i doubt they improve vert to any great degree, for $300, no one will be able to test if they do or not.

ah.. it wouldn't load earlier, so i didn't get to see that.. nice vid, from what i see, everything looks exactly the same.. in fact the black kid who wore them, his runup was better in RVJ & on the dunk attempts in normal shoes.. his run up got all whack in the other shoes, so who knows what that was about..

i didn't see any difference.
