Nike Lebron Soldier 9, KD Trey 5 iii vs Curry One Low SHOES
Hey guys, this is Max. Haven’t had a video
in a while so I thought maybe we could do a shoe review. We got the LeBrons, we got the
KDs and we got the Curry Lows. First, let’s take a look at the Nike Zoom
LeBron Soldier 9s. So, open up the box. We got, here they are.
(clapping) The color is blue sword. There’s a little
LeBron sign on the front right there. And also, a LeBron sign on the bottom. These shoes
retail for $140. These shoes are made with an innovative strap system and a lower profile.
There’s a lot of cushioning inside the shoe for protection of impact. The traction for
these shoes is very good, as it has little hexagons on the bottom to give your foot good
support on the court. There is also a durable rubber element that
helps you not slip on the court. According to Nike, the innovative strap system provides
360 degree lockdown helping support your foot. The sidewalls of the shoe wrap up higher but
I think that these shoes are a little stiff. The shoes might even restrict your movement.
I’m not a big fan of the LeBrons but these actually don’t look too bad.
They look like they have more support than the other LeBrons that I’ve had before.
These shoes also are a little more light. So I would say these shoes are an improvement
from the old LeBrons but still not great. So why don’t we move on to the KDs.
Alright guys, now we’re going to look at the KDs. To be exact, these are the KD Trey 5
iii. Very confusing name. Alright, so let’s take a look at these. So
I’ll unpackage them, and look at them. And they are like a reddish Pink.
(clapping) The color is like a university red. It’s a
nice change of pace if you aren’t a fan of the KD low tops. The mid-sole is rather similar
to the KD 8s. There is a similar extended heel. Continuing to the front of the shoe,
there are large grooves in the fore foot. But unfortunately, that’s where the similarities
end. The counter heel helps lock your foot in place
for stability. On the heel, you see a unique graphic of plus signs. Who knows, maybe KD
was a math teacher before he went into the NBA. But the plus signs don’t have to do with
math. The plus signs are a reference to KDs love of video games. The low lying strap helps
provide a lockdown fit. With the Nike Zoom technology in the sole, there is very good
traction. So now that we’ve talked about the structure
of the shoe, I’m going to tell you guys about my opinion. I had KDs before and they were
a little lower than this. I don’t think they had good ankle support so I ended up selling
them to a friend. Honestly. These, I don’t know if I would have them as
a basketball shoe but I really like the coloring of it and the traction doesn’t look bad at
all. It looks pretty good. I like them a lot better than the low tops and let’s move onto
the Currys. Finally, let’s look at the Curry One Lows.
Alright, so let’s take a look at them. These shoes are black and of course charged by belief.
Under Armour tells us that the Curry Ones are designed for the game’s most unguardable
players. The charged cushioning absorbs impact. The
AnaFoam upper gives the shoe a light weight structure and support. I always wondered what
the AnaFoam was. The external heel counter will secure your
foot and eliminate sliding. I totally agree with that, you do not slide in these shoes.
There is also the padding mesh tongue with the Sports Center, nope, Steph Curry logo
that protects your foot and it’s breathable. And also the tongue will stay in place. Also,
on the sides of the shoes, you’ll notice dots that are in the cushioning of the shoe. Alright
now let’s move on the traction of the shoe. Again, as with all the Currys there is a lightning
bolt with the Under Armour sign and there is also little tiny arrows pointing in all
directions that provide the shoe with really good traction. I think this shoe offers really
good control and is light. This shoe is the least expensive of all 3 shoes at $110 retail.
If I had to pick one shoe as my favorite I would probably have the Currys as my favorite
just because I’m used to them and even though it is a low top I’m sure that it would provide
just as much support as the other Currys. My second favorite shoe would probably be
the KDs just because of the fact that KD has never come out with a high top shoe before
and this is trying new things for him and I think it’s pretty good, I mean I’ve tried
them on, they feel pretty good. And then my least favorite shoe again would probably be
the LeBrons. LeBron is the most famous out of all these
people but his shoes are the worst out of all. Do you think that’s ironic?
Even though that’s a fact, I still love LeBron and the Cavs.
Make sure to watch my next video as I’ll be reviewing some Kyries. I can’t wait for the
college and NBA season. Thanks for watching my shoe review. Let me know in the comments
