BOOST

Boost for days.

I’ve tried different cushioning setups. I’ve had some good ones. I’ve had some bad ones. But none of them as comfortable as Boost. Don’t get me wrong, some of you might prefer the Bounce cushioning (also by Adidas), some of you might prefer Zoom, Air (by Nike), or plainly a different setup.

I have tried Boost on my D-Rose 5 (semi full length/ can’t fully feel it that much), and my John Wall 2s (heel part only), but nothing compared to when I tried using the Pure Boost 2017 with it’s full length Boost setup.

I copped the white colorway coz it’s so clean and hella sick.

Nothing fancy. Plain and simple.

You can see the arch support on the inner side of the pair.

The upper is made of circular knit. It’s a bit stiffer than Primeknit or Flyknit but, it’s still soft compared to most materials out there on other pairs.

On the inside, there’s an internal heel padding for added comfort. There’s also those things on the outside which are for external heel ventilation (which I think acts like a TPU heel counter as well).

As you can see, there is no insole. That’s just a thin layer of fabric inside so that you could feel the cushioning better.

The Lacing was inspired by the Yeezy 350 and 750.

IS IT WORTH IT?

100% YES.

Hands down the most comfortable pair I’ve ever had.

PRICE:

PHP 6,500/ USD 122

(I got this at a discounted price of PHP 3,900/ USD 73)

Even if it wasn’t on sale, the regular price isn’t as bad as it sounds when it comes to sneakers these days.

Socks

Socks + Your game = Does it make a difference? 

For me? Yes. It does. How? Let me explain. 

When you’re on the court and it’s starting to heat up (literally), your whole body starts to sweat. Including your feet. You don’t want your feet to sweat, it feels uncomfortable. That’s where the socks come in. These aren’t your ordinary socks. These are basketball socks that are made to prevent sweat from interfering with your game. 

There are tons of basketball socks out there, but I’ll be talking about the ones I use when playing.

  • Nike HyperElite Socks:

A. Comfort-  3.5 out of 5. 

B. Fit- 5 out of 5

C. Ventilation- 2.5/3 out of 5

Overall- It could have been the best if it wasn’t for the ventilation of the socks. To me, that was the problem. I don’t know if you guys have the same problem, but I certainly thought that they could have made some adjustments to make it a bit better. 

  • Adidas Team Speed Traxion Crew Socks:

A. Comfort- 4 out of 5

B. Fit- 3.5 out of 5

C. Ventilation- 4.5 out of 5

Overall- The ventilation was better than the HyperElite’s but the fit was not as good. I like socks that are tight around your feet and legs.

  • OBBO Tempo Socks:

A. Comfort- 4.5 out of 5

B. Fit- 3 out of 5

C. Ventilation- 4 out of 5

Overall- Comfort was really good but it did lack a whole lot in the fit department. Ventilation was above average. It’s just the fit man, c’mon. 

Total overall: I prefer the Adidas Team Speed Traxion Crew Socks. It’s comfy and snug and provides good ventilation. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t buy the other socks, it still depends on what is more comfortable for you.
