    For $140, it is a little pricey in my opinion especially due to the materials that they used on the shoe. But in terms of performance-wise, I would say that these are great performers. They do the job, you, know, in every single aspect. If you, guys, are curious, I definitely recommend picking up a pair especially if money isn't an issue to you. They're great performers on-court like I enjoyed it. I just wish that this was a low because I really didn't like that restrictive feeling around my ankle.

    Adidas is tightline for the Marquee Boost is the most comfortable shoe in the game. The cushion and the materials both together and did a madness when it comes to comfort. And everything else follow too. For it to get 8.4, non-signature, right after the Pro-Bounce, yeah.

    If the Beard was the Beard balling in the 80s this would be his sig shoe. The Marquee Boost plays almost exactly the same as the Harden except it’s a high/mid with different styling. If you buy a BMW and swap out the exterior of the car, that car will still feel like a BMW since the actual guts of the car haven’t changed. The same thing applies here; the V3 was already a great shoe except for a little heel slip for me but with the Marquee, I get the almost the exact same cushioning, similar traction but with a whole new upper look that actually improved the fit for me. This is one of those shoes that I forget I’m wearing when I’m court but at the same time I get the look good feel good effect and at the same time I’m getting everything I could want out of a shoe.

Designed with a classic look packed with updated technologies, the Adidas Marquee Boost is made for speedy players. It boasts the Boost cushioning for an ultimately comfortable ride and protection against impact. The outsole features the tried-and-true herringbone traction pattern for superb grip especially when the player is on his multidirectional footwork. These Adidas basketball sneakers are released in December 2018 and retails at $130.

Cushion. The Adidas Marquee Boost features a full-length Boost midsole. The thin forefoot foam delivers court feel while the thick heel foam absorbs impact.

Traction. The outsole of the Adidas Marquee Boost features a zonal herringbone traction pattern. Depending on the colorway, the outsoles of these Adidas shoes come in either gum, solid, or translucent rubber. The translucent rubber is reported to attract a bit of dust, but it’s not something that minimal wiping cannot fix.

Length and Width. The Adidas Marquee Boost reportedly runs true to size for wide-footers. Wearers with normal-sized feet are advised to go down half a size for a one-to-one fit.

Lockdown. To secure the foot, the Adidas Marquee Boost uses the standard lacing system. This allows wearers to achieve a customized tightness and fit.

The upper of the Adidas Marquee Boost is made of breathable mesh with textile lining for durability. The molded collar provides enhanced comfort around the ankle.

The mid-top silhouette of the Adidas Marquee Boost has a classic vibe that is reminiscent of the Adidas Streetball series from the 90s. Aside from its awesome on-court performance, the Marquee Boost is voted by most wearers as a headturner in the streets. It is best paired with short pants and a loose tee.

The Adidas Marquee Boost is released in a number of basic colorways:

  • Black/White/Red
  • Cloud White/Core BLack/Solar Red
  • Grey Six/ Core Black/Trace Khaki
  • Off White/Cloud White/Solid Grey
  • Red/Metallic Gold
