Man I really hope the All-Stars drop, even though it doesn't look like it's happening. I don't understand why Adidas didn't just re-release them during All-Star weekend, especially since it was in LA this year. Would have been the perfect time to do so since the first shoes he ever wore in an All-Star game were these KB8s/Crazy 8s.

I can't remember who brought it up, but someone was talking about the weight of the 2011's vs the original 2005 retro. I believe they said the 2011's were lighter?

I compared the purple pair I just picked up this week to two pairs of the original retro and the 2011's are definetly heavier. One of my original retro pairs are half a size smaller and they're still lighter than the 2011's.

xsalvioutlawx, the purples are made with suede n leather same as the yellow/purples. I have the yellows and they are heavier then the blk/white~ The blk/white is made of nubuck much lighter. Also, the suede made colorways are much harder to flex in the toe areas~

Oh one more thing, the 05 retros have a much harder toe box then the later retros. I had my toe nail came off after a game when I played in the lakers home colorway smiley: frown

I was considering it was because of the materials as well, it's a good observation, but I noticed that most of the weight difference was on the midsole...Then again it could of just been the way I was holding it. smiley: laugh

Would Patent leather weigh more? Because one of the 05's I compared my 2011's too were the Black/Gold which have patent on the whole shoe.

Damn....Sorry to hear about the nail, disgusting. smiley: sick

I would never wear these to ball in...I realize they're basketball shoes, but I bought them for casual wear because it's a classic and one of my favorite shoes in the Kobe line. But besides that they're too clunky for my taste after wearing all these super lite shoes.

Is Kobe wearing Black/Gold KB8's in this video? I didn't even remember them being an OG colorway until I saw this video a few years back.
