It is very safe to say that the only difference between this shoe and the original Pro Spark 2018 is the height of their collars. The low version also has Cloudfoam in the midsole and herringbone on its soft and flexible rubber outsole. Its textile-and-mesh upper is also reinforced with synthetic overlays and ornate stitchings on the fore lateral side.

Cushion.  The Pro Spark 2018 Low’s one-piece midsole features Adidas’s Cloudfoam. It is reinforced by an eco-friendly ortholite insole to deliver plush cushioning and ensure a responsive ride.

Traction. The pliable rubber outsoles of these Adidas basketball shoes feature full-length herringbone, which is a pattern that rarely lets anyone down performance-wise.

Length and Width. The low version of the Adidas Pro Spark is reportedly true to size. There will be no sizing issues with this one.

Lockdown. To ensure a fairly supportive ride, the Adidas Pro Spark 2018 Low has an anatomical fit around the ankle. It also has an effective lacing system for fit adjustments.

Comfort and ventilation seem to be the priorities of the Adidas Pro Spark 2018 Low. This shoe’s upper is made of a combination of textile and mesh. To make it more durable, the upper is reinforced with synthetic overlays and some decorative stitchings on the fore lateral side.

This model looks a lot like the mid-top Pro Spark, except of course for its low collar. It sports a largely monochromatic appearance. It proudly displays the brand’s iconic Three Stripes on the lateral side. It has soft grooves around the ankle, giving it a strikingly distinct aesthetic.

Pairing this shoe with many types of casual outfits and activewear won’t be that much of a problem; its rather straightforward look make it so easy to match with almost anything.

The Adidas Pro Spark 2018 Low is available in a number of colorways such as the following:

  • Collegiate Royal/Footwar White/Grey Two F17
  • Core Black/Bright Blue/Core Black
  • Core Black/Core Black/Core Black
  • Core Black/Footwear White/Gray Five
  • Core Black/Scarlet/Grey Four F17
  • Footwear White/Core Black/Gray One F17
  • Grey Four F17/Metallic Silver/Core Black
  • Grey Three/Collegiate Navy/Grey Two
