The Mamba Focus is Kobe Bryant's latest budget model. Unfortunately, the performance is disappointing overall.
The traction starts off really bad and gets slightly better over time, but you never get the hard stops you want.
The cushioning in the heel is very hard, and the bottom-loaded Zoom unit in the forefoot gives you only a very minimal bounce.
The materials feel cheap in-hand but get the job done. A large outrigger and sturdy heel counter provide good support and lockdown.
Even at the affordable retail price of $100, this shoe is still underwhelming overall and not recommended by sneaker critics.
