The adidas AlphaBOUNCE will debut in ‘Core Black/Iron Metallic/Clear Grey’ for both men and women for $100 on adidas.com starting June 15, with more colorways available online and at select retailers on June 20.

Adidas uses the ARAMIS motion-capture system to assess the tension of different fabrics.

Insta copped these. That sole on the rainbowish pair looks more rubbery than the spotted pair. 

 

Just realized these were two different pairs. I wonder when the white pair will drop...

This is definitely riding the current high Bounce cushion is on thanks to the Lillard 2s. Really curious how the "Alpha" version works.

Thing is, Bounce cushion actually litters many running shoes on Adidas' outlet so it isn't anything new but the AlphaBounce definitely got me curious.

Plus $100 is a nice price. Design is nice and gon' need a PrimeKnit version.

@RFX45 here's my quick review on it, sorry I had posted it in the boost thread before this one was created

 

-----

 

Hey guys, I just got the alphabounce from the adidas store at the mall across my office. Sorry no pics, had to get in and out of work haha.

 

These are definitely a cool shoe. The faded print midsole is a nice touch. I got my adidas TTS at size 10. I do 9.5 in NMD and 10.5 in UB (because they are tight and I have a wide foot). I say if you have a narrow foot you could probably do .5 down for a snug fit. The general shape is long and narrow. I could do .5 down for length but it was painfully tight.

 

They are comfortable but the name is a bit deceiving. I would put these more in the roshe class, with a thicker/more sturdy upper. The sole/midsole is firm and not bouncy at all...and not really in the same classification as any boost. Tbh it's closer to the firmness of a tubular sole. However, it's overall a comfortable shoe that could be rocked casually or used for workouts. It was comfortable and stylish enough for me to cop without hesitation. My disclaimer would just be that if you are expecting any kind of boost feeling (because the name is "bounce"), you'll be disappointed. Its a solid, comfortable shoe that's great in its own right, just possibly not what you're looking for if you want a soft, springy feel.

In for a pair. Looks great. Only concern is the durability and traction of the outsole.
post #19 of 1498
Seems like everyone is copping to be ahead of the hype, which in turns creates the hype. These are smokin.gif though. I'll take a pair without the print on it.

For Sale:

 

Kobe 8 SS "Christmas". Size 11, 9.5/10 Condition. $150.

 

*Will trade for a size 12*

 

PM for details.

They are a great shoe to me, but they are not similar to the UB at all...in terms of feel. Only in silhouette. They are a much firmer sole...and funny enough they don't really "bounce"

 

However they are still comfortable and if I were doing athletic activities other than straight line running, I'd rather use these than UB because they are much more supportive and firm.

I wonder how this compares to lunarlon? I wouldn't think Adidas would undercut it's boost money train but if it's close to lunarlon that would be really nice. I hope it's not too close to the Tubular sole because to me those are terrible. I have the tubular X primeknit and they are the worst . Thanks @FallenZ3ro for the review!

Thanks for the info. Definitely will grab a pair. Based what you've said, these will be my secondaries for running though.

Bounce isn't really suppose to replicate Boost, its one of those cushions that you have to actually run or jump in like the Lillard 2s that everyone has been raving on for basketball.

That also explain the $100 retail price.

I don't have a pair yet but try running in them and see how it feels.

The two-toned pair is fire, have the others sitting in my cart now debating if I should get them. Will make a trip to adidas store on my lunch to see them in person. A PK version will open the flood gates to this new model and in a hurry
