Nike Mama Fury Review

Pros:
Nice design for a budget model
Cons:
Firm cushioning offers no impact protection
Traction doesn't work on lateral cuts

Performance of the Nike Mama Fury:

How does Kobe's latest budget model perform? The Mamba Fury is very similar to the Mamba Focus and features the same traction pattern. Unfortunately, that's not a good thing as the traction doesn't perform very well - especially on hard lateral cuts. The cushioning is super minimal and gives you almost no impact protection. The only good thing is that you get a lot of court feel. The materials are pretty standard for a budget model and get the job done. Support and lockdown are good thanks to the snug fit and the lateral outrigger. Even for $100, the Mamba Fury is not recommended. Spend a little more for a signature sneaker like the PG4 or get a better budget sneaker like the Lebron Witness 4 at the same retail price.

Don't get it! My feet hurt a lot because of the super minimal cushioning. The traction isn't good, the materials are meh and you can get much better shoes - even at a budget price of $100.
 More details
I didn't get to play in these and I do like the design and the colorways, but for only $10 more you can get the PG4 with a much better cushioning and more premium materials.

The traction of the snake scales did not hold up on a dusty court, nor did they really hold up on a clean court. The cushion was as close to standing on a wooden plank for a sole as you could get and the shoe did not last long. The fit was true to size although the shoe did feel very narrow, so i would recommend going up a half to a full size. All in all, not a hoop shoe anymore and a very poor performer.

On an outdoor court, the traction wasn't good on really hard lateral cuts. The pattern is the same as on the Mamba Focus, which had horrendous traction on my indoor court.

The cushion is absolutely horrendous. The very stiff Phylon doesn't provide any impact protection at all. The only good thing is that you get a lot of court feel.
 More details
The Phylon cushioning doesn't feel great underfoot and I really don't like the tiny Nike Zoom rectangle in the forefoot.

The textile upper material conforms to your feet very well and offers a lot of support. The tongue is made of a well-ventilated Mesh but the padding is very minimal. For $100, you can't complain about the materials, but they are not super nice.
 More details
The materials are super basic but should get the job done.

No issues with the support and lockdown. Lateral containment and stability are good thanks to the sharp outrigger.

The materials are thin and minimally padded. The fit is super narrow and my feet fell asleep multiple times.

The rubber doesn't seem to be super durable as some of the pattern is fraying off. But that's pretty much normal wear and tear you experience on outdoor courts.
