Usually, signature sneakers are reserved for flashy guards or forwards. Very rarely does a huge 7-foot center like Joel Embiid get his own shoe. Did Under Armour make the right decision?
The traction on the Embiid 1 performs well on clean courts, but some reviewers had issues on dusty courts. The outsole isn't too durable for outdoor use.
The cushion setup is responsive and comfortable. It also offers good court feel for players who are quick on their feet.
The materials aren't the nicest, but they perform very well on court and are very breathable.
As you would expect from a shoe for a 280 lbs center, the support is great and none of the reviewers had any issues there.
Overall, Joel Embiid's first signature shoe is solid all around and doesn't have any big weaknesses.
