I’ll believe it when I see it.

Every few years, a shoe company comes out with some type of “performance enhancing” show. One company has the Shox, I remember another came out with some type of springboard design in the heel of their shoe. It’s all snake oil.

All it really does is give this small company a lot of publicity.

Absolutely. It might be the best thing that ever happened to them.

It’s kind of like Flubber (or whatever that movie was).

Do you think the NBA banned them solely because of their claims or because they tested them and they actually do what they claim they do?

Maybe it had to do with prior sponorships not allowing them. Maybe they were tested and deemed to be unsafe. Perhaps the soles were scuffing and leaving off-colored marks on the hardwood floors.

Could be anything. Just like the claims of having all those “unnamed” rookies who want to wear them. I’m sure there’s more too it than that. It’s call “sensationalism”.
