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.
let it be known I was here before the hypebeasts.
also they need to drop those white pairs. those are
I just copped. price was right and I like the look. Interesting article on Engadget about them.
I just copped also. Had an Adidas Giftcard, my remaining balance came out to 1 cent. Very interested to see these in person.
Yah I am curious if any stores got these yet?
I got mine today at the adidas store in the mall. I would guess that the adidas stores all got them today?
Get them now before ye wears them jk
I'm all in. Can't wait to cop these poverty yeezys.
I went ahead and copped on ADC. I'm digging these and the price is right.
im witcha on that...got a feeling these might get hyped how the ultra boost are
how do they fit?
@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.
Seems like everyone is copping to be ahead of the hype, which in turns creates the hype. These are though. I'll take a pair without the print on it.
I gotta wait till Friday. I just hope I can cop to run in, and they are as good as the ultraboosts.
