The Adidas Boost You Wear (BYW) X is a modern performance-basketball version of the old Adidas Feet You Wear line. The herringbone traction pattern performs very well out-of-the-box, but starts to fray and pick up dust quickly. Some reviewers didn't like the decoupled feeling of the forefoot and heel: The uncaged Boost cushioning in the heel is very soft and comfortable, but the forefoot is much firmer and responsive because the Boost is completely caged here. Materials are premium and comfortable and support is surprisingly solid.
Overall, the opinions on the Adidas BYW X are split, some reviewers feel like they are Adidas' best performance basketball shoes, other feel they are flawed and overpriced.
