    Interested in the all white pair, still got a 20% off playmaker code. But I think I’m going to hold out. I think they are going to drop lower. Jumped the gun on the blue/red pinstripes with the 30% off code. I’m going to hold off on anymore. As I think they will get as low as $60 like the vol 2.

    Just got credited for my order with the corals and black/blues. Bought when they were $140 with my 30% off...went down to $105.

    Adidas CS was actually extremely helpful and fast. Got me my $50.96 back. Nike is in the middle of an existential crisis, meanwhile Adi Dassler's crew is winning hearts and minds.

    So pinstripes for $98, and blue toes and black/blues for $73.50 a piece.

    Gonna grab the corals as soon as another sale hits.
    Damn I was gonna pull the trigger on the corrals but thought i'd wait until they got below 75. Finesse move.

    For future reference, CS said that Adidas will credit you the price difference if you make a purchase and the price goes down within 14 days.

    Well there are no more Vol 2 size 9.5 on Champs so they had to have me ship them back for a refund. On top of that, the only place that has them is Eastbay. This sucks man, I was trying to have at least 2 pairs of Vol 2 but now I’m only down to one.

    I’ll have to pray my one pair holds up until the Vol 3 goes for deeper discounts.

    I have it on good authority that the vol 4 won't have boost :smokin lightstrike is my safe guess

    Speaking of things probably posted a while ago, I wonder if targeted boost would work. Like a forefoot boost section incased in lightstrike.

    To decrease the weight? Boost works best when it can compress and expand. Forefoot boost in the Rose 5 was pretty muted when it was encased in phylon. Lightstrike foam may work better but I wonder if it would mute the boost for little gain in weight. Plus it's likely cheaper to fabricate midsoles with one big chunk of boost than to create multi foam midsole...

    What I want to see is another segmented boost midsole like in the BYW X. I hope they update that model

    Hmm, not sure that's totally true. Boost is a bunch of pellets melded together so smaller boost cushioning would be cheaper, assuming boost is more expensive to produce than phylon/EVA/etc. Shoe companies have been doing foam midsoles forever and can do it in their sleep so my guess is it's cheaper to make a multi-foam midsole.

    my local outlet had the storewide 50% off lowest price tag during nike friends and family, i went back again and they still had 40% off. Check your local adidas outlet stores.

    Just purchased both black/white and white/black pairs. Excited to see how well these preform on court given the positive reviews.

    Been looking everywhere for a black/red pair but they are nowhere to be found in Australia. Live chatted with adidas Australia rep and all they did was link me to purchase from Eastbay... for $190US shipped. No thanks.

    Has anyone removed the strap? I'm really considering it since they provide no real performance benefit and I can better access the base of the laces.

    You don't need to access the base of the laces to get maximum tightness. Pulling on the top row of laces is enough to tighten the entire set.
