    I got mine for $55 with a coupon & gift card that I had, but after wearing them , I think $100 is already a great deal. Wish they would drop either USA color-way.

    Played in these again and everything is great. Not sure how there are traction issues? I play at a University Rec Facility which has nice floors and is clean, and my traction has been top notch.
    Also no HEEL slip at all, although I do use all the eyelets. Support & cushion fantastic.
    Again, hoping for a USA colorway to release.

    I went true to my Adidas size (10) which is half a size down from my usual Nike / Jordan size (10.5). Fit is really good, I could probably have squeezed into a 9.5 but my toes would have had literally zero breathing room.

    The Issue 1's do look a bit longer, not so much because of the foot space, much more so because of the huge protruding heel. Adds several cm's or about an inch of extra length. This is my only issue with the shoe, mainly for aesthetic reasons, as it does not hinder performance.

    Overall great balling shoes and the Bounce sole only gets better once broken in. Also the shoes look fire in person, I got the Symbiote / Venom version and have been getting a lot of compliments whilst rockin' them.

    I've noticed that, although adidas and Nike have the same US size for a pair of shoes (e.g., US 8.5), they show different UK sizes: Nike UK 7.5 vs adidas UK 8. I am really curious if this is really what makes us usually go down half a size with adidas.
