Adidas Dame Certified 2.0 Review

Pros:
Stop on a dime type of traction
Improved structure and stability
Cons:
Thin forefoot cushion lacks impact protection
Breathability is not good

Performance of the Adidas Dame Certified 2.0:

Adidas and Damian Lillard continue their non-signature shoe releases with the Dame Certified 2.0. It may not be a signature model, but the traction performance plays like it is. It's reliable on clean and dusty courts. The cushioning is Bounce foam, and it feels responsive. The impact protection could be better, but the shank provides plenty of bounceback. The material usage improved on the 2.0. The shoe has more structure and stability but sacrifices some breathability. Reviewers mention the fit is accommodating, but the shoe does fit slightly long. The width also feels spacious enough for most feet. The support and lockdown are solid, and it gets better with more playtime. The Adidas Dame Certified 2.0 is another step in the right direction for Adidas budget models. The traction shines on this pair.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. The outsole is plenty grippy.

The wavy herringbone traction pattern stops on a dime. It performs well on dusty courts, too.

The midsole has some impact protection, but it's better for responsiveness because the forefoot feels thin.
