    Adidas Bounce, which I believe is on Dame's shoes is good too. A little stiffer, Boost is pretty spongy. I have the Dame 2 that has BOOST technology, they are quite comfortable.



    I think these shits were One Fiddy though.

    Yes but hopefully his personality will have the BOOST. We need Dame to be able to go hard!

    I think the bigger question should be does BOOST help in basketball. If it does matter, then I would argue he should have included it to make the shoes last longer.

    I have run in BOOST shoes for quite some time (10+ pairs) and they certainly maintain their cushion much longer than the average foam does. They do cost more, but if you look at the extra mileage they give you then it breaks even.

    I'm sure dame is more worried about initial price. I'm sure growing up his parents could never afford the $200 shoes so he's made it his mission to keep them cheap.

    Dame's shoes are never more than $110 dollars. Pretty reasonable in this day and age.

    Very reasonable. And it cost probably $30 top to make the shoe lol

    I'm still pissed those Rip City colorways from the Dame 2 I think are so hard to find.

    ...yeah, they already offer this with the miAdidas customizer options, so why not just throw in another upgrade option?

    I don't think the majority of the consumer's will look at it that way though.

    Customization is not a trim level. It's just choosing colors.

    ...no, they also offer different material/textiles so it wouldn't be too difficult to add custom midsole options to go along with the rest of them. For those that don't care about the price difference and just want the best possible performance materials in the world I am sure it would pencil out for Adidas in the long-run. In a perfect world Adidas would also offer a WIDE version for their shoes as well :smiley-eureka:

    I guess this is as good a spot as any to post this randomness. I was cruising around the streets of Tokyo on googlemaps and came across this:
