    I love these… I did not even want to test them since I thought they were too similar to the Crazyquick but to my surprise they were just difference enough.

Profile of the Adidas D Rose 773 II

Released within the same year as the Adizero Crazyquick and D Rose 3.5, the Adidas D Rose 773 II takes cues from these two shoes. The midsole and outsole is from the former; the upper’s design is from the latter. Because of the shoe’s affordability and the lack of SprintFrame, it’s not only easy on your pockets but also easy on your feet.

In the recent years, brands release inexpensive basketball shoes packed with high tech materials. For example, the fifth signature shoe of Rip City star Damian Lillard shows off the comfort of the Bounce cushioning. James Harden’s third volume of his Adidas line, for its part, features a minimally caged Boost cushioning for superior responsiveness.

Performance

Cushion. The cushion is made of EVA and is molded into segmented pods, akin to the setup of the Adizero Crazyquick. This technology is called Puremotion+, and it provides controlled flexibility to the foot.

Cushioning is minimal; but because of the PU insoles, some shock is absorbed and comfort is kept close. A Torsion plate is embedded in the midfoot.

Traction. A multi-directional herringbone pattern can be found on the outsole of the D Rose 773 II. The direction of the pattern differs by area. The toe-tip's patterns are vertical while the ones on the midfoot are horizontal; this setup helps in making quick lateral stops.

Fit

Length and Width. The shoe is true to size but runs narrow from the midfoot to the toe box. It is advised that you fit the shoe before purchasing at your local shoe store.

Lockdown. The D Rose 773 II’s fit is attributed to the shoe’s narrow shape, the SprintWeb material on the upper, and its external TPU heel counter that binds the shoe to the feet when laces are tightened.

Material

A ribbed synthetic material is used on the forefoot; SprintWeb is used on the midfoot to the heel. This Adidas technology is a constructed synthetic material that is light, breathable, and durable. There are perforations all over the upper, which allows for maximum breability.

The midsole is made from an injection-molded EVA while the outsole uses a non-marking rubber compound that is safe to use indoors.

Style

Breathability and lightness seem to be the two key points that the D Rose 773 II’s aesthetics are designed around. The synthetic upper is strewn with perforations. The lateral side panel features the D Rose logo on the ankle surrounded by the diamond-cut spiral detail. The cut continues to the medial side providing structure and ventilation.

In some models, the Three Stripes on the heel and the lines on the Puremotion+ midsole has colors that contrast the rest of the shoe, giving it a visual pop. The Adidas Equipment logo can be found on the tongue and the tip of the toe box.
