This is the best bball shoes I've ever bought! D rose 6 has the Best cushioning ever and it is still pretty responsive with adequate court feel! The Black & Red colorway is durable and really well padded so it feels comfortable, however the ventilation could be a little bit better!
These shoes work great for basketball. I did get a little blister on the out sides of both of my large toes because they are a bit narrow... but other than that they are doing the job. definitely not my favorite pair of shoes. But I like how the pattern is not exactly mirrored on the shoes. both shoes have a unique but correlating pattern.
The quality and the outlook of the shoes are excellent. Traction is great on indoor court. For the down sides, two things need to be mentioned, boost and fit. Boost is great soft, I can feel it clearly, but after 2 hours play, my knees and ankles are sour, which has been with me for recent two year. I think it went with the soft boost. The other thing is about the fit, to get good lock down feeling, there are two lace eyes in each shoe, but they quite hurt my feet and I have to wear thick socks or not using them. Hope the next version will be better.
These shoes are really good. I feel like the left one is more comfortable than the right one though. It really fits my feets allthough I have small feets. Not that that heavy and good looking. You should really go get yourself a pair.
Super comfortable shoe, the boost is great. A little tight just beyond the laces, but the rest is great. Traction could have been better but I play outdoors on poor Tarmac so can only be so good. The build quality is phenomenal and I definitely recommend these shoes. They look great. This was for the synthetic leather model.
I'm 34 and play pick-up 3 times a week. I am on the (slight) physical decline and I have a bad case of plantar fasciitis. These shoes are a god send. I initially played with them with the stock insole but shortly removed them for a superfeet orange insole for better arch support and they are by far the best I've played in in years. In my opinion they top the Kobe 9, Lebron 11/12/13, Melo M11, KD5 & 8, Clutchfit drive 1&2 mid and highlight. Those shoes may have some great features but overall the Rose 6 Allstar is my favorite. The only small complaint is that they have a little too much movement in the forefoot when doing step back type plays. It's not noticeable when you are playing but definitely the first few times you warm up. The lacing system takes some getting used to as well. Overall, if you like crazy cushion and an overall solid shoe.....this is it.
I always have to break in my basketball shoes and, so far, I've only worn these once. I didn't feel any instant comfort but I may just need to wear them a few times. On the right shoe, I felt a bit more pressure on the front of my ankle where the highest lace is tied. I checked the inside of the tongue and there was nothing out of the ordinary there. My left shoe was fine so I'm not sure what the issue was with the right shoe. Again, maybe I just have to break them in. I do love the grip of the outsole though. I was slipping at all and I was able to pivot and quickly stop and go without any issues.
When buying these shoes i was skeptical to the performance of the shoes as i knew how heavy the shoe was and how the materials aren't very flexible. When i opened them though i was blown away, the boost creates a cloud for you to run on! With all this boost in the shoes does have negative effects though. Trying to be light on your feet and on your toes is a struggle. The grip on the shoe is good but wiping is needed due to the grooves not being very deep. I would recommend this shoe to a big man or a powerful player due to all the boost and the way the shoe is made. The ankle support is OK, there is very thick padding in the ankle but i feel it could come a little higher on the ankle and have a few more lase loops. All in all the shoe looks great, is made amazingly and performs really well.
I bought this shoe back in January and by the end of February, there were permanent stains in the suede from rain or basketball courts. In March, I started noticing that my left shoe had a hole in the suede by the pinky toe. I went to my shoemaker and he was able to fix it. More money I had to put into the shoe... The shoe fits and feels amazing so I try to wear them as much as possible, but maybe a week later there is a huge ripon the seam of the shoe in the middle of the inside of the same left shoe... I don't play basketball very often, maybe 3-4 time a week for 2-3 hours but this is insane how easily this shoe broke. Hopefully this is just a problem with this one shoe because they are so comfortable and have a great grip...
Catch everyone's eye when I wear them on court, switched out for thicker insole for a little more cushion, this also solved a little of the dead space problem I was having above he toes. Make sure you keep wiping the outsold and you're good. Got mine for 70 something and I'd definitely recommend, but if they're over 100, go with the d lillards or crazy light.
I bought these shoes and I wore them about 5-7 times a week and they did not hold up well. First I noticed the boost was chipping, then I noticed that rubber material in between the boost was getting beat up then in a game at halftime one of my laces ripped in half and had to buy new laces then I noticed the traction in some places was ripping. And the shoes are pretty heavy, I were kd's for a casual shoe and when I take my basketball shoes off after practice I notice a HUGE weight difference. PS Im not writing this because I hated Drose or Adidas but it is quite the opposite i'm just saying this is not the shoe for you if you play ball as often as I do.
I purchased Jordan XXX, Jordan 29, Soldier 9, Curry 2, and several other brands of shoes this year. Nothing, i mean nothing, comes close to the Derick Rose 6 in terms of cushion and comfort. Its simply in another league. I picked up the purple prime knit version. The colorway is ugly, but I wanted the soft knit as opposed to the harder synthetics. Again, amazing shoe. I am a 10b in brannock device and went with a 9.5. My foot still has room on the sides and slides, even with stance nba socks. I may have to add another liner sock for perfect fit. These run very big. Anyone whos older, or has a history of knee and ankle support, please
I just purchased these for my son. This was not a first time purchase of D Rose sneaks and have always been satisfied with the quality. I was disappointed with materials used. They look like a dollar store purchase.
