Traction – 7.5/10
Cushion – 2/10
Materials – 9/10
Fit – 4/10 (This is based on personal experience)
Ventilation – 4/10 (not bad as the material need low ventilation)
Support – 8/10
Overall – 5.75/10
Traction – Good enough to get by, not the best for dusty courts. Clean and properly maintained courts the traction was great.
Cushion – Equipped with only a thin heel Zoom Air unit, the cushion is not great. Forefoot is firm and non responsive whatsoever. Cushion provided doesn’t reflect the retail price at all.
Material – Love the materials and they are as durable as they come.
Fit – Fit was decent in the heel once molded to your foot. Forefoot left much to be desired as the pods on the right shoe dug into my foot upon each and every wear no matter how hard I tried to break them in.
Ventilation – There isn’t much and that is what the Foamposite material requires in order to properly mold to your foot. Can’t complain as this was an intended feature.
Support – Plenty of support is offered both in the arch with the carbon fiber shank as well as the pods featured on the shoe. Foamposite is typically sturdy and supportive as well so the heel and toe area are built tough to withstand beating on court and retain its shape to offer optimum support.
Overall – Great looking shoe with quite a few performance features yet under performed in every way. My advice, stay far away from these if you planned on taking these for a spin on-court… casually they should be fine as any shoe would be.
