The Adizero Feather II is a light shoe that does not feel flimsy. Climacool technology built into the shoe’s ventilated upper is a new addition that enhances the smooth ride and breathability. Adidas’ dual-density sprint frame construction is built to bolster heel support and prevent pronation. Weartesters loved the ultra-light weight—some said it felt like wearing a running shoe. “My feet felt very fast in these shoes,” one weartester said. The shoe’s next best assets after its feather weight are its low-to-the-ground ride and ventilation, which made it a pleasure playing in hot conditions. Flex point, cushioning and the absence of an outsole warranty (the Adidas Barricade does come with a six-month outsole warranty) were the relative knocks on the Feather II. If you place a premium on cushioned comfort, particularly on hard courts, then look elsewhere. Those looking for a very light-weight performance shoe that is low to the ground, however, will do well with this option.
