Who should NOT buy the Pro Model 2G Low from Adidas

Though it looks classically bulky, it is actually quite narrow inside. Those who have wide feet are better off getting another model such as one of the more recent Hardens.

Quick guards who are for responsiveness and court feel won't be disappointed, too, but they sure can find better options such as Adidas Dames.

Dependable traction

The rubber outsole of this classic basketball shoe features good old herringbone, so its bite is going to be great in all directions.

Hoopers talk about how the traction never lets down on the court. 

Plush cushioning

The midsole is retooled with Bounce that feels really soft and comfortable underfoot. It's also quite responsive.
