    The heel in the oreo colour above looks way lower than the blue/pink one, wonder what's up with that? Definitely prefer the higher heel

    TTS for me, I usually do a size 10 in all ball shoes, maybe half size down depending on the shoe though. But the fit was perfect for me with some good lockdown and no heel slippage.

    Do you prefer the Boost in these or the Vol 2 more, particularly in the forefoot?

    My gripe with that court is the rims aren't 10 feet they're closer to 9

    the 3 is more low to the ground, 2 has more boost and impact protection, i liked both but i think the 2s have more boost in the forefoot but you can't really feel em in both tbh

  7. I can definitely feel the boost in the forefoot of both of my pairs, and I’ve had them both since Feb of this year and have played around 3 times a week consistently since then. It helps that I have two pairs to extend the life, but they both still feel good in the forefoot and lost only a little bounce. I guess that’s why they moved to Lightstrike.

    Hmm maybe it's cuz I'm a heel striker so I didn't notice much, thanks for the correction. Still would recommend the 3s over the 2s but if the 2s aren't too restrictive and tight, they would be the top dog, maybe I shoulda tried a 10.5 instead of a 10.

  9. No problem man, I wasn’t trying to correct you or anything because other people have said the same thing! I was just relaying my experience but everyone has their own for sure. Hunting for a pair of 3s once the 4s drop and those prices go down. The problem is the 3 is selling better than the 2 did, the 2s sat like crazy (except for the California Dreamin really).

    So bought another pair of the Vol 3s for $53 on eBay, the black pair with the black Boost, probably my fav Boost ball shoe model ever.

    Damn, DS? I'm over here waiting for the Harden 4 to drop so I can scoop up a pair of the Harden 3s for the low. Can't believe they're still going for retail or close to retail.

    Looking forward to some performance reviews on the 4s. Have really enjoyed the 1-3s and curious if the 4s will work for me too.

    Oh, in that case I can't wait until that black pair goes on heavy discount. It's at $112 right now on Adidas.com. Could've been had for $75 online at Nordstrom Rack like a month ago. Should've hopped on that deal then but was hoping for an even bigger discount :lol:

    Stupidly sold my car with my bball bag in the trunk. Guy said I could meet him the next day and get it, but then stopped responding like a dickwad. Are those throwback rockets anywhere online? Might just end up getting them on stockx if not.
