    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.

    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.

    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.
