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.
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.
High quality shoes. Very comfortable and has good support all over. This shoe does tend to run narrow. I have wide feet and even with a half size up from my true size, I need to go up 1 full size for feet to feel comfortable. Feels like you can move in any direction.
Do not order these shoes online. the fit of the shoe is really weird and my big toe was hurting right when I put them on, I'm returning them, and the boost in the shoe feels like a normal cushion, the boost in this shoe was way too hyped up
No secret by now how comfortable Boost is...so I already expected 5 stars there. What I'm most impressed with is the grip on the translucent outsole. I do a lot of cutting and direction changes on the court and I felt secure the entire time. This was my first Primeknit pair of sneakers and I really dig the fit and flexibility. This won't be my last pair for sure.
This is by far the best pair of basketball shoes I've worn to this date (I've had Jordan28 / 29, D Rose6, Curry 2.. just to name a few). The cushion is a bit firmer compared to DRose 6, but it gives you better court feel, and feels lower to the ground. These are perfect shoes for guards. Love it! Highly recommended!!!, Thanks Adidas!
I actually love the shoe and it's by my favorite athlete/basketball player. My only problem is that it's too narrow for wide feet. Although I've only walkyd around in it for an hour I guess you can say I haven't really broken it in. Hopefully that's the case.
This is by far Adidas best basketball shoe to date. You get the cushion of the Crazy explosive in the heel and the crazylight feel in the forefoot which is Perfect. Superb traction and amazing all around comfort from the soles of your feet to up around the ankle area. D Rose is definitely going to be back in MVP form because of this shoe. It isn't the highest priced bball shoe for no reason...
I have gotten the D Rose 7 Multi-Color about a week ago. Great shoe, the design is uniquely Adidas. A bit narrow though for my foot, as I heard. So, when I bought them, I got .5 bigger, size 13.5. Got extra space for my big toe, but was still narrow and a bit tight around my foot. Feels comfortable on the court, haven't played a full court performance game yet, but just running and shooting. Cushion in shoe gives the boost in leaping ability, and no pain in take off. Make sure to wear right performance socks with this shoe. Grip of shoe on court still needs a bit work like all the other D Roses, but still good. Can't wait to see Derrick Rose play in them this NBA season on the Knicks.
The best shoe of the year, hands down. Everything is just great from cushion, fit, lock down, support, and traction. It would be perfect if Adidas make a low top Drose signature like they did with the 2s and 3s.
the boost is amazing, it provides great cushion and feels great while not lacking in court feel. The traction is the best I've used, I've played in the curry 2, kyrie 2, Kobe 9, and the Jordan 28 to put in perspective. It's beastly. It won't last on out door courts tho. The fit is just right and I recommend going true to size. There is just a little dead space by the toe in true to size and if you don't like that go down half a size but it's not a problem at all. Lockdown and support is amazing (it's made for d rose come on it has to be to protect those glass ankles. Overall it's a great show and I'm calling it this early it's the best shoe for the 2016-2017 basketball season I love it.
