    A $120 is basically a budget model for us. You can't really get anything cheaper than that. Too good. Much cheaper. There are a few shoes that are really good that are very cheap but that's kind of the bottom of the spectrum nowadays. It's a really good performer. I'm very impressed with Adidas. The only thing I would say to watch out for is the traction on dust. Everything else seemed really, really nice. It is a little puffy a little bulky. But other than that it's a great performer.

    Overall, Marquee Boost didn't disappoint me. Actually it surprised me. I really like the silhouette of the shoe. My go-to shoes right now. I like the overall performance of the shoe, and not too heavy too.

    The adidas Marquee Boost is definitely one of the more comfortable basketball shoes currently available, especially at its price point — ranging between $120-140 depending on the colorway. However, I did not love the shoe as a whole. I still find them to be a beautiful looking shoe but not one I’d keep in my gym bag. Traction consistency, I feel, could have been a non-issue had the herringbone been of the thicker variety. Fit needs a bit of work as well. The whole “too much cushion” thing is my personal issue, so I can’t really fault the shoe for that.

    If I only took a week to judge the adidas Marquee Boost, then scores would be a lot different — but patience is a virtue. The irony of this modern take on an old school hoop shoe is that it breaks in beautifully as one would – a process I was happy I made it through. This may not be the best sneaker for me to continue playing pick-up on iffy courts, but with rec league starting soon on better floors, I’ll be looking in this direction unless something upcoming proves to be a better option. If you don’t mind a little break-in to get to an all-around good performer that can alternate on and off court, I say go for the adidas Marquee Boost.

    I highly recommend these shoes. These have everything you could ask for in a basketball shoe. Great cushion, good support, good lockdown. The fit may be a bit of an issue if you have a wide foot or a narrow foot, but as always try them on. And once you find the right size, you won't regret it. Definitely a really good performer on court.
