I believe thats why Kobe's knee, ankle and foot injuries have accelerated. Since he went to those lighter shoes his injuries have been way more frequent than they used to be. Who knows, guess we'll have to just wait and see
While I can definately see why you'd think that, it's not true. Kobe's knee has had tendonitis (sp?) since years before he switched to lows. Check out pics from 06 and sh*t and you'll still see him rocking the sleeve on his knee.
Ankle injuries are gonna happen whether your in lows or highs. The whole "highs brace your ankle more" thing is false, because if you land on someone's foot your gonna sprain your ankle regardless. Check out soccer players. They all play in lows and place way more torque on their ankles than basketball players.
Foot injuries =
Does Kobe have any foot injuries really?
