I’ve got several pairs each of the Flightposites/Foamposites (shoehead here) & for court feel the the Flightposite series rocks. If you can fit the Flightposite 3 model, it’s like landing on pillows after a rebound. Great cushioning.
Here is a link to an archived site that is now defunct but when this dude was online doing his bball reviews he was legendary; if you Google “Kicksology.net” you will find a tresaure trove of info on various Nike bbball shoes that serious bball shoe heads archived & saved, and some others (And1, etc). Too bad he branched into clothing, took a loss & had to close his site down.
Also this quote from another site:
“Does anybody here remember kicksology.net? image The site existed during a time where DSL and cable internet were things unheard of. It was run by a guy who wrote under the name Professor K and was dedicated to reviewing hoops shoes. His articles on shoes were the most in depth you could ever find. They were quite lengthy but definitely worth the time as they were well written and unbiased. Everything from design and technology, to weight and even break in periods of the shoes would be elaborated upon. If you were fortunate enough to play in some of the shoes he reviewed, you would certainly find that the Professor knew what he was doing. Readers would probably agree with about 90% of the things he put down. image It was your all-around resource if you wanted to know more about a shoe before purchasing. That’s where you could find out if a sneaker lived up to its technological hype or if you could get something better to hoop in for half the price. Sadly, this site no longer exists.”

I forgot about kicksology! The problem with the flightposite’s were they were “fitted”. The 2 and 3’s are some of the sharpest looking shoes of all time, but if your foot wasn’t built for 'em you couldn’t wear 'em. I have a very narrow foot and they just didn’t fit well. I also had a pair of the Air max uptempo 96/97’s and they were the same way. The comfort and cushioning were off the charts [not to mention they looked dope as hell], but they were made for a wider foot. I actually cut the elastic bands that were “laced” over the tongue so I could tie 'em tighter.
