Adidas D'Rose 3.0

With the Rose 4.5 out and 5.0 will be in few months. DRose 3.0 made this list. If you still see a pair, it should be around $90-$110 now at your local store or if there's a Adidas Factory then it'll be cheaper there.

What to like:

  • Herringbone Traction
  • Heel lock-down
  • Sprint web and Sprint Frame

Herringbone traction helps you stop at full speed in any direction. Works very well on clean and still good on slight dusty courts. With its Sprint Frame, heel lock-down keeps your kneel from moving inside the shoe and Sprint Web keeps your foot tight and gives you control on your movements.


Adidas Crazy Light 2

CL3 is already out but don't count its little brother. CL3 weigh at 9.3 and CL2 at 9.5. There's no much of difference when it comes to weight and performance.


  • Three-layer SPRINTWEB that is fused to a nylon textile base.
  • High grade injection-molded EVA ensures the most lightweight midsole through consistent density throughout.
  • Asymmetrical midsole layout aligns with internal beams to help limit ankle roll over.
  • Variable height 2.0mm-2.5mm rubber to ensure ultimate court grip during any movement.
  • Longitudinal grooves in the forefoot and heel help for enhanced stability.
  • miCoach ready.
  • Wt. 9.5 oz.

The adiZero Crazy Light 2 is very light and can really perform with its Spiral pattern traction which will help you change direction at full speed. Contrary to some of the people say that because its light it might not have enough support, with SPRINTFRAME its light while it maintains stability throughout the foot. SPRINTWEB does its job. The fits so well on your foot and not worrying about movements inside.
