The best sock of all time...

I purchased this product:less than a month ago
The elites are extremely well cushioned. It feels like walking on clouds. They are so breatheable it feels cooler wearing them than in bare feet. The dri-fit is high quality, and although it can get a little fuzzy a few times though the wash, its great because it is cool, soft, and doesn't fall down your leg in basketball. These definitely passed the test in basketball. They are also stylish with the white stripes. My only complaints are the high price tag and the fact that it is so cushioned that is very difficult to get on. Great product though.
Pros: lightweight, good cushioning, good quality, breathable

These look great with basketball shoes. I liked these so much I got 6 pairs of the black ones. They have a lot of soft cushioning to absorb impact. They are good for playing basketball too, because they keep your feet dry and cool. They could be more durable though. They don't get holes, the fabric just gets worn after a while. They also fall down your leg a lot especially when playing sports.
Pros: good cushioning, breathable

These are good quality socks. The cushioning is great, they ventilate easily, and they are good for use with running shoes (not basketball shoes). They are good because since they are no-show the black ones don't heat up on hot summer days. I think these are the best quality no-show socks I've ever worn.
Pros: lightweight, good cushioning, good quality, breathable

The Flight 1 is great! They look sick with the pods on the side, the white accents, and of course the #1 tab. The materials are high quality. The nubuck has that new fresh smell and the air inside the sole really absorbs impact. The fit is amazing and the inside is plush and comfortable. My only problem with it is cleaning. The black nubuck gets scuffed and dusty. Creasing is a minor problem (be careful putting them on). I get compliments every time I wear these though! Overall the Flight 1 is a great 90s hoop sneaker.
Pros: lightweight, cool colors, stylish, comfortable, good ankle support
Cons: gets dirty fast, creases easily, hard to clean

Is this officially part of the Air Penny line?

I know Penny Hardaway wore these, but did Nike make this shoe officially penny's 1st signature shoe for him in 1995?

 Nike Hyperdunk - Men's
Nike Hyperdunk - Men's
Elevating basketball performance to the next level, the Nike Hyperdunk is an innovative combination of advanced Flywire technology and a basketball-specific Lunarlon cushioning system. This light, more supportive, durable and breathable basketball shoe is expressly designed to meet the demands of elite basketball players worldwide. The upper features the most advanced version of Flywire, which uses high-strength cables for support and stability. These responsive cables are loose when at rest and dynamic in motion, tensing to help stabilize the foot. A synthetic heel clip enhances lockdown, as the engineered foam and mesh of the upper reduces weight while further increasing breathability, strength and durability. Simultaneously, the collar of the shoe wraps lower in the back and higher over the front, increasing flexibility and lateral stability in the heel and ankle. The open mesh tongue and full inner sleeve provide lightweight ventilation and a more secure, comfortable fit. Basketball-specific Lunarlon midsole supplies a soft, yet responsive foundation. Improving upon past models, there is additional foam in key areas, enhancing lateral stability and durability. A 3-D shaped, glass-reinforced, composite midfoot shank offers torsional rigidity and responsiveness. The solid rubber provides durability and traction on a variety of surfaces while a modified traction pattern and forefoot pivot circle enhance multi-direction grip. Moreover, a high-wrapping lateral outrigger provides reinforcement for hard cuts, providing players with the support they need for high performance. Wt. 12.4 oz.
 

Is this hyperdunk better than last year's hyperdunk?

I epecially would like to know which has better ankle support
This year's hyperdunk is also much more breatheable than the 2011 because of the mesh panels on the side. The ankle suppport is probably similar but the hyperdunk 2012's ankle collar is much lower in the back and a lot higher in the front where you need it more, allowing for more flexibility and freedom of movement.

The Nike Air Foamposite Pro is a classic Nike basketball model that still maintains a space-age feel despite the advances in both the design and technology of basketball sneakers. The Air Foamposite One features a foamposite upper, a Zoom Air™ unit, inner bootie construction, a polyurethane midsole and a translucent rubber outsole that provides superior traction on the hardwood. Wt. 18.1 oz.
 

How do the foamposites sellout EVERYTIME, IMMEDIATELY when they are available? F-ootlocker

Foamposites are some of the most limited and rare sneakers ever. It's supply and demand, very little are made but a lot of people want them. You should get there early if you really want a pair.
