Compared to previous models, the on-court performance of the D Rose 9 is disappointing. The narrow traction pattern picks up a lot of dust and requires wiping after almost every play. Adidas decided to replace the Boost cushioning with the cheaper (but very well-performing!) Bounce technology. The materials look nice but might be a little too soft for a performance shoe. The most problematic part of the D Rose 9 is the very wide and loose fit that doesn't provide the lockdown and containment needed for quick cuts and crossovers.
