Overall, I like this basketball shoe. They are light and seem to be made of good quality. I would like to see what the condition of the shoe is after about a year of use. Right now I'm using them for indoor gym play only, but would like to see how they hold up outdoors on concrete. Takes some getting used to, to properly strap the shoe up and I had to walk around with the small instruction sheet to remember how the straps are supposed to be placed. I wore the shoes without the ankle supports that I normally wear due to multiple ankle sprains and week ankle joints. I wanted to put the claims to the test. Unfortunately one day during a game, I stepped on a foot coming down from a rebound and turned my ankle in a way where no shoe could have prevented a strain. Don't get me wrong, if I weren't wearing these shoes the sprain would probably have been much worse, maybe even damaged ligaments or a break. No shoe could have prevented my ankle from bending the way it did when I came down on that foot. When I took the shoe off later that night to ice my ankle, I noticed there were black and blue marks where the straps cross over the joint of the ankle, which indicated to me the shoe tried to do it's job as best it could without breaking my ankle. I wound up with a "high" ankle sprain instead on a normal sprain. Keep in mind that I am a 48 year old weekend warrior with a long history of bad ankle sprains, attempting to keep up with 30 to 35 year old's. From now on I'll wear my normal ankle supports along with the shoe for added protection. Overall I like the way the shoe feels, they are very light, but seem durable enough and the grip of the bottom rubber seemed very good, even on a dusty gym floor. I would recommend this shoe to anyone who have had chronic ankle injuries or would like to prevent them.

Rating Most comfortable shoes EVER!
 
Have been playing in these for a couple of weeks, a few times a week. Way more comfortable than my Nike shoes. The straps require you to read a set of instructions. Total time figuring this out was 5 minutes. Now takes the same time as any other shoes and way less time than putting on ankle braces. I feel totally secure in these shoes.

I have previously purchased the Wraptors and love how they fit like a glove so I thought I'd try out the Post Ups and I'm very pleased with how they feel on the Court. I'm never worried when I drive hard to the basket or go up for a rebound. Keep em coming Ektio!

Rating No more icing my ankles!
 
After each session, i was spending the night with icepacks on both of my feet. Ankles and achilles tendons were in terrible pain and my wife was really complaining that i was pushing my body too far. That was BEFORE i got my EKTIOs! This shoe is absolutely brilliant. They feel light and like they are part of your feet! My heel was locked at the back of the shoe (obviously the friction of my back-heel with all normal shoes, caused inflammation of my old injury) The ankle feels stronger, you can feel it in each step! With normal shoes, if i tried lowering and try to cross-over, i felt intense pain in my right ankle (the one i have sprained like a thousand times), so i was avoiding explosive moves. With my EKTIOs, my ankle is locked inside the shoe, so any pressure applied to my weak ligaments was vastly reliefed The greatest feeling is when you land after a strong jump! You can really feel the power of this shoe! How many times you avoided jumping for a rebound, fearing you will land on some other guy's foot and sprain your ankle? Well, after a couple of jumps, i let my self go! I felt lighter and more confident, jumping higher, scoring more and getting more rebounds! I am 34, and pretty heavy. Before my Post-Ups, i was posting and shooting without really jumping. Now i can be more versatile, i can post, jump-shoot (that was waaaaay improved, since i feel more confident now), cross-over slower players, and jump strong enough to do a reverse lay-up. I havent done these since i was 20! I am even considering joining an amateur league team, starting next week! So, throw away your ankle braces, get a pair of EKTIOs and focus on the game. You will be amazed...
