Best Foot Forward: And1 Empire Mid 2.0
So what's up with and1 now? For this segment of Best Foot Forward, here is what I found out regarding the Empire Mid 2.0.
A fresh take on a baller favorite. Step into the Empire Mid 2.0 and you’ll be ready to go. Reduced weight and a redesigned upper lets you focus on your crossover while your kicks move with you.
• Stitch-less no-sew construction for comfort
• Mesh panels reduce weight and increase ventilation
• Asymmetrical toe increases support
• Full-length airbag reduces impact
Upon wearing the shoe, all I can say is that it was really a low ride. Almost every brand is into the lightweight trend and they make sure their shoes are breathable by providing good amount of airflow and you can see the images below the perforations or vents around the shoe's upper. Although I'm not sure with how the cushioning will feel, what I'm sure is the traction will perform like a beast. I bought this from Olympic Village Trinoma for a discount price of Php 2995 from Php 5295 during their last sale and I will be performance testing these so watch out for my detailed review.
