    I really like the Yellow C.B. 1.3 as my favorite colorway if I were to choose my favorite for the year. However, I am not convinced on using the C.B.'s as my full time sneaker yet. If I had to choose between C.B. 1.3. and the Cage IIs, I'd think I'd choose the latter.

    i like the c.bs better cuz they got way better support and what not. the cages are lighter but my feet just dont like them

    I said it from the beginning that these USO C.B. 1.3's would be my fav and they still are.

    Too bad, that I'm going to end up getting the USO Cage II colorway instead..

    C.B. 1.3's weight is just too much. They feel heavy and hard to move around the court. My feet don't feel very comfortable w/ the C.B. 1.3's on. Period. Durability is the only plus I see in them. Cage 2's feel more comfy and isn't heavy at all. My only knock on them is that the durability isn't too good..

    Im not really feeling any of these new colors. They should put these up for the Nike ID program.

    honestly speaking, nike would make SO much more money if they came out with nike ID for tennis shoes- whether it be the ballistec, cage, vapor, or whatever. i bet if they charged an extra $20-30 for each pair, i GUARENTEE you that people would be lining up for them

    As much of a great idea it sounds, I doubt that Nike will end up creating it. Sad? Yes.

    court ballistec imo is much better shoe. the weight isnt too much the fit is just perfect and they have durability which is always nice. CB1.3 ftw

    It is quite strange that do not come out with some customization option. Especially since adidas offers the ability to customize the Barricade V

    Like in previous threads regarding to the C.B. 1.3, I've always said that they are very durable shoes, probably the most durable shoe Nike has ever made. However, with that being said, I see a few too many downfalls (IMHO) for me to use the C.B. 1.3 over the Cage II in my competitive matches.

    A few reasons include the fact that its too heavy. I can actually feel the effect of the weight and it slightly slows down my speed (again IMO). Also another knock I have on it is that at the toe area box (crease area box), whenever I crease the shoe excessively, I feel a discomfort in the area, it feels very stiff.

    I am not a fan of the colorways, besides the USO and Holiday colorway which is another reasons why I have yet to buy another pair of C.B. 1.3's ever since my "demo" pair w/ the White/Obsidian.
