First impressions. Snug fit, wraps the foot and ankles well, feet feel protected and well grounded. They are a tad heavy but the weighted feel may be intentional. Nice court grip but allows quick lateral movements. Most important - for me - they provided good cushioning. I have been a Mizuno user for years and have been very disappointed as the quality has dropped noticeably one purchase to the next. I now suspect the knee, ankle and back pain I have developed could at least be partly attributed to them. I will post again after a few months on how the Nike are doing, if they weather well and continue to provide the same support and comfort, these will get 5 stars. It still gets my vote and recommendation :).
