    I just got the Jordan 29s and they are the most comfortable (basketball) shoes I've ever worn. The fit is nice. The ventilation kinda sucks, and I was worried they weren't really a performance model. Turns out they were made for hooping and they're the lightest AJ to date. I was thinking about getting the Curry Ones because I kept hearing how good they were. One guy told me he didn't care that his feet hurt after wearing them (which happened with my Jordan 28s, but not my 29s) because they performed so well. I dismissed him as a Curry jockrider (which he is), but that is the general consensus on those shoes. In the end, I paid extra not to wear a shoe with Curry's name on them and I'm glad I did.

    I was thinking about the Kobe Xs, but the material felt cheap, so I didn't try them on. I heard the KD Elite's were too stiff. I was gonna buy these:

    I like the colorway. I knew they'd get dirty fast, but I still wanted them. The material is nice, good ventilation, but they run small and are a little too narrow for my foot.

    The most comfortable basketball shoes I have ever worn. Maybe not the best in style, but damn were my feet pampered.

    Are you talking about most comfortable Jordans for hooping or more formal occasions like work or hitting the club?

    Both. You've got to be comfortable for hitting on the ladies.

    These were my favourite back in the day (TMac 5), I am yet to find a shoe that matches the comfort of the Adidas TMac range

    They're LerBon 2. More than a decade ago unfortunately and the world will never see anything like it again. And I don't even like the player.

    I'm pretty sure they won't let you in a club with Jordans... I went to limelight one night with a friend of mine and he was rocking a brand new pair of Nike Basketball shoes and they said he wasn't in dress code... meanwhile I was wearing an old beat up pair of Vans and they gave me no problems lol

    Have to add that it's TMac 6's (on the picture and also the ones I'm talking bout), not 5.

    Most comfortable I've ever worn. Lasted me 2-3 years of intense hooping (for my standards)
