Adidas outsole construction for J Wall 2

Basketball guard athlete John Wall is described as an aggressive and no-nonsense player of the NBA. To match his playing characteristics on the court, the outsole of the Adidas J Wall 2 is designed with a non-scuffing rubber compound. It does not leave marks on the floor especially indoor gyms.

The herringbone pattern has soft, pliable waves, which delivers a good court grip.

However, many reviewers recommend the shoe for indoor use only. Though the rubber grooves deliver amazing court performance with no slippage, outdoor courts can be rough and can destroy the rubber outsole quick.

They also suggest clean indoor gyms for playing. The outsole accumulates a lot of dust and the player has to wipe frequently to avoid injuries.
