Performance Review: Adidas DRose 6
|Synthetics with some mesh mesh underlay for heat to escape.|
|The lining has been treated with a velcro-type material which somehow promotes "grip" from the inside.|
|SprintSkin upper was used in this colorway of DRose 6|
|Boost foam in the forefoot and heel.|
|I love the heel Boost which is large enough and provides impact protection.|
|Although translucent rubber was used, it is pretty good.|
|The reflective parts help contain the laces as well in the midfoot.|
|There is a hidden eyelet inside near the throat of the ankle and tongue for a more tight fit.|
|The X-Bar torsion plate is still present like in the DRose 5.|
|A soft TPU containment cage can be seen in the heel.|
Price: 4/5Let's be honest, it is too pricey for some. The shoe cost Php 8,495 at your local sports store. The shoe's tech specs and performance does justify the cost so I guess it is still fine. If you dig my review and think that they are a good purchase, then by all means go ahead and cop and hopefully you enjoy them as well.
Overall, I enjoyed playing in the DRose 6. The Boost foam really does its job in providing good impact protection. While foot containment and impact protection for explosive players like Derrick Rose is the main theme this year, the containment part is a bit of a let down due to the roomy toebox which even for me who prefer some space find it too much. However, this could be prevented if you would be able to try them in store and choose your size appropriately. The materials as a little give or stretch since it is synthetic so basically the fit will be final. If you are an explosive type of player who loves driving in the lane, a high-flyer, or loves to grab rebounds who plays in whatever position will likely enjoy the benefits of the Boost foam. You can grab these at Adidas stores for Php 8,495.
