Durability concerns

Some sneaker fans have noted that the shoe feels cheaply made. In fact, one tester said that after a few months, the shoe had begun “to fray, and the edges of the material on the tops and sides are starting to discolor.” Another also remarked that the leather tab at the back of the shoe snapped not long after purchase.

Adidas Postmove Mid vs. Adidas Forum Mid

The Adidas Postmove Mid is often compared to the Adidas Forum Mid, which is another basketball-inspired shoe. One even described it as “a knockoff of the Forum without all of its technical features.” 

While they look similar, the Adidas Postmove Mid is made of lighter recycled materials. If you prefer a lighter shoe that costs less, the Postmove Mid will serve you well. 

On the other hand, the Forum Mid, which uses higher-quality materials, is heavier and narrower.
