Summary of 4 Expert Reviews:

How does the 2019 version of Adidas affordable team model, the Pro Bounce, perform? The performance of the herringbone traction pattern is divisive: some reviewers loved it, others complained about slipping out - especially on dustier courts. The Bounce cushioning got very good grades by all reviewers and provides a great mix of court feel, responsiveness and impact protection. The quality of the materials is really good, especially at this price. They are comfortable and provide a ton of support and lockdown. Overall, this is a solid performer that should work across all playing styles and positions.

I really like the casual look and the performance on clean courts. Just make sure you don't play on dusty courts with these.

The Pro Bounce is a solid shoe but the traction just didn't do it for me on dusty courts.

The traction was reliable on all courts I played on - even some pretty slick ones.

The traction works well on clean courts but it's a bit slippery on dusty courts.

The traction felt inconsistent. On clean courts, linear movements are good but I did have a few minor slip-ups on lateral cuts. On dirty courts, you will have to wipe constantly.

Breathable, flexible, lightweight, and comfortable. We are just a little disappointed that there is no forged fiber this year.

Nearly 100 percent mesh with minimal fuse and synthetic suede overlays. Doesn't feel or look premium but I like it.

The full-length textile Mesh feels good in-hand and is very comfortable on-foot.

The full-mesh upper is implemented nicely and provides the containment you need. The materials are probably one of the best feature of this shoe.

The TPU barriers on both sides provide great stability on lateral cuts, and the lockdown of the heel counter and lacing system are top-notch.

The stable and wide base, massive outriggers and TPU overlays on the side provide excellent support.

For some reason, on my right foot, I did experience a little bit of heel slip. The forefoot lockdown was good and there was no side-to-side movement thanks to the TPU barriers on the sides.

The traditional lacing system lets you customize the fit to your feet and midfoot / heel lockdown are excellent.

Overall, the fit is pretty nice but the materials in the toebox bunched up a little bit on my pair.
