  1. Awesome review! Being able to try all three shoes FlyWade 2, Jordan 2012 and the Rose 2.5 which one performs better playing a guard position? Thanks dude…

  2. Awesome review, Being able to test out my three top peformance shoes FlyWade2, Jordan 2012 and Rose 2.5 which one of these can you say is the Top performance shoe overall? Thanks dude….

  3. I bought the adizero rose 2.5 it is great it is light weight and has pretty good ankle support without a doubt you should buy them by the way i play both gaurd positions

  4. Hey Nightwing i have a problem about the top bit of the shoes where the ankle support is. With my Hyperdunks that bit digs into my ankle so will i have the same problem with these and what would you recommend?

    1. From personal experience it does not. I do not own a pair of hyperdunks but I do ball in a pair of 2011 hyperfuses (which is similar). I always have a problem with Nike shoe collars because even though they are made to be lightweight, they always annoy me because they dig into my ankles or achilles tendon. (I have that problem with the hyperfuses all the time). I own the adiZero Rose 2.5 high energy colourways and the shoe collar is just amazing….the materials are very plush and the GEOfit collar really give you comfortable support. When you lace them up tight they conform to the shape of your ankles but they do not irritate you. From personal opinion I feel that adidas makes better performance shoes through design but they do not seem to last as long, thats why I wear Nikes for outdoor ball, but always Adidas for indoor competitive games

  5. Nice review, Nightwing. I also have these and I completely agree with the all the pro’s you listed. I absolutely LOVE these shoes. The only problem is that they have started to cut the inside of my feet up pretty bad. It’s happening on the arch of my foot, closer to the ball. I’ve narrowed the problem section of the shoe down to the Sprintweb where the insole meets it. I was just wondering if you had heard anyone complaining of the same thing.

  6. Hi the shoe looks sweet but when I put on the shoe the right shoe’s left side tightens up and the left shoes right side tightens up
