I rolled my ankle wearing the Hyperdunks, and was out for a month.

Now I use the ZKIV's lol. People always ask why use the ZIV after I rolled my ankle lol.

ZF95's has a good combination of both comfort and ankle support for me, and it's been my favorite ballin shoes lately.

That's because (I believe at least) high cuts are over-rated when it comes to preventing ankle injuries.

what happened to the days when shoes had the monkey paw support to prevent ankle inversion (penny iv's, zoom gp ii, shox's bb4, limitless, stunner vc 1&2)?

Definitely noteworthy for being pretty stable, and low to the ground. I would've said the ankle support on the ZF96 is better, and that even by 2009it's pretty good.
Either way, both shoes are dirt cheap these days.

Did the OG Penny IV have a monkey paw? Some argue Nike phased it out because it wasn't as successful performance wise as they'd hope. Others say it wasjust cost-cutting.

huarache elite ii's. AND, the shoe i will never ball in again, huarache 2k4. Most comfortable shoe ever, but i just rolled my ankle for the second time inthe past year. no problem with any of the other shoes i've been wearing.

2k3's have the best ankle support of any shoe i've ever balled in...
admittedly they could improve a lot when it comes to comfort, but if
it's ankle support you're looking for, the 2k3's are where it's at

read my reviews here on this shoe as i am still balling in these outdoors/indoors and only using them to ball and not walk. Only used them to walk one time inorder to break them in more. Now they are slowly being broken into and feels more comfy. Also i jog with them when i don't play around the outdoor doublecourts just to stay warm and keep the muscles active. This is from my experience and i have ordered about 12 more pairs of these suckers and returned my ordersof powermaxes for these. Better than the payton gloves of the 90's imho.
