Summary of 2 Expert Reviews:

Pros:
Super durable materials
Bouncy, low-to-the-ground cushioning
Cons:
Minor heel slippage

Performance of the Adidas Pro Model 2G:

How does the updated version of Adidas' classic Pro Model perform in 2020? The traction is top-notch and sticks like glue on clean courts and needs little wiping on dusty courts. The Bounce cushioning is low-to-the-ground with nice, bouncy feedback and solid impact protection. The patent leather upper is super durable, supportive, and gets comfortable after the break-in period but there is no ventilation. Overall, the Pro Model 2G is a modern performance basketball shoe with retro looks that performs well across all categories and will work for players of all positions.

I was pleasantly surprised. For $100 retail, the Adidas Pro Model 2G performs really well and is a super solid shoe that will work for most player types!

Traction worked well outdoors and when I tried it on my wooden floor it had a really nice bite. I am a little bit worried about dust because of the tightly-spaced traction pattern.

The Bounce cushioning is low-to-the-ground but offers enough feedback and bounce to make the shoe feel fun.

The full-length Bounce midsole is pretty damn nice. You feel very low-to-the-ground in the forefoot but the heel is very bouncy and provides good impact protection.

The patent leather takes a little to break-in but once enough creases have formed you will have no issues. The material is not breathable at all.

The patent leather and plastic torsion plate provide decent support. The heel could have been a little flatter but overall stability was not an issue.

My foot was locked down on lateral movements but I had a little bit of heel slippage.

There was zero movement inside the shoe and no heel slip due to the higher cut.
