What are the best shoes for jumping?

As we all know the shoes that are best for jumping are those that let you "get light" on your feet.
But does that stand for all surfaces? And what are those shoes?
From what i've read ( from Kelly Baggett ) the best shoes for plyos are the Nike free's coz they improve the foot strength/ankle stifness.
But what would be the shoes that help you jump the best you can? Lets all state our experience/knowledge on this stuff!

My experience :
best shoes ive used for jumping on concrete : Nike track racer. Its very lightweight, lets your feet feel and move light , but theres no cushioning , watch out your knees and shins.
others ive tried and havent jumped so good : nike road explosion running shoe & various basketball shoes like zoom uptempo

best shoes ive used for jumping on wooden court : Nike Hyperdunk : this baby is out of this world! lightweight , perfect fit , cushioning, ankle protection , movement freedom , it has it all.
others ive tried and havent jumped so good : many many many nike basketball shoes , most of them Zoom

What about you? :D

I like basic cross country waffles (without spikes) for doing just about everything. They're light, thin, and allow your feet to really feel the ground. I practically live in the things.
