PROS:

  • Well-balanced Bounce cushioning

CONS:

  • Dead space in the toe box
  • Slippery, even on clean courts

Summary of 4 Expert Reviews:

The Pro Bounce 2019 is one of Adidas' more affordable models but the performance didn't convince the critics. The traction responds slowly on clean courts and is too slippery on dusty courts. The materials look and feel cheap in-hand, but do a decent job on foot. Many sneaker testers had issues with the fit, especially the roomy toe box was problematic. The highlight of the Pro Bounce 2019 is the well-balanced Bounce cushioning that provides a great mix of court feel, responsiveness and impact protection. Overall, this shoe is not recommended by experts - there are much better shoes out there for $110.

The Pro Bounce 2019 is a good shoe but doesn't live up to the Pro Bounce 2018.

Traction, cushion, and textile choice are all very good but the break-in and fit of this pair were difficult to overcome.

Don't get it! Traction is trash. Even for $100, this shoe is too expensive for what you get.

I can't really recommend the Pro Bounce 2019 because of the cheap materials and bad traction.

The racetrack-type herringbone traction pattern provides a lot of grip on clean courts but collects a little bit of dust on dirty courts.

The materials are breathable and flexible. Unfortunately, the materials are way too soft and don't provide enough containment and support for performance basketball shoes.

Wide base, low profile, and internal heel counter will keep you from sliding off the footbed.

Lateral containment was really good, you feel low-to-the-ground and laterally stable on cuts.

Fit wasn't very good for me - the upper didn't provide a lot of lockdown and there was a lot of dead space in the toe box.

The outdoor performance wasn't drastically worse as indoor performance but the rubber in the heel will be gone quickly.
