  1. Funky this BOOST thing but in tennis you should be on your toes most of the time not on your heels… LOL

  2. Right. What about the front part. Why not put the boost technology in the front part. Toes suffer a lot during running sudden change of movements etc. Adidas should think about it.

  3. Cool kicks! I wonder if it is available in other colors. I wonder how I can use it in the court. It should be paired with white and black kit.
