Pros - Solid traction, comfortable foam-based cushion, secure fit
Cons - Takes some time to break in traction
Quality: The upper is a synthetic nubuck with solid rubber outsole. It feels like a quality product.
Fit/Comfort: These fit true to size, but were a bit tight/snug around the midfoot when worn out of the box. After a few games, the upper broke in to a more comfortable fit. The cushion is responsive for a foam cushion and heal-to-toe transition is smooth.
Support/Stability: The secure fit of the shoe combined with the Sprint Frame offer good support. My foot was locked down with no slippage.
Traction: Full-length herringbone, took a few games to break in. The traction was excellent on a clean court. I did play on a fairly dusty court later and they really struggled traction-wise, but the court was pretty dusty.
Overall: This is a great guard shoe with quality materials/tech and adidas continues to improve on the Rose line from shoe to shoe. Personally, I'm not too happy with the price even with the slight discount I got on these. It is a great performance shoe, so if you're willing to spend the money, then these are as good a choice as anything on the market right now.
