Best Foot Forward: Adidas J Wall 1
Last September, we witnessed the unveiling of John Wall's signature shoe and from the looks of it, we all thought that it would use the Boost foam. However, seeing this model, I wonder why did they used Adiprene+ in the cushioning? Then I realized, it's a good move from Adidas because we already saw the Boost being used in the running line and it was on the higher price range. This decision of Adidas using a different source of cushion would help the consumers have a signature shoe that is not that expensive. I'm not saying that Adiprene+ is not good, it is good as it has been widely used in their running line and has been proven to be an ideal choice for runners which gives a propulsion effect.
Going back to the shoe's appearance, I love the materials used in this model. It is mesh which would promote air circulation although not that crazylight 1 type breathable but good circulation. The material is soft and no break-in time is needed and since it is mesh and is not heavy so it would be a good choice to those who want a light shoe.
The shoe is now available at Adidas Trinoma for a retail of Php 5995. I got this for a discounted price since using the Adidas 3-stripes card on my birthday month entitles me to a 20% off so it is a good deal for me. I will be performance testing these so stay tuned to Analykix for my performance review.
