Adidas BYW Select Review

Pros:
Comfortable cushioning
Consistent traction
Cons:
Materials feel cheap
Noticeable drop in stack height

Performance of the Adidas BYW Select:

Adidas' BYW Select has solid and consistent traction. It performs well on clean courts and only needs occasional wiping on dusty courts. The cushioning is a combination of Lightstrike and Boost. It's comfortable, provides impact protection, and feels responsive. The material quality is low, but the performance is not affected. The lacing system and midsole setup keep your foot contained and stable during play. Fit on the shoe is also accommodating. Overall, the Adidas BYW Select is a well-rounded performer. It provides a bit of everything.

The traction performs well out of the box on clean courts, but the performance falls off with dust buildup.

The shoe has a fantastic cushioning setup. You can't go wrong with Lightstrike and full-length Boost.

The Lightstrike carrier foam and Boost are a soft cushioning setup. It has decent compression but not much bounce. It does most things well.
