As the scores indicate, we were pretty much in agreement with our weartesters about this women’s shoe from Adidas. It’s light and breathable and provides adequate support. The EVA, a synthetic foam throughout the midsole, is fairly thin, so cushioning is sacrificed a bit, especially around the forefoot. But that keeps the weight down and your foot closer to the court for excellent responsiveness on quick movements, which makes the Ivy a smart pick for advanced players. The ClimaCool ventilation system effectively aerates the shoe, a necessity during long matches or workouts. For added style, there are small crystals in a set of the shoe’s eyelets.