Too bad J. Wall didnt rock these during ASW because these were hands down the best shoe to come out next to the James Harden. The Prime Knit is flawless, a very comfortable shoe and by far the best silhouette of the bunch that was released.
Normally I don't wear low top shoes because of the worry about your ankle but after haveing this shoe, I might start wearing them more often. The couple days I wore them at the gym they were stiff and made my feet sore but after it fits just fine. GREAT BASKETBALL SHOE.
The best shoes on the market if it comes to traction, no need to wipe your shoes on the court. BOOST is that what I was looking for for a long time not Air not Lunarlon but BOOST !!! Very big amortization which is good for your back and knees, I definitely recommend.
fit and support is awesome. tracction is great on clean courts, wiping is required on dusty courts. the best atrribute on this shoe is cushion! you gotta try the full lenght Booost! best cushion on a basketball shoe ever! love the shoe.
Man I love these shoes! Full length boost feels amazing, unless you like really minimal cushioning. Traction is ok and the fit is a lil roomy in the toebox but good for slightly wide feet I would say.
The shoe performs great. Sticks well on court and great cushioning. It hold the foot in place while playing with the wrap around style lacing. The design is unique and stands out. Love that. The only down fall is that the shoe is very tight around top of shoe because of the wrap around lace design and it doesn't give any room to stretch out. If you have wide feet this is a problem.
I customized my Drose 6 and i have to say, the construction and build quality is outstanding. My only complaint is, when i customized this shoe i noticed the cat tongue ankle liner isnt there, also the tongue seems to be a lot thinner than the regular colorways. But this is only because i customized mine. Also, i purchased the ankle braces that drose wears with this shoe, and they fit perfectly with my ankle, and the shoe itself. the traction is almost too good :) , but i dont recommend theses outdoor due to the soft and shallow grooves. They fit me perfectly, and the ankle brace takes up a bit of the dead space in the toe box. And you cant forget how amazing boost is. Its light weight, responsive, and has super impact protection. And the support is awesome due to the amazing fit and heel strap system, which really does work well. This shoe can be worn by any player on the court, even big men. And dont be afraid wide footers because this shoe's got you covered. And for only $140??? Thats crazy! Adidas amazes me once again, 5 stars to the D'rose 6
These shoes are great for kicking around in the snow or hiking up a mountain. They are not good basketball shoes, you get absolutely no grip, they are extremely heavy. They are not made for an athletic above the rim type of player. These are the worst basketball shoes I have had to wear. The only reason I purchased these shoes is because it was my team's team shoe.
I got these for my husband. He has 4 other pair of d.rose shoes & he never has anything bad to say about them. He especially likes the design of these shoes & the comfort. He stated these are the best so far & plans to purchase these in red. He likes that he has the option of not tying his shoes because of the special side loops. I will definitely purchase this shoe for my son too.
I have 2 pairs of the D Rose 6 - the original and the Mi (customized) and here a quick review of both versions: Non-Mi Version: This is the standard version that you buy without customization. This is the version you want. It has all the standard features the shoes is supposed have to without anything being stripped. With that said, traction, cushion, support is hands down the best for 2015. Boost blows away anything Nike has and I'm coming from the Kobe 9 and Lebron 11 Elite. Mi Version: Highly disappointed. I'm not sure how Adidas can even get away with this. With NikeID, you get all the standard features of the original shoes but you get it customized. Period. That's it. But with Adidas, you get the sneakers customized and they strip away some major features. The features that seem to have disappeared from the Mi version are: (1) "Cat Tongue" around the ankle area. This is the fabric that locks your ankles in. It feels like what it's called and it's amazing. Mi version doesn't have it. (2) Ankle cushioning. Gone. (3) Tongue cushioning. Gone. When I discovered those features missing, I was livid. I assume that folks that buy the Mi version wear them casually? If so, that's fine but if you plan on playing in the shoes, then do NOT buy the Mi version. Adidas: If you're reading this, please do not pull this again. I love your brand and I root for your brand but this experience has put a sour note and I intend on telling everyone I know about this experience - not because I'm angry, but because I just disappointed and it's just not right to do something like this.
I am a 25 year veteran of the athletic footwear business and have played basketball on every level and have owned all of the current best shoes on the market for Lebron's, Jordan's, Kobe's etc. I was very reluctant to buy and try these shoes and bought them for my 13 year old who is an elite AAU player. I can testify the the Adidas D-Rose 6 with Boost technology is one of the best basketball shoes I've ever played in. The fit was amazing, the lacing system locked the ankles in place, the outsole had outstanding traction and the cushioning Boost technology is the best I've testing in 25 years. If you are an elite player and want the best built basketball shoe on the market for the price, I highly recommend the Adidas D-Rose 6!
This shoe is designed to get you buckets: from the secure ankle collar to the boost midsole. It's an upgrade over the D Rose 5 due to the unlocked boost so you feel more cushioning. Thanks to this shoe I get my daily recommended dose of BUCKETS!
