Ever since I tried on the boost energy running shoes, I couldn't wait until Adidas put them into the DRose line of shoes. I have been buying the Rose line since inception and have always loved how the hugged the foot and had exceptional traction but always needed a little more cushioning since I'm a bigger guard (and getting older). Simply put, the Rose 5 Boost is everything I ever wanted in a shoe. Please note that the sizing is different that previous Rose shoes bc the toe box is rounded off more than previous models. The Rose 1-4 all had a more pointy toe box so depending on your foot shape, youd have almost no wiggle room in the toe box. If you sized down half a size it would be too small . W the rose 5 you can size down half a size and still be able to move youer toes around a little. I went with my normal sz 11 and found the length to be perfect with some space to move my toes around. When I went down to a 10.5 I had less space in the toes overall and still some space to spare length wise. I highly recommend trying your normal size and half a size down so you can decide based on your preference. Cushioning is outstanding with full length boost. Somehow Adidas was able to keep that plush bouncy feel wout making the shoe feel unstable. Excellent responsiveness as well as a super smooth transition from heel to toe thanks to full length boost (not targeted like some companies ) Support: The round pads that protrude up the ankle are pretty stiff initially but as you play the warm up and flex just the right amount. The most impressive yet unspoken support structure runs along the sides of the shoe above the midsole. It really keeps my foot from sliding which really need when I cut hard. Traction: This wouldn't be a drose shoe without excellent traction and these do not disappoint. The rubber used is nice and soft and the grab the floor even on slightly dusty floors. Exactly what Id expect from a Drose shoe. I love this shoe and can't wait for more colorways to drop.!!
MiAdidas rose5. Excellent shoes to play basketball in. Comfortable shoes ever. Performs great on the court. Traction is awesome. nothin bad to say about the shoes. ADvice tho if your feet are wide, you might want up to .5 your reg shoe size. BOOST tech "IS FOR REAL... CHANGES EVERYTHING" TRACTION COMFORT PERFORMANCE 110%
These shoes felt just as comfortable as my D Rose 4s, and the sizing was spot on the same. These shoes, however, have changed my perception on basketball shoes. I do truly believe with the right shoes you can perform better now. With the D Rose 4s, I was about 2 inches from touching rim. I got my D Rose 5s for Christmas this year and was able to now touch rim, even almost getting my first knuckle over it. Never before have I worn shoes that actually attribute to performance, but these shoes go above and beyond by giving you stability, comfort, and the added benefit of a higher vertical leap.
Not the greatest ankle support. But for those of you who want a quick, easy, durable and not to mention supportive ankle strap this is it. I've tried some ankle braces before, some where too bulky or too thin without providing support. This strap provides all of the elements that I was looking for in an ankle strap. It is lightweight, not too bulky, supportive and really easy to wear and take off. The only thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars is that it is a little overpriced. Paying $60 for a pair sounds a little pricey. I think $20 each for these straps sounds more reasonable.
After playing in Crazylights, and loving them, for the last couple seasons I wasn't sure if I really wanted to switch shoes. I decided to try out the 5s and I am very impressed! At first I thought the boost was not going to make a difference in energy and play, but it changes everything. I feel very secure in the shoe and never slip. The traction is amazing. My only problem is the ankle supports. They sometimes dig into my ankle when driving and can cause pain. Other than that I am very happy with this shoe.
I recently purchased the d rose 5's in the red and blue and so far they are amazing. At first i was a little skeptical about the size because I am a 9 but they fit like 9.5's but not to worry after you play and break them in, they fit perfectly. Another note is that they are extremely comfortable with the white cushion on the heel and they are very very breathable. The traction is also amazing and my only concern is that they scuff pretty easily but then again i am a point gaurd -13 years old 8th grade, playing and wearing them everyday to practice/school/games etc. Overall they are a amazing shoe and are the best d rose yet.
Very good shoe. Much more comfortable than my old Nike's. They would make my feet hurt after a while, which affected my game. To all the non-beleivers out there, Boost actually works. It amazing. Would definitely buy the 6 when it comes out.
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!
When I hurt my ankle playing in the Kobe's, my peers and my coach said that it would be best that I get an ankle brace until I get better. Naturally, I got the ones that D.rose wears because he is my favorite player and these are the ones he wears. But I still had my doubts because I thought they would be uncomfortable, limit my mobility, or take away from my game. And when I played in them, I saw that I was wrong. They were super comfortable, didn't take away from my mobility or my vertical, and kept my ankles protected. I was very satisfied with them, so much that I will still wear them if my ankle is just bothering me. Great ankle braces. At first I wondered why they were priced so high. 60 dollars for both??? But now I understand. I feel like i payed for quality.
This is awesome. I got it yesterday at an Adidas store and it is perfect size. There is no need to buy a size smaller or bigger. Speedwraps fit the size of your shoes. It really does prevent your ankles from rolling and keep them protected. This is only $30 and is cheap compared to other ankle braces. It is also super light. Best Adidas accessory ever and I seriously recommend it to all of you guys looking for ankle braces.
I saw a web interview that Derrick Rose did and he spoke about how much that he loved the Adizero Speedwrap Ankle Brace and since I already bought the Adizero shoe, I figured I'd try it out. I had a grade 2 ankle sprain about 5 months ago and haven't been able to explode as well as I could prior to my injury. This ankle brace helped a lot and now I can't imagine playing ball without it
This shoe is definitely the most comfortable shoe I have in my shoe collection. In my collection, I have the Kobe Venomenon, the KD 6, KD 7, the Lebron 12, and the Kobe 9. I have never purchased a Adidas model basketball shoe, because of the reviews of the past Rose collection. This shoe is a must get, its more comfortable than any other Nike shoe I have hooped in. The boost is just 1/3 of the shoe, you will feel completely locked in with the ankle support and the traction is pretty amazing. I would definitely recommend this shoe over a lot of other shoes.
Love these!! They are extremely light and not so bulky opposed the first edition of the SpeedWraps, which I purchased also. Not only does these give great support, but your much more mobile and can slash to the court much quicker and feel confident you not going to sprain your ankle. They fit great with the Adizero DRose shoes as well. Must have!!
I've had to wear ankle braces or tap for almost 8 years now, so i know my way around braces. in terms of comfort speed and visual aesthetic these braces are the top of crop. Ive been taped ive worn, elastic support and light weight lace ups and light weight figure eight wraps, but in my experience these are the best. The fit is exceptional and it makes me feel secure and confident in my abilities, basketball is 90% confidence anyway, like most things its a mental game
Bought these in conjunction with the right foot one. As it says on the back of the ankle brace, adidas adiZero Speedwrap, Super light weight ankle protection. Good durability. Be aware though, that the near bottom part of the hard plate-protected side might crease a little, but does not affect performance. Good lockdown, secure feel in the shoe. Recommended for all players who need a good, light ankle brace.
