Product Description

Before there was Michael Jordan there was Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the 7'2", six-time MVP winner from New York City.It was Kareem's first shoe that started the signature shoe craze in the 1980s. The Adidas KAJ Mid is a re-release of the original basketball shoe made for Kareem in 1971. This pair of shoes features: Full-grain leather offers durable support. Suede toe bumper provides extra protection and durability. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar graphic on tongue and signature above the classic Adidas' 3-stripes. Padded collar and tongue for a snug and secure fit. Traditional lacing system provides a tighter fit for more centralized support. EVA midsole absorbs shock and cushions each step. Durable rubber outsole with herringbone tread delivers great traction. Like it happens with movies, the first one of a series almost always turns out to be the best, and you can't get any better than the classics. Get a pair of Adidas KAJ Mid shoes, a classic that'll never fade.

    I was stoked to get these. They looked great in the pics, and hardly any sneaker can look better with jeans than the classic adidas. Now I've wearing adidas since 1984; sambas, shell toes, and my all time favorite, the all black with white stripe Adidas 2g08. Those shoes had it all and set a certain standard for me.

    After reading all the reviews for these shoes my expectations were high because the classics are (usually) made with genuine leather, and tend to look better with more wear. I received these and was more than disappointed. The leather is cheap and stiff like they could crack, nothing compared to the KAJ's I remember. The quality is simply not there. You can tell these are made in China, and that's never a good thing. I feel most of the prior reviews are high based on nostalgia. I get that, but I am shipping these shoes right back. They simply aren't quality. I will continue my hunt for the Adidas 2g08.

    I thought I'd like this shoe, but for me it turned out that there is just too much shoe. Even when I found the correct size it was just LARGE overall. Many people have liked them, and will like them, but not for me.

    These shoes are definitely awesome, I only subtract a star from my rating because if you have larger feet as I do, it's better to go a size up because at least I usually wear a size 13 and the size 13 of these shoes was a little bit too tight for me in the mid-foot area, as well as a bit tight around the toes. The other reason I marked down my rating a star is that these shoes are a bit thick, which isn't bad, but in terms of fit contributes to the tightness I'm talking about. The seller, BuyAndWalk, was nice enough to take the size 13's back and send me size 14's for no extra charge, really amazing of them to do for me and I super appreciate it. I will post an update about the fit of the size 14's to verify that getting a size larger will work, also I know these kinds of sneakers are usually a little thicker so I guess it might've been better to get a larger size to begin with but I didn't want to get the wrong size and have the shoes be way to loose for me.
    Update coming soon!

    These shoes are fresh as can be and can be rocked with any fit. There's nothing I love more than showing off my Kareem's. Great pair of kicks for only $65.
