Adidas Dame 8 Review
To review this basketball shoe, I look at multiple different things. The main things I look at are the traction, comfort, weight, durability, fit, and ventilation. I believe these things are the most important when reviewing a basketball shoe. I find these things by looking at other reviews online and wearing the shoe myself.
The Adidas Dame 8 has solid traction. The herringbone pattern on the outsole provides a good grip on the court.
The Dame 8 is a comfortable shoe. The foam in the midsole provides good cushioning and the upper is soft and breathable.
The Adidas Dame 8 can weigh anywhere from 390 grams to 410 grams depending on what size you get. This is about average for a basketball shoe, so the Dame 8 gets an average grade.
The Dame 8 is somewhat durable. The upper is made of a strong material, but the outsole can wear down over time. The shoe should be fine unless you wear them outside. If you do, they are down much quicker.
The Adidas Dame 8 had a pretty good fit. It was true to size for me and I had no issues with it. My foot always fit well in the shoe and never moved around.
The Dame 8 ventilation is ok. It’s not bad, but nothing to be amazed at.
The Dame 8 is a solid shoe. You will not regret buying it, but it is not a top of the line basketball shoe. It is pretty solid at everything and doesn’t have any flaws, but it is not amazing at anything. I would recommend buying this shoe if you want a shoe if you want to wear a Damian Lillard basketball shoe. It is the best one he has released. The Dame 8 is also great if you have wide feet. If you have wide feet, this shoe is one of your best bets.
Adidas Dame 8 compared to the Adidas Dame 7
The Adidas Dame 8 is very similar to the Adidas Dame 7, but with some improvements. The Dame 8 improved on the Fit, Ventilation, and Weight of the Dame 7. The Dame 8 did a great job on improving these things because that is what the Dame 7 struggled with. This is a great thing because the Dame 7 was a solid C+ basketball shoe. While the Dame 8 is a B- basketball shoe. This is a big step up for the Dame line and it shows that Adidas is willing to listen to feedback and make changes. This will hopefully make the Adidas Dame 9 an even better basketball shoe.
