    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.

    I just copped also. Had an Adidas Giftcard, my remaining balance came out to 1 cent. Very interested to see these in person.

    I got mine today at the adidas store in the mall. I would guess that the adidas stores all got them today?

    I went ahead and copped on ADC. I'm digging these and the price is right.

    @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 :smokin 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.
