Hopefully better than the 2K series?
I love them. They're my go-to shoe now.
They're lighter than the CB4.3s and more nimble. I never had a problem with the weight of the CBs, but, I know some hypersensitive people do. These, so far, have performed well in stability, too (I'm a player who slides on hard courts). The one issue that Chris mentioned in the TW review holds true for me, too: my ankle doesn't feel locked down enough.
Compared to the 2K series, I like these more. The sole of the 2Ks felt stiff and clunky. And they weren't as durable. I find the soles of the Cages to be more flexible and it might have something to do with the lack of Zoom Air in the forefoot.
I went with my natural size and they fit fine with the Elite socks I wear. I tried going down a half size, but, it was too small and tight for me.
