micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
Overall comfort is very good. I did feel a blister coming on after around 60 minutes of play but this normal practice for new boots. I've played one game and so far scored 1 goal, make of that what you will. If I can keep up that pattern I'll be the next Jamie Vardy before you know it.
As soon as I opened the box...... Love at first sight. Just on initial looks I was wow'd, but once on feet I was even more impressed. Judging by an online review which wasn't based on a general release(which was also primeknit) I went half size up, which I wish I didn't do. I had to send these back and re order my size. These run TTS and fit like a glove. Boost runs all the way which means you're feet are in heaven. The White colourway is so fresh that didn't have the heart to ball in'em & ruin'em so I got the Red colourway. Can't wait for future colours, well done adidas!!!!!
These are by far the best low top basketball shoes I have ever worn. The Kobe IVs came out quite awhile ago and have finally been surpassed by the Crazylight 2016! The cushion is outstanding and full length and is even more responsive than the D Rose 6 Boost. Traction is outstanding indoors and outdoors and I never have to wipe. The only suggestion I would make is for people to go a half size down because they do run slightly long. As a Houston Rockets fan I am excited that James Harden will be wearing these instead of his old Nikes that had no cushion and felt like bricks. Also looking forward to his signature shoe when it releases as long as it has full length Boost.
I have been looking for a new pair of shoes made specifically for squatting. I have been using flat solved shoes for years and wanted to try the raised heels for high bar and front squats. The Powerlift 3 shoes fit the bill for my needs. I like the slight heel raise and how it affects my squat performance. The shoes are well made and fit well but seem to be a bit narrow in the toes. (I wear size 12d and ordered 12d). I have only used them for one front squat training session thus far, so time will tell as far as shoe longevity is concerned. Still, at this point I am very pleased with the Powerlift 3 shoes. I will likely only use these shoes for high bar squats, front squats and similar exercises.
The Lillard 2 runs a little big so a half size down may be in order. I havent played in Adidas since the Gilbert Arenas shoe but I have to say these are easily comparable to anything on the market right now. Full length cushion that cant be killed by stepping on a tack....and for 105?? Plus the materials are top of the line. They were so comfortable I bought another pair to walk around in. I just wish 13.5 was a little more common place.
These boots are just what I was looking for. You can no longer find plain black football boots and these were perfect. They were soft leather and very comfortable. I've worn them a few times already and they are still like new
These are great shoes. Really comfortable and exceptionally light. The only thing I would change was that the slightly off-white colour on the primeknit detailing would have been better as pure white which would have been more striking. Other than that they are pretty amazing.
All you need to know is this shoe runs true to size and Boost is super comfortable. The graphics are dope I love the red I rock these with my Manchester United jerseys home and away. I have a wide foot and these fit perfect no need to go size up or down. Plus these are slept on honestly they should be sold out by now but that's why I love em, because no one else has em.
The shoe is simply awesome I bought these shoes for my daughter who plays to a high standard she has owned the last 2 models which were great.But these have raised the bar beyond belief. The full length boost is different class as is the comfort & the continental sole give superb traction. There is no other shoe to match this shoe. Great work guys
I was excited about these...until I finally laced them up to play basketball. I bought a 10.5 & a 10 to ensure i got my true size. Even with that, they just arent a good basketball shoe for a few reasons. 1) they're too clunky. meaning they just look a few sized too big even when youre wearing your true to size. 2) not as light as advertised. these didnt feel crazylight as the name would suggest. 3) heel slippage...constantly. I laced them up tight and my heel always managed to slide up a just a tad. Here are some of the things I liked or thought were ok... 1) great traction. one of the best ive experienced. 2)comfort was pretty good from heel to forefoot 3)and the quality is nice However, the bad outweigh the good in my opinion. I own about 10 pair of adidas shoes (UB, PB, stan smith, etc) and the Crazylight 2016 leave me feeling a bit disappointed; a feeling I rarely have with Adidas. I've worn them once to play basketball and would return them if I could. However, I dont think thats an option. Having said all this, I still like Adidas as a product and this shoe may work for some, but not all.
One of the best shoes I've run in for awhile. Fresh out the box comfort. Good support, while remaining lightweight. Anyone who regularly gets adidas knows the 1/2 size adjustment (U.S.) so the fit was perfect. I've had a hard time taking them off and instead leaning towards buying a second pair.
First, I love these shoes! Best basketball shoes that I have ever played in. Boost is absolutely amazing. I was fortunate enough to get the Primeknit All-Star and they are so comfortable. Yes they run a half-size too large. I have PTTD, and use insoles and a brace. I can play a full session in these and not hobble around the day after. Amazing. One complaint is the quality. I play hard in these indoor and they are showing wear. The soft part around the X strap is pilling. The X strap is coming unglued from the frame. And the knit at the base of the tongue on both shoes are shredding apart and coming undone. Nothing that impacts the performance of the shoe, but they could have done a better job on their premiere shoe. That being said, I will never buy the other brand again. So much shoe and tech for an amazing price, great job!
I'm not a fan of the aesthetics of the shoe with the triaxle design that looks like the Star of David, or how the BOA system looks. However the BOA is functionally great being able to dial in tightness and fit, as well as being comfortable. The pitch of the heal is bigger than the adipower, so for those with mobility issues it does help. The style grew on me which to me was the only downside, but the performance and comfort overall are great. The BOA lacing system also has a lifetime guarantee from BOA Tech.
So it's been almost a year I've been doing weightlifting, and since there was a nice 40% off Canada day Sale ($135+tax), I decided to treat myself. Coming from the Adidas Adipower, I didn't know exactly what to expect from a different lacing system AND a bigger heel height. One week in, I've had a good feel of the shoe, but I don't know if it can break in more. So the BOA system is very convenient to put on, and in terms of tightness, it's at least equal to the traditional laces and strap. All in all, it's an upgrade in my opinion. Then there's the heel height. This will vary between people because of their body mechanics, but my lifts definitely saw an improvement, with my squat greatly improving and my pulls staying the same (some people get pulled forward). The one issue I've had here (my hypothesis) was that since the heel height is bigger, the horizontal length of my foot is shorter, but the shoe stays the same size. So if you wear say a 9.5 Adipower, get a 9 of this one. It also explains why the shoe isn't as comfortable, because I have to tighten the shoe too much. All in all, it's a good pair of shoes, but I would never pay the absurd price some sites sell these for.
Love the look and overall style of these tennis shoes. Having not tried them on prior to online purchase I did find them to be a rather snug fit and it is necessary to open them wide at the neck by freeing the laces before inserting the foot. I also wear Aircast ankle supports so half a size larger than normal might be the way forward. Once on, however, they look fantastic!!
Not a wide foot friendly shoe, will have painful breaking in time in the fore foot area. If you have wide feet, its hard to say go up half a size cause if you do, then the shoe is to long and you will have a lot of dead space in toe area. I went up half a size in case my true size was to small for me. Overall it is a good shoe and upgraded so much than last year!
These boots are great. They are super comfy and great to play in. The only bad thing about them is that the silver metallic paint on the bottom of the boot eventually wears off but other then that they are grey
This shoe has everything a guard or even big man would want perfect traction and cushion. The shoes always have great traction even on the worst courts and for me that is very important, one other adidas did well in these is the support great ankle support for a low top shoe
Have been Adidas Copa Mundial user for over 20 years. Was skeptical before the purchase. Played with it a few times now. Great control and feel, super light, easy to clean. Exceeded all my expectations.
