Today, adidas Basketball announced the Pro Bounce and Mad Bounce, two new basketball sneakers for the 2018-19 season.
WearTesters first spotted the adidas Pro Bounce when a PE for Joel Embiid surfaced online. Now, the shoe is official, and it will be worn by adidas athletes Donovan Mitchell, Zach LaVine, Kristaps Porzingis, Chiney Ogwumike, Candace Parker, Kyle Lowry, Nick Young, Jaylen Brown, Kelly Oubre Jr., and Brandon Ingram. It appears that the Pro Bounce will be replacing the Boost-equipped Crazy Explosive sneaker line that many of these athletes wore in previous seasons.
Built atop full-length Bounce cushioning midsoles, the Pro Bounce ($120), Pro Bounce Low ($110), and Mad Bounce ($100) are designed for court feel, comfort, and versatility in movement. The Pro Bounce upper will utilize adidas’ ForgeFiber, a TPU-coated yarn, at high force zones for better support. Force-mapped zones on the outsole, which uses concentric circles for its traction pattern, should enhance traction while an articulated comfort collar should offer support without restriction.
The adidas Pro Bounce and Pro Bounce Low will release in a variety of colorways on September 1. The adidas Mad Bounce — a shoe that will be worn by Jamal Murray, Thon Maker, and Donovan Mitchell — will release on October 1. Look for these upcoming sneakers at adidas.com and adidas retail stores.
