micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
No break in, straight out the box the fit is great, feel really light good room in the toe box.hoping the durability is as i expect from Adidas. Arch feels very supported very stable moving lateral looking forward to some court time with these. Great colours very vibrant,
Love these tennis shoes. They are so lightweight & comfortable. And they look great. All the tennis coaches at my club are so impressed - and jealous! I regularly play on carpet & indoor acrylic and they are perfect for both. I also play on clay, AstroTurf & shale and again they are perfect for all these surfaces. Although I have yet to play on grass in this particular pair, I have played ingress in other pairs of Adizero unersonics. Again, they are perfect. This proving to be a tennis shoe perfect for ALL surfaces.
Initially I loved this shoe I felt planted to the ground and moved extremely well on the court. It was almost my favorite shoe of all time. However... My knees really started to hurt after a few sessions on the court. I'm 35 years old and still play very hard but I wish I had younger knees so I could give this shoe 5 stars.
I love the support and comfort these shoes provide. Initially I preferred these shoes to all previous purchases. However, I am disappointed by the lack of durability in the sole of the shoe. I have owned these for less than two months and for the past week and a half the sole has been worn through on my primary foot. I play tennis 10-12 hrs a week on hard courts. I guess if you play even half as frequently as that you would be better served by the Barricade shoes which are guaranteed for 6 months.
Trust me when I say this, I have a lot of adidas tennis shoes. I am a big fan of the barricade and have recently been sporting the barricade 9 which I think is a great shoe. Recently I got the chance to test out the new Ubersonic, I have tried a couple of Adizero shoes in the past but often found them feeling either cheap or uncomfortable. Firstly, I was keen to try this particular model because I think it looks great. In all black with a red sole these shoes look like they mean business, a stealth bomber disguised as a tennis shoe. The profile of the shoe also boosts it's aesthetics, the guys at adidas told me this has been build on a running last thus giving the unbersonic a sleek and speedy look. The subtle 3 stripe branding on the side and adidas logo on the heel all add to the shoes look. It's not showy, it's 'I am going to sneak on on court, cause you problems, and then disappear before you even know who or what happened' and I love that! So, how does the Ubersonic perform? I haven't been harping on about the looks just because I am image concious, although we do all like to look good on court. However I think the performance of this shoe is actually based around the sleek and speedy look of it. The shoe feels planted, you feel low to the ground and ready to pounce, or dance if that's more your thing. My best analogy is that this this is an F1 car, and your the driver sat low and close to the floor. It defiantly does feel a little like a running shoe for tennis, and maybe that's what adidas had in mind. This shoe is supposed to be about speed and I certainly feel quicker around the court in this vs a barricade. Don't worry when I say running shoe, this still has good lateral support which is set toward the mid and rear of the shoe in the form of a reforced polymer band in which the laces loop through and lock you down. Adidas has informed me they have moved toward mid/rear foot support to help give more flexibly/agility in the forefoot, and this certainly delivers. Grip wise, at first they felt all over the show, I think with any new pair you need to take a thin layer of rubber off before they becoming sticky. After a few matches I feel I have a perfect balance between grip and the ability to slide a little on a hard court. A number of people often pick a tennis shoe based on durability, for me it's not really on my list of requirements, I go for comfort first, how it's feels, how it looks and then will it last. I am not best placed to comment on the durability having only worn the shoe for a couple of weeks. So far so good, I have been playing hard and pushing the shoe, there is a thick layer of rubber around the toe box for abrasion protection and mine still look close to new despite me sliding around the court. I am guessing the outsole will last as adidas have used the industry standard in durability, their adiwear6 rubber. Inside the shoe there is an internal sock and sharks tooth lining (that's what I call it) basically it grips the sock to stop your foot sliding around. I think adidas have really upped their game in the comfort category with this shoe and the most recent barricade, so we'll done adidas! I have given this shoe 5 stars, I think it's possibly one of the best shoes on the market aimed at a serious player with a fast game and I can't wait to put them on my feet again. Finally, word of advice, I am usually a UK 10, however the 10.5 fits me perfect. Thanks.
I got these speedwraps for my first son after he wore me down begging me to get him what I thought was yet another sport accessory. He said Drose wear and has the exact same product in his sport bag and that they work in preventing him from further ankle injuries. I thought we should give them a look. They have been great in minimizing and preventing sprain ankles and other foot injuries. Unlike other ankle wraps, he likes the adidas speed wraps so much he wears them without me having to remind him to do so. We just got a second pair for my other athlete son.
Great strap! Recommended and looking forward to new colorway & or new models! Only flaw is when you wear down these straps the plastic ankle guards dig into your ankle, that's when a new one is needed!
I wear them on the court when hooping, and on the pitch for indoor soccer (both full of hard cuts and stopping on a dime). Even with a light wrap on my right ankle, the Speedwraps didn't make anything too bulky or restrictive with a sock over them. Of course this won't replace a full on brace, but it is great to have the reinforcement in a lightweight package, worth the price.
Initially, I thought the purchase would be a waste of money and I was definitely planning to return or resell. However, after playing in the speedwraps, I now know that adidas does not play when it comes to performance and protection. The speedwrap kept my ankles tight and in place, features which ankle tape lacked. I'm so glad that I bought the item so I can dominate and protect myself at the same time !
I play basketball and I have very bad ankles. I bought both the right and left one and it supports my ankles great. The problem I had with other ankle braces would be that they don't fit in my shoes, but these are very lightweight and will fit in any shoe. I would recommend this product to anyone I know.
I roll my ankles a lot so I had recently baught this product. I havnt rolled it ever since but the only problem is that if you have a boney ankle, it pinches it. Other than that, the product is great.
