    I always see these same shoes in the marshalls near me, but never in my size. Life is nothing but pain and suffering.

    Y'all tripping...the marquee boost 2 killing the 1.0.

    1.0's look like they couldn't figure out if they were a modern equipment shoe or a retro originals shoe.

    This 2.0 is a nice *** flavor.

    Adidas has got to stop trying to make hoop shoes for off the court though. Unless it's a high end collab, it just won't sell.

    Do we know yet if it's a lifestyle or basketball shoe?

    Also, can't find anywhere selling a size 14... Rip

    I dont like that, for the last couple years, adidas adheres so closely to a universal design language for almost all their ball shoes every year. I could see this year everything is gonna be dad shoe-like paneling. Last year everything had almost the same traction, they all had a simple design vibe, and a couple shoes had that lilliard side piece. In 2016 when they had their all killer-no filler lineup, the crazylight boost, the crazy explosive, the rose 7, and the harden 1 all had a different look and catered to different play styles. When all the shoes have a similiar vibe and performance aspects, I think it lowers the interest and distinctiveness of each shoe. But maybe thats just me.

    Case in point:

    Believe it or not, 4 and 5 are different shoes, the pro next and pro adversary(which has a mid that looks like the other mids). I have to leave out the tmac and the nxt lvl since they do have enough of their own look.

    I said "I have to leave out the tmac and the nxt lvl since they do have enough of their own look." It does have a side piece and the same traction, but it looks distinct from the others.

    Although if you flipped it around on the medial side, with the 3 stripes, it has the same vibe.

    I'd say pic 2 is a mashup between Marquee Highs and NXT LVLs.

    It's not uncommon at all, every brand makes takedown models of their highest tier shoes. But yeah, I get your point.

    Whats different here is that most of there basketball lineup is very similiar, not just a few takedown models. Also nikes takedowns are usually different enough from the sigs that they dont seem too similiar to them, like no one would think the witness is too much like the lebron 16.

    Fair point. To play devil's advocate, the adidas takedown designs are very un-original/lack innovation but I think it's because the basketball design team is probably a lot smaller than Nike's basketball design team.

    adidas basketball design team shouldn’t be lacking. They acquired ex-Nike designers like Marc dolce and ken link and others.

    Adidas is the 2nd biggest sneaker company in the world, they have enough designers and could hire plenty more if need be. They dont have to make all the shoes look the same. It was an intentional decision from the start of planning for the shoes for the season. Smaller companies like anta and brandblack are able to make most of their shoes look distinct.
