being bulky and all. Back then, I prefer my shoe to be bulky since I was small and I want to get some advantage in height. Kids would just wear and play in their sneakers indoors and outdoors until the shoe breaks. Those were the days ;)
Upon quick inspection and wearing them on the store, I can feel a good step-in comfort inside. The only thing I am worried about is the traction patter as I hope they would cater most court types.
Here are some details I found on finishline.
