Yet another adidas basketball shoe has arrived, this time it’s the adidas Light Em Up 2017.
The is similar in design to last year’s rendition, the adidas Light Em Up 2.0. However, like most models, there are some changes to the latest shoe.
The adidas Light Em Up 2017 features BOUNCE cushioning yet again. Visually, the BOUNCE uses the same lines on its midsole seen in the latest adidas footwear products that feature the foam, like the adidas AlphaBounce and adidas Dame 3. These lines also make the midsole and outsole look as if the two are connected, yet are distinguished by two separate colors (on this colorway at least). An aggressive form of herringbone is used underfoot, with seemingly enough space between grooves to channel dust (instead of it getting caught in the grooves).
The adidas Light Em Up 2017 utilizes a breathable mesh upper with a textile overlay on the lateral side of the shoe and fuse overlays in high wear areas like the toe. The lateral and medial sides are separate, allowing for a burrito-like tongue that works with the asymmetrical lacing system.
You can purchase the adidas Light Em Up 2017 now in ‘Multi Solid Grey/Running White’ for $100 USD here. No word on if other colorways will become available in the future or not but we will update you here at WearTesters.com.
