It’s 100 bucks, uses a seamless FusedMesh upper, and rides on Bounce cushioning. Sound familiar?
The adidas Mad Bounce is a takedown of a takedown — allow me to explain. The Harden Vol. 1 tooling ditched the Boost, replaced it with Bounce, and added a bunch of leather to create the Harden B/E (right now, still an overseas exclusive, but you can check out our Harden B/E performance review for more information).
Then, adidas took the Harden B/E, tossed the low-cut leather and mesh upper, replaced it with an engineered mesh upper that, from the pictures, looks very interesting, and sat it atop the Bounce tooling created for the Harden B/E.
Now, we have the adidas Mad Bounce, a budget basketball model that should offer a quick and low-profile ride. The seamless upper features areas of support and stretch for a custom fit, and a solid rubber outsole for traction.
If you’re interested in the Mad Bounce you can find it on adidas.com for $100 now. Oh, and it’s available in triple black.
