Really love the Pioneer colorway. I tried it on at adidas store and instantly bought it. It looked great and felt great. Much better looking in person. The hot colorway of the NMDs were sold out too quick before I had chance and I liked wearing basketball shoes anyway
This purchase was definitely worth it. I totally would recommend buying. They are one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever put on my feet. I only have a problem with piling. After maybe 3 or 4 wears they started piling and it it was upsetting. I absolutely love the shoes reguardless, just upset with the piling.
The shoes are extremely comfy and have good ankle support. The only problem is that you should never use these for outdoor playing, the sole is not very durable. It is just a shame that these could have been the jwall 3.
Really Good, if you have it, you can tell Harden put effort and time into designing into this shoe. Traction loses it in about 3-5 plays but a single wipe gets it back in the game. I'm pretty sure cushion is a good point in this shoe since it's a Low. Most Low don't have great cushion, but this one seems to do the job. Fit was so surprising to me. Fits well for wide footers. Narrower footers beware though, I went true to size. Lockdown is very good, these shoe won't fly in the air. Looks are fire. Feels heavy in the hand but I didn't mind it at all on my foot. Some notes on durability: This shoe so far doesn't have major problems, breaking in takes some days. If you hit the three stripes on the back of the shoe on something hard, it will scrap easy, so if you want it to look good and untouch, beware of that. Otherwise, I would say best Guard shoe to buy for 2016/2017. Hopefully Harden's next shoes will be just as good as the Harden 1.
Overall this is a great shoe - I would recommend it and it feels and looks like a premium shoe. Buy if you want a high quality shoe with great traction, good impact protection and support. Avoid if you want something minimal and light or hate having your toes bang against the forefoot. Here is my breakdown: Comfort - between the neoprine ankle collar, boost cushion and Primeknit they are quite comfortable. Traction - best I have tried! Works well on clean or dusty floors, minimal wiping need to keep the outsole sticky (I have the solid outsole shoe though - the translucent may attract some more dust). Fit - a bit narrow and long - if you have a wider foot the Primeknit is a better option but I would try in the store. Lockdown - heel lockdown is fine but I find my foot sliding forward in the shoe. Thus, I end up banging my toes on the front of the shoe at times and it would have been nice if the inner shoe had more padding there or if my foot was just locked in better in the mid and forefoot. In the defense of the shoe, I think any shoe with traction this good will probably cause your foot to shift inside the shoe. Support - A good deal of support around the heel plus a raised section of the outsole on the outer portion of the forefoot keeps your foot for tipping over or moving much laterally. Cushion - Fantastic in the heel area - great impact protection without being too soft. The boost thins out a lot in the forefoot and they use a hard stobel piece in between the boost in the insole so the forefoot cushion is pretty firm and responsive - I would have preferred the forefoot to be softer but it still has some compression to absorb impact. Looks - they look great, can wear them on and off the court no problem. Durability/Quality - I haven't had them for long so I can't say for sure but the build quality seems quite high (the outsole rubber does not seem meant for outdoor play though). There is also some coverage on top of the Primeknit on the outside of the medial toe to keep the material from ripping if you drag your toes. Other thoughts - the shoe is pretty heavy and you notice it on your foot so I would think some might find it bulky feeling.
I bought these shoes for marathon training and I am now on my second pair. They are the perfect balance of comfort for longer runs, combined with speed. I also now need only one shoe for training and racing! Brilliant.
ACE Tango 17.1 are the best trainers I've ever had. But luckily for me I overestimated size of my order since they come very small. With 1 size up they fit perfectly. Not made to play football though, but like the name says, these are a perfect match for fitness training and running.
Best basketball shoe I've worn to date. I usually go for a shoe that supports the ankle as well as overall comfort . I got a size bigger than what I normally wear and it feels great. Not too big or too wide which was something I was afraid of getting a bigger size.
The product is super comfortable due to the new addition of boost, and the tubular mixed with it really makes them feel great. Not as comfortable as ultraboosts because there isn't that much boost towards the front of the shoe but it is enough for great comfort. The leather used on these shoes are premium and wonderful and looks great with any outfit. Does include awsome reflective laces to top it all off.
I have narrow feet & this shoe is a God send. Because the center isn't attached to the bottom of the shoe, I don't have a problem with my foot sliding. The back does rub initially but after a 2 weeks of wearing them I don't notice
I finally worn out my second pair of supernova 7's and fancied an upgrade to the new supernova 9. Felt fine when I tried them on, but after a few miles running in them, I was feeling a discomfort under both my feet arches. Whilst there is huge amounts of cushioning, this was far too soft and resulted in my foot hitting the harder mid cushioning layer. felt like stepping on a stone every time I ran. I cannot run in these shoes, they are too painful. the old supernovas were great - i would recommend them to any neutral runner. the newest design is oh so terrible. £100 wasted.
I've been having lots of problems with basketball shoes lately (support, traction, comfort, style, etc) and these shoes FIX THEM ALL. Best shoe purchase ever. One caveat: half sizes stop at 11.5. I really, really want a 12.5, because the 12 is just too small, causing me some pain, and 13 is simply too big. Who agrees, 12.5 is needed?
