I love playing in the Kobe 11 / XIs EM or EP (not the flyknit Elite version). But these are limited and hard to find these days at a decent price. I actually slip in the Elite midsoles (with the heel zoom air) and theyre perfect for me. Anyone know any alternatives that are the same or similar? Better if the same XI Elite midsole insert can fit in as well. I recently copped a pair of Harden 3s since my Kobes are all beat up and the traction is wearing out. The cushion is great, but Im not getting that same court feel and I feel very insecure in the heel area.

Why not just buy another used pair of Kobe’s from eBay or something lol. Edit: I just looked on eBay. There’s tons in different sizes for really cheap.
Check out StockX, I got a pair of Lower Merion 11 EMs for 100 haha, just keep an eye out
Kobe IX (9) EM Low Tops, great for guards. The IX *Elite* lows are that new poly material that is great but more rigid but very expensive ($200+) shoe. Kobe IX EM low are great, you can find some off ebay used. Just make sure to judge the quality of the
Which color ways? Theres plenty of 11s out there The 11 EM is one of my favorites too
The colorway isnt too important. I prefer the non-translucent outsole since I believe they last longer (I sometimes play outdoors). I currently have the Draft Days
Yeah Id just look on eBay or stockx or goat. Shouldnt be hard to find since its still fairly recent shoe
I suggest asking over in /r/basketball Theres a dedicated shoe discussion thread every week.
