adidas AlphaBounce Instinct Performance Review


Around the end of February this year, a group of adidas AlphaBOUNCE Instinct showed on the Internet, which impressed the upper surface with cool texture. When the shoes actually released, it was not only the full pattern of the upper. In the meantime, the midsole are also great.Bounce cushioning was used for the midsole and the upper was designed using adidas’ ARAMIS motion capture system with Forged Mesh to support where needed ,anyway, this type pf shoes just can be description   stable and flexible.

We will check it today .

For the box, it is simple ,just black box  with logo, and there is the info of the side of box too .


Material :

The adidas AlphaBOUNCE originally made its debut back in 2016. Since then, we’ve seen adidas release plenty of new renditions of the shoe. Starting from adidas AlphaBOUNCE Beyond, the adidas followed the design of last mode, so the AlphaBOUNCE Instinct not only for the running, also we can play it on the basketball court,and it also for daily life training, adidas AlphaBOUNCE Instinct continues this setting, FORGED Mesh exhibits strong support, with a thick lining for a comfortable wrap. Suitable for use in the upcoming autumn and winter seasons.The original AlphaBounce had a Forged Mesh upper. The AlphaBounce Instinct has a Forged Mesh upper.but it is different for this kind of material,the AlphaBounce Instinct is a stiffer Forged Mesh, much like what was used on the Dame 3, it is will be more stability and flexibility. So if  you tried the Dame shoe, you must know this feeling .





In terms of flexibility, in addition to the clear wavy lines on the upper, We can see the  specific area of the toe is interrupted. When we playing this shoes we can feel more flexibility, the upper is controlled to bend in the depressions, which also reduces the obstruction of excessive deformation of the upper.


For the supporting , I aways think the Adidas shoes just  not bad, but the Jordans shoes will be more great. so the supporting of this shoe just  so so.We can see the heel part actually can provide the protection.The pieces pull completely away from the upper and are attached to the midfoot shank, tying the lateral support into the sole for extra stability. So maybe for some light weight guys, maybe it enough for the supporting .For me , it has been not enough so far.



One thing that was added was pillows around the ankle bone; there is one on the lateral and one on the medial side. These can avaoid with any heel slip that might have been hurt.



This shoes used the Bounce cushioning again, but it different is the a thick grey midsole that features a generous helping of Bounce cushioning in the heel provides cushioning, it appears to have something going on under the arch — that’s the Adaptive Torsion System, designed to allow the foot to move naturally without losing any cushioning or traction. For those of you who love adidas but feel Boost is a little too crazy, Bounce should fit you fine. While a Continental rubber outsole offers outstanding durability and completes the shoe’s futuristic look.

The BOUNCE midsole is flexible while bending, this midsole also take a great action.And the forefoot can even be bent by nearly 180 degrees, but with the thickening of the midsole, the torsional force is also enhanced.



Traction: Speaking of traction, the dot traction of the original AlphaBounce has been replaced with a tree bark-like pattern that has some bladed edges for extra grip.While continental rubber makes an appearance again, proving adidas is serious about durability,

But the traction  with  s-shaped structure and the Torsion system, which enhances the flexibility of the bridge and meets the stability requirements,for me,it is a very interesting design  which creates the multi-functional performance of adidas .AlphaBOUNCE Instinct, which completes the running process of running or sports.



There is also a new lacing system that drops down the midsole on the middle of the shoe.

Overall:adidas AlphaBounce Instinct is nice , the upper is eye-catching and unique,also the protection of heel part also give us a surprise.With an all-around shoe for multiple activities, with cushioning good enough for running or basketball, a court-friendly traction pattern, though the supporting just normal.
