    To my surprise i see virtually no talk about the relatively new Adizero Feather II!? Why? I bought the Feather II and to my surprise its a extremely good shoe!

    All the things i disliked about the Adizero Feather I is changed on Feather II and its a really really good shoe. Extremely fast! Very solid! Good cushioning! Interesting sole!

    For me, a big swedish guy at 6,5 and 225 lbs, i need good solid shoes and this shoe is a perfect match for me.

    What is your thoughts on the Feather II?

    Love it, it is a fantastic shoes. If you look at the customer feedback, it appears to be quite popular. And Chris gave it a favorable review as well. Great shoe.

    Can you compare to the barricade or vapor 9?

    I have barricade and vapor. Contemplating whether or not to get another barricade or try out the feathers.

    Really like the support on the b's. The v's are ok, but occasionally i notice the impact on hard landings which makes me a bit more nervous with them.

    I have not tried the latest Barricades but i used Barricade I to V and I thought the Barricades just got harder and harder and i just didnt like them at all in the end. Narrow and a lack of cushioning.

    The Vapor 9 is also an excellent shoe. What i feel is different between Vapor 9 and Feather II is that the Feather II is a tad lower to the ground and a bit faster. I also love the sole-pattern on the Feather. Its not so aggressive as some other herringbone-patterns.

    The Vapor 9 is an excellent shoe as well and its like choosing between Coke and Pepsi. Its just personal preferences, but against Boyalan Suger Cane Cola equilant of shoes, the GSOAT, the Asics Gel Res II, they still have a long path to walk :)

    Hey Hank, I'm almost as big as you and probably much older. The speed or ergonnomics of the various Feathers has been up and down over the years. This one is the best and the lightest. No complaints other than the price. How's that, big fella?

    best shoe i have played in since barricade II, i have very wide forefoot and these are amazing for me, on US HC the grip is incredible, only issue is the tread pattern is designed for US HC so in UK where there are often wet courts the grip is dangerous not sure re durability yet, but i hear pros are killing a pair in less than a week

    Been wanting to get a pair but quite frankly, the colorways are rather weird to me

    Tried one pair out today, pure GOATness. These may outperform my V9s. Unfortunately I'm not buying one until they go on sale...

    EDIT: oops, looks like that they're on sale now :D

    Adidas hit a home run with both the barricades and adi0 feather 2's. BTW- check your local outlet. Got BOTH euro cw's for $162 tax included.

    I would love a pair of red feather II's. My outlets don't even carry feathers around me.

    I expect TWE to offer clay version. They promised two color versions to be available - sometime in January / March '13.

    I guess this will be ... white/silver & white/infrared ...

    i wanted to try these but couldnt get past the silver. Grey or black would look good. the silver for some reason just turned me off, metallic spray paint comes to mind. How does the silver wear?
