Nike Adapt BB 2.0 Review

Pros:
Convenient self-lacing system
Cons:
Very heavy shoe
Cheap materials

Performance of the Nike Adapt BB 2.0:

At $400 the Nike Adapt BB 2.0 is the most expensive basketball shoe currently on the market. Is it also the best? The herringbone pattern and translucent rubber work very well on clean courts, but if there's only a little bit of dust present you will need to wipe consistently. The Cushlon foam and Zoom Turbo in the forefoot give you a bouncy and responsive ride similar to the Kyrie 6. The materials get the job done but they feel cheap, plasticky, and are super heavy. The electric self-lacing system is super convenient to use but it can be hard to find the perfect setting as you are not able to adjust the lacing systems to fit the shape of your feet. Overall, the Adapt BB 2.0 is only recommended for sneakerheads who can spare $400 easily - there are much-better performers out there for a fraction of the price.

Overall, I found that the Nike Adapt BB 2.0 was better than the original Adapt BB, but I still don’t feel that these are necessarily for me.

Traction, cushioning, support, and fit work well. But the cheap materials, the weight, and the bulkiness made it so that I couldn't enjoy playing in the Adapt BB 2.0.

The cushion and support are fantastic, but the traction can be inconsistent on dustier courts. Despite this, I still enjoyed playing in the Nike Adapt BB 2.0.

The traction is nuts on clean courts, but the translucent rubber picks up some dust on dirty courts.

On a clean court, the traction is great. On dusty courts, it picks up a lot of dust and causes a little bit of slipping.

On clean courts, you will have no issues, but the translucent rubber didn't work very well on dusty courts which means you need to wipe consistently.

The Zoom Turbo setup is low profile, springy and ultra-responsive.

The Zoom Turbo has a nice bounce and good impact protection. Court feel isn't great as you feel pretty high off the ground.

The cushion is the main highlight of the shoe. It reminds me a lot of the Kyrie 6 with the use of Zoom Turbo.

The full-length Cushlon foam with a Zoom Turbo unit in the forefoot works well but is not as bouncy or responsive as the Zoom Turbo in the Kyrie 6.

The textiles and TPU materials get the job done, but this shoe is heavy as hell because of the electric components.

The materials are stiff in the beginning and take one or two days to break in. For $400, the materials feel pretty crappy.

The upper is made of ballistic mesh. It feels like plastic at the start but becomes softer as you play in it.

The plasticky-feeling Mesh materials are very disappointing considering the $400 price point but they get the job done performance-wise.

There isn't a lot of stretch in the materials, which helps with support and durability. The lateral support is also good.

The support is really nice thanks to the large heel counter, wide base, and the lacing system that works as a midfoot shank.