Had to put my Boosts from last year to rest and upgraded to the PureBOOST. These are undoubtedly the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. They literally feel like they are part of my body. So lightweight, extremely comfortable and the design is so so cool. I have had multiple strangers compliment these shoes which is rare in lower Manhattan. I highly recommend these for running, cardio or just as your everyday go to if you are fortunate enough to wear sneakers to the office. :-)
Harden Vol. 1's are the best basketball shoes on the market. Perfect for guards, traction on point, cushioning like your walking on clouds, court feel perfect and looks absolute fire. Great purchase and the perfect basketball shoe to date.
Great for over-pronaters for long runs. The boost system does well in reducing shocks through body for each step taken in the run. With these trainers i can run a half marathon and do have any issue.s
The quality of this shoe is amazing. They leather is great and you can see the amazing width. There's a problem with size though. The shoe is just a little too big, longer than true sizing, but I wouldn't reccomend going half a size down because they are quite narrow. So I have a shoe that is slightly too big but if I went any smaller i might find them uncomfortably tight. I am female and always wear 7.5 mens. If you are male and know yourself to have wide feet this shoe might not be for you.
This is a terrible update of my favorite trainer. It is basically a completely different shoe from the Glide 8. The new version feels clunky. They added about a half inch of stack height to the shoe for some reason. The tongue is ridiculously long and does not stay in place. It slides way over to the inside of the shoe. I went through 9 pairs of the Glide over the past three years and loved them. Now Adidas doesn't have a normal daily trainer in their lineup, so unfortunately I will have to look at other brands.
I'm a die hard Nike fanatic, ever since I had started to use them I was hooked. Bought every kobe for the last couple of years . But I have noticed a serious decline in quality In the sneakers. I saw these a couple of months back and I love A Wigg so I picked them up as a novelty and as a get my feet wet experience with boost. It was the first time I played in an adidas shoe since the standard was using adiprene coushioning which I hated. May I say not only did this shoe beat all expectations and all of the good stuff I read on it but it made me a adidas costumer for life!!!!! Wow like what can I even say about this shoe that the add does not say . I have never had a more responsive , cushioned , form fitting , super comfortable shoe in my life! I will admit the aesthetics of the shoe are a bit....rustic but asides from the looks this bad boy is a hog . They were so great I bought my older father a pair; oh and he loves them too calls them the best shoe he's ever owned . This blows Nike out of the water and it absolutely crushed all the zoom units I once knew and loved , absolutely destroys any and all flyknit kicks and even tops my kobe 10; adidas, basketball shoes , you are doing it right. These are out of this world .
Previous models (pre-bounce) of Adizero Adios were my favorite running shoes for years (I still wear my old ones). I tried these, but they didn't feel as snug, comfortable and fast as the old ones. Something was off in where the arch sits too. Switched to Boston 6, which are great, if a little thicker in the sole. These, however, may suit others better, so I still reccommend.
These are just so very comfortable. My go-to running sneakers for several years was the Adizero Adios. I don't care for the new boost model of that shoe; something changed in the feel and support. Although these sit a little higher, they are my current fav; have 2 pair (and bought 2 more for family members). I'm not sure how the quality will play out. On my Adios, the mesh top eventually got holes, although it took a while. Will be curious to see how long the bounce sole has bounce.
I heard great things about these shoes and was looking forward to wearing them! However I'm 8.5 and that size was too large for me. The shoes were also quite wide without any arch support. So unfortunately I had to return them...
Comfortable, Good to hoop in, supports bigger feet (In width), Overall the look and the feel are a lot better than what I was expecting. The only problem in my opinion is whatever is glued or sealed onto the shoes is clearly done so and some threads stick out from the stitching on the inside.
Credit to adidas for finding new ways to use boost and give people a different feel in their kicks. Harden vol. 1's are less mushy in the heel and with the boost only exposed on the lateral side near the ball of your foot, you get a really comfortable almost bouncy feel right under the ball of your foot. Upper is really nice but does need to be broken in, but it's well worth it as this is a fantastic low top trainer.
At 1st I told myself that I was just going to purchase 1 pair of Harden Vol.1's & I copped the "Imma Be a Star's". It was a tough choice picking between the 2 versions. Once I received them I was so impressed that I had to get the "Away" Colourway too (so much for getting 1 pair lol). There's absolutely nothing I would change about this shoe. Aesthetically it looks dope, fits like a glove & on the performance end it's all thumbs up! Traction is great, cushioning is great & my feet feel well contained. As I said before, the 3 stripe brand is killing it this year R.I.P. other brands!!
Been loving these for ball, something I haven't said about a pair of hoops kicks for years. For me they work great in my sneaker TTS which usually runs half a size larger than what I wear for dress shoes. My feet are semi-wide, so the extra toe box room for me is awesome compared to other shoes I've balled in where they traditionally run more narrow. The best thing I love about the shoe is how stable it is. It also has a great combination and balance of impact protection, and court feel. Usually you get too much of one or the other, so this really does the trick perfectly for me. My only complaint are about the laces. I think going with a flat lace setup would make these easier to lace up and tighten overall.