These are only for playing and not recovery. If you have a high arch like myself then it might pinch on the bottom of your arch. If you have skinnier feet then probably go down a size. They do work good. Very Durable. Worth the $60.
They are light, breathable and provide the support needed for ankles that are getting a little older and that have been abused through many years of athletics. I have never had ankle problems, but they were starting to get sore so I thought I would try them out. They aren't bulky and don't restrict me from doing what I want performance wise. I really don't even feel like they are on when I wear them...but when they are off you can feel a difference in support! Great product
Having been around the block a few times, you feel the old injuries. I had tried the ankle braces from the big discount chain. While the support was adequate, the comfort left very much to be desired. I have always liked the quality of the adidas brand so I tried the ankle brace. I was not disappointed. The support and comfort are superior to the brand I previously tried. The materials are comfortable and it fits well. It provides that same stirrup support that you get when taping the ankle. The adjustable strap makes putting it on and removing fairly easy. I feel confident to walk the mall or go dancing again!
My son loves these braces! They fit is much more comfortable than other brands of braces because they don't cut into the arch area. They still offer great ankle support.Better fit for bigger fellas-- size 14. Held up well to daily wear for both basketball and baseball.
Just tried out the ankle brace for the first time. Rolled my ankle a few weeks ago and figured I need extra protection because I play in low cut shoes. Fit is good, I think this brace is best to help prevent injuries as it's not as tight as some of the other ankle braces (McDavid) that I have used in the past. However, it's much faster to put on, light, and didn't easily fit over my sock into my shoes. Exactly what I was looking for.
I was a little scared about buying the Peed Wrap but honestly its Amazing . very comfortable & fits EveryShoe ! It looks super freshh /Steeziin . Its light , tight , & works like dynomite :D BUY IT NOW :D
Used these the other day in a game and worked really well. Slim enough to not make your cleats feel too small, you can also feel a lot of support when you plant your foot. I wish the velcro strap on top wasn't so thick... Im sure it looks good with some high tops. It would be nice if they made one specifically to go with soccer cleats, or better yet built into the cleats. My favorite part is the spacing in front of the ankle by the laces, most braces always pinch there. Also wanted to note they run small. Over all great...any one who has rolled their ankle and wants to play to be able to play another game should get these!
I already had the Right side and it was pretty good! This Left one however...i felt some hard solid part inside the brace rubbing against my ankle and it kinda hurts when I play. Overall, it's still a nice ankle brace to have and simple to use!
This is a great product but I wish these came with 2 wraps per package. I'm a point guard so I do a lot of cutting and crossover. In an effort to protect my ankles, I need two wraps. It would be a lot easier and affordable if these came with two speed wraps in one package for maybe $30 or $40. The product itself is great but the packaging and selling deal is not.
For years with my AT, I have been looking for a great ankle brace to hoop in, and I have finally found the one. Much to her dismay I chose the speedwrap. She was weary of how little protection it would provide, and always suggests the standard lace up wrap around baces. My problem with previous braces have been that they a) cumbersome b) restricting and c) enormous. With those braces after 10 minutes of lacing up and finding a comfortable position I would play for an hour and then lose circulation in my foot. That is not the case with this speed wrap, it's lightweight while still providing protection when making hard stops/cuts. Also it is supremely easy to put on, 60 seconds or less and I'm ready to roll. It's hard to believe that such a small thing can provide the necessary protection w/o sacrificing comfort. I will say this though I have the Rose 2.5's, so I don't know how it will work with other non-adidas shoes, but it slips into my Roses perfectly.
Breathability: 8.5/10 The breathability of this ankle wrap really surprised me. Most ankle braces make my ankle sweat and hot, but with the adiZero construction it made my ankle cooler. And the coolness leading to better performance on the court. Ankle Support: 9.5/10 These ankle brace's ankle support are outstanding. Not just some fabric that you throw together and call a ankle brace, but this brace is built tough. A hard shell on the outside bone of your ankle prevents any hyperextension. I would say this ankle support is more of a preventer that a healing brace. Fit: 8/10 The fit of this ankle wrap, to me, was a little more on the tighter side. I wear a size 10.5 and thought I would get a size M brace, that might be my mistake. But the tightness turned out to my advantage a bit. Material: 8.5/10 The adiZero material is great, one of my all time favorites of adidas shoes. The brace feels like it would stand up to a lot of abuse. However, once worn a lot, it could develop visible fold creases which might not look that attractive. Longevity: 8.5/10 This brace would definitely last me a long time build on it's construction. adidas products have always been a first for me. Hope this review helped some of you!
Ankle rolls and injuries are so frequent in sports like basketball. An injury to your ankle can sideline you from the game for 2 weeks or a month if its real bad. These Ankle wraps not only prevents most injuries from happening to the ankle, they are comfortable and give you the confidence you need to do things u did not want to try because of the probability of injury. They are light, yet sturdy, and provide the security needed to keep performing.Great product
The fit is great. In the past I have had trouble finding a comfortable ankle brace that fits well into football cleats, as well as high top basketball shoes. These ankle braces do both and give me the support I feel I need, yet flexible for movement in all my sports. On a funny note, they can be removed quickly. Just the other day at football practice, a bee flew on my leg, crawled under my ankle brace and stung me. I was able to get the brace off at record speed. :) I highly recommend Adizero speed wrap brace!
I BALL. I ball HARD. I've always loved wearing ankle braces. When I first seen D Rose(my favorite player) playing in the Adidas Adizero Speedwrap, I knew I had to have'em. Not only do they protect you from rolling your ankle but they're a HUGE "fashion statement". I like to think of these speedwraps as a bullet proof vest for your ankle lol.
