Adidas Exhibit A Review

Pros:
Lightweight
Has everything you need for support
Cons:
Stable cushion sacrifices impact protection

Performance of the Adidas Exhibit A:

Reviewers agree that the traction on the Adidas Exhibit A is very reliable. It performed consistently on both clean and dusty courts while needing only minimal wiping. The Lightstrike cushion leans more towards the firm side of things, but it is lightweight and responsive. There's a small amount of impact protection in the heel, but the setup is clearly catering towards players the favor court feel. The materials perform well on the court, they are comfortable and feel good to play in. Support in the ankle area of the shoe is a strong point. Coupled with a wide base for lateral stability, the Exhibit A is a very supportive shoe. Overall, Adidas has delivered a solid performer with the new Exhibit A. It features everything you could want for traction and support. On top of that, it's built well and positioned at a great price of just $110.

The Adidas Exhibit A is good but is just below the top-tier. The traction gets the job done, the cushion is responsive, and the materials perform well for the quality.

If you are a wide footer you can still go down half a size. The shoe bed is very wide. It’s like this shoe was made for our type of feet.

When the courts are clean, the traction is reliable. There's minimal dust pickup, so an occasional wipe is needed.

A diamond traction pattern has a solid bite on both clean and dusty courts. It's a good kind of consistent.

On clean courts, the diamond pattern performs well. On dusty courts, the traction picks up quite a bit of dust. The performance also improves after a break-in period.

The cushion provides lightweight stability in the forefoot and a slight amount of impact protection in the heel.

The Adidas Exhibit A has a full-length Lightstrike midsole that feels firm and responsive. There is some impact protection, but it isn't very prominent.

The full-length Lightstrike feels similar to the Harden Vol. 4 but with much better step-in comfort. It's low to the ground and has a decent amount of compression.

I'm happy with the materials. Especially the choice to use a more comfortable half-bootie upper. They play well on the court.

It's mainly a thin mesh upper. The quality isn't the best, but it works for the price.

As always, Adidas has a solid base of the shoe to help with stability. This time around, I also really liked the heel support. It is minimal yet effective.

The heel support is nicely sculpted. Your heel is locked down, and the wide base covers you laterally.

There are well-placed fuse overlays on the shoe that help to contain your foot.

These seem to run a tad bit large, so going true to size with a wide foot should be ok.

Even with slightly wide feet, I was ok going down half a size. If you have wider feet, you may still want to go true to size.
