For $160, this is not the best shoe in this price range. But if you are a fan of a more responsive Boost cushioning or you can find this shoe on a discount - I would highly recommend it. This is a great performer and one of the best team models Adidas has put on the market in a while.

The performance of the Adidas BYW 2.0 was really good. If you want a comfortable, supportive shoe with a nice cushioning setup and you don't mind the slightly too expensive retail price, then go for it!

The herringbone traction pattern is really, really good - no matter the court.

The rubber herringbone traction pattern should be pretty good indoors, but the grooves are pretty narrow so be prepared to wipe off dust.

The full-length Boost cushioning is partly caged and is a really good balance of court feel/responsiveness and impact protection.

The full-length Boost midsole is heavily caged but feels incredible. Reminds me a little of the Harden Vol.3. Checks off everything I want about a cushioning setup.

The textile and mesh upper with different synthetic/felt overlays is not exactly premium but gets the job done just fine.

For a $160 shoe, these are not the materials you want to see. The Mesh upper is thin, soft, and gets the job done, but feels a little cheap in-hand.

No heel slippage and no side-to-side movements on the footbed. The wide base adds to the stability, and the plastic shank helps with the torsional rigidity.

I felt laterally contained thanks to the wide and stable base. No issues at all with support and lockdown.

I didn't have any dead space in the toe area and the materials conformed to my feet really nicely.

The rubber is super soft and tears off quickly if you play outdoors.

Even if you are a wide-footer going down half a size should be okay.
