Li-Ning Ice Blood V2 Review

Pros:
Impressive traction for the price
Support and lockdown keep you secure
Cons:
Picks up dust easily
Cushioning can feel low

Performance of the Li-Ning Ice Blood V2:

The Li-Ning Ice Blood V2s most consistent and praised feature is the traction, especially considering the shoe's price. The cushioning is responsive but low to the ground. There's also not much impact protection. Reviewers agree that they felt locked down and well-contained laterally during play. There were no issues with heel containment either. The fit and materials are comfortable. The shoe feels soft around the foot. D'Angelo Russell's second signature shoe is an excellent pick in the budget shoe market. There aren't many options that offer similar performance for the price.

You cannot get more performance for a $99 basketball shoe. The Li-Ning Ice Blood V2 is a fantastic performance model. The traction plays well on clean courts, you can take the shoe outdoors, and the cushioning feels outstanding.

Shoes cushion isn’t the best but the court feel is amazing. The shoe is very shifty I only bring this shoe out when I wanna cook someone and play a shiftyer play style if thats even a word lol. I just replaced the insoles w gameday pros so we’ll see if that helps with the forefoot cushion as there really is none without a different insole

You might get heel slippage if you have high arches. The forefoot feels contained because of the materials, but the lacing system doesn't keep the back of your foot locked in.

The midfoot section is tight due to the added arch support in that area. I had no issues with the fit because of my foot shape.
