Hi's look like boxer's shoes. Nice C/ways though
Kobe said the inspiration for the silhouette came from him watching Manny Pacquiao train in the Philippines and the shoes he wore while training.

Glow in the dark sole.
I like how the Flyknit is used on this Model. Definitely scooping a pair.

ehhh not worth the price point for me to use casually. if i played ball then i would cop. i heard theres a lowtop version also coming out. 
Yes there is a low version but they use EM (engineered mesh) instead of flyknit

what exactly is the point of having the high top portion of the shoe? it looks too tall and clunky. 
its to protect the ankle and achilles while playing basketball. also for support during fast movements while playing
i've heard that the high top height of the shoe doesn't actually add ankle support, but rather the lockdown of the heel. like when i see these i just think back to the kobe 7 system with the inner sock thing. how much does it really protect?  
not sure but it looks comfy as fuck lol

This is true. One of the reasons why the KD VI is the top bball shoe for players this season. The shoe is lower than the Kobe 8, but because of it's near perfect lockdown you don't notice how low it is.

Dope. I just heard today that Nike might be working on a flyknit low model but nothing has been confirmed yet. Either way it's this c/w or the "all-stars" for me.

Don't know about the 2's but the 1's, racers, trainers, and chukkas feel awesome. I feel like I can use them for any kind of training. I've never used them for running even though I know they're running shoes. I'm scared to ruin the knitting lol

^ the knitting won't tear or show signs of tearing if thats what you're wondering. My buddies are runners and they even run trails in them. If you just can't justify running in $150 shoes then that's understandable, because I feel the same way.

^ LOL WHAT?! I bought Flyknit Trainers last year (my version didn't have the heel padding), and they're probably the best running shoe I've ever had. I think I've clocked in more than 600+ miles of just running and working out in the gym with them alone over the year. I would also use them to walk trails, travel, and just hang out. I've never had a problem with the material tearing at all.
The difference between all of them comes down to the fit and the sole. I have 2 different trainers (one with heel padding, and the original version without), racers, chukkas, and 1s. I'm going to wait on the 2's till I wear through my 1's and the price drops also.
Trainers: The GOAT out of all of them. If you can, find a pair without the heel padding. The new versions with the padding suck. It just feels unnatural. Trainers have this big heel to toe sole difference, but you get used to it quickly. No need to break them in at all, and they just fit and feel the best out of all of them.
Racers: Great for short summer runs. Suck on long distances and in the cold. Anything longer than 5 miles, my feet and knees start to hurt. The sole is thinner and more low to the ground. The upper is a lot thinner than the trainers also. They start to feel flimsy after a while, but it takes some getting used to. These are the ones I feel like would rip all the time, but they stand strong surprisingly.
1s: Takes some time breaking in the sole. Suits better to people with a little bit wider feet. You also feel more lifted and farther from the ground due to the sole. I'm still running in them right now, so I don't know how they hold up in durability.
Chukkas: they have the softest feel to them, but the upper is soft and thin, no padding at all. But I kind of like this, because it conforms to your foot more when you actually tie them up. They don't make for a running shoe, but it's great to wear them around when I'm hanging out or running errands around the city.
I'll try to post some pictures up some time.

Great summary. Yeah the version on the trainers I bought had the heel padding. I had to go up .5 because of it. I like how the Chukka's feel because they reach to my ankle and are snug.

Overall, Flyknits are great!

Nah it's flyknit. The only models that don't use flyknit are the EM lows. You can see the knitting is in the same pattern as the MP's just a different color.

I would have to agree about the heel padding, the original version without it is a must if you are going to run a lot. However if you want a casual flyknits id get a pair of trainers with the padding or some chukkas
