Adidas Defiant Bounce

Saw Michele referenced this as a shoe she liked, but Tennis Warehouse Europe has them listed as a clay shoe. Halep seems to be wearing them in Miami, so is there going to be a hardcourt version available stateside for men? If so, will it be the navy color?

ArliHawk,

We will be getting the navy colorway in. All of the Defiant Bounces will have the full herringbone tread pattern and can be used on both hard and clay.

Thanks,
Brittany, TW

Have no fear, even though it is listed as a clay court sole, it is a great hard court sole and is very resistant to wear even on the grittiest of hard courts. I have been wearing the Adidas Y3 variant of this shoe on hard courts since last summer and have yet to see any noticable wear on the sole.

Might have to give them a try. They look sharp.

They are one of my favorite shoes I have worn. I went as far as buying a second pair of the Y3's (as Adidas did not have a production version of the shoe last year) that I have stashed away in the event my original pair wore out.

I am looking forward to getting a new colorway when they are released.

Do they fit true to size? Really curious about these and they look great.

ArliHawk,

All the playtesters are wearing their normal size. Initial feedback has been really positive. They are very comfortable.

Thanks,

Awesome! I just placed the order. Hopefully, the in stock date doesn't get pushed back any more. Thanks!

I am also wondering about the weight


I'm looking for a shoe right now and really hoping its a light weight fast kinda shoe so I can order from TW. Hope it gets updated soon.

The shoes should be arriving today and we can get an exact weight. I did however, measure one of the playtester's shoes to give you a better idea. It is a size 10 and has been worn around 12 hours. It's current weight is approximately 13 ounces. I hope this helps until I can get the exact weight.

THanks,

Faris,

I measured a size 10.5 from our stock and the weight was 13.2 ounces. I have updated the website to reflect this.

Yes, we are expecting two more men's colorways in June including a black colorway (and a white/grey).

Are these really wide throughout the shoe?
Or only in the toebox?
Do these work with orthopedic insoles?

Thank you.

Surion,

I just asked our resident wide-footed playtester, Jason, and he said he found it predominately wide in the toe box. Hannah, another playtester, was able to wear her custom insoles with the shoes with no issues.

Hey Brittany,

thank you so much for that quick response!

Sounds like I could've finally found a replacement for my Solution Speed 2!

Thanks again and have a nice weekend.

Does anyone know if these shoes are unisex? I’m not keen on the women’s Colorways.
Thanks in advance!

@onthelinetennis,

While they aren't unisex, you definitely can size down a full size and a half in the men's version to find the correct size!

Just FYI, these shoes are a bit roomy, so if you have a wide foot -- great, you will enjoy them! But if you do have a more narrow foot, you might want to try a full 2 sizes smaller on the men's side as they found the shoes to run a bit wide (and men's shoes have a tendency to run wider than women's shoes).

Hope that helps and we do offer free returns on un worn footwear (try them on carpet and walk around but NOT on the court or outside), so if for some reason the sizing doesn't work out, you can return them and we can help you find the right shoes for you!
