Super Boost technology of D Rose 7

The performance of the shoe comes from the Boost technology in the midsole. It is thick on the heel and thin on the forefoot. The benefit of this is a smooth heel-to-toe transition that does not compromise court feel.

Though the shoe model is said to have full-length Boost, the part directly below the forefoot is firmer than the one in the heel. The benefit is to have more court feel and responsiveness.

The Boost right under the heel is softer. This setup delivers excellent impact protection and bounciness.

Adidas impressive outsole setup

The outsole of the Adidas D Rose 7 is made of solid rubber, and it features a full-length and multidirectional herringbone pattern.

The spacing between the grooves helps prevent frequent wiping during gameplay. The rubber grooves are thin and pliable, which provides superb court grip both indoors and outdoors.

There is a recessed area in the outsole that runs from the heel to the middle of the shoe. It aids the athlete by providing a better flex while keeping the rest of the outsole in good grip on the court.

Simple, stable lockdown system

For a secure lockdown, the shoe has a simple lace-up system with round laces. The desired fit can be achieved by adjusting the shoelaces. The padding in the inner parts of the shoe and tongue helps secure the ankle and provides comfort to it.
