Comments: Normally I am a Babolat Propulse wearer; never worn adidas before. Compared with the Babolats, this
required more of a break in period but felt solid once broken in. I feel that this has a lower to the ground feel. Structurally, it felt
as solid as a house and hence felt more stable than the Propulse. Durability is outstanding. After 20+ hours of play I am just
starting to bald the toe area, which is considerably better than my old Babolats. As the playtesters said, the tongue is thin and
took me a while to get used to. Ventilation and traction is similar to my Babolats. Structurally sound. No eyelet breakage as some
users have reported. Overall, very good and I would buy them again.
Comments: Amazing shoe. I have been using Barricades for the past 10 years for their support and durability (B5
and B7, skipped the 6 and 8 as toe are too narrow). But this CC Feather 3 has a really snug/wrap around feel that fits even better
than the Barricades. Support, while not like a Barricade, is very reasonable for a lightweight shoe. The outsole is not as durable
as the Barricades and is noticeable after 2 hours (not that I expected it to last like a B7. But no worries, it looks like it will still be
way more durable than any Nikes) -- compared to the have the Nike Vapor which I also have, this adidas is more supportive and
equally light). Highly recommend if you want a supportive light shoe. I will use my B7 for practice on hard courts on a hot sunny
day and CC F3 will be used for matches. I bought the orange -- the color is amazing!
Comments: This third version of the Feather is a truly excellent shoe. I've played in Vapor 9/9.5s for the last year or
so, and before that I played in Barricades. I decided to give these Feather IIIs a try, and I'm so glad I did. When I tried them on for
the first time, I was surprised at how much they felt like my Barricades used to. It's hard to describe exactly how they feel, as they
are not "comfortable" in the sense that a pair of slippers (or Vapors) are, and yet they still feel very good on your foot because they
are extremely well fitting, and keep you very stable (which I need being 6'6"). Really, they seem to just be a lighter version of the
Barricade (in fact they look fairly similar to the B7, 6, 5 etc.), as they are also surprisingly very durable. I have yet to see any signs
of wear after a few hours in them. I encourage everyone, especially fans of the Barricade to try this shoe on, as you may be
surprised at how good it feels! They do run big though as people have been saying, half a size down for me worked, but it might
be worth trying a full size down too.
Comments: Got these shoes a couple of months ago. The tongue in the shoe is thin and at first painful but I got
used to it. Then I loved the shoe and found it stable to play on with good traction and durability of the outsole. The problem I
had was one of the eyelets broke and you can see where two other eyelets are starting to give also. I had to return them since
they were only a couple months old. I would buy another pair but I know the eyelets are going to give again. I am a 3.5 player,
5'10", 200 lbs.
Comments: These shoes are perfect if you're looking for that stiff suspension race car feel. The interior sole has a
stiff feel but that is exactly what I am looking for in a lightweight/speed shoe. Ive tried the Asics Gel Speed 2 and that was far too
plush and soft for my taste, but if your are searching for a more comfortable lightweight shoe it would be a great option.
Movement wise, it feels great in every direction and the way the sole is built up on the inside really allows me to slide nicely on
hard courts. The tongue on this shoe as people have mentioned is thin but if you put them on right I have never had a problem
with bunching or lack of comfort. Durability -- I found to be better than most for this type of shoe but my style of play is not very
friendly on shoes. I have had them for about 2.5 months and my right shoe is completely worn through on both the inside sole
and the fabric near my ankle is developing a hole due to sliding. The summer heat down in Miami especially on hard courts I can
say is a strong factor to the increased wear on them as before in the northeast I did not wear through shoes nearly as fast. I tend
to play around 4 times a week for about 3 hours. Overall, the best lightweight shoe I have put on but again not for people who are
looking for a soft more comfortable shoe like you would find in an Asics shoe or Vapor. Lastly I do agree with the below
comments that they do tend to run a bit long. I prefer a more snug fit and found the 8.5 perfect for me though I usually wear a
Comments: Honestly, I never had a problem with these shoes until recently I have noticed that the shoes were a
little long, but then I said it's no big deal. But as i continued to wear these, I've noticed holes. Now, I do drag my toes a bit, but
these holes are ridiculous plus there's a hole between the sole and 'adiprene' which bothers me the most because I've only been
using them for about a month now. Otherwise, great shoe, just not reliable.
Comments: These shoes run about a half to a whole size big. So based on that, plan better. It is not the shoes fault
if you don't order right size.
Comments: The shoes looked great but sadly I had to return them. I've always bought size 10.5 shoes, so I
ordered the same size. It turns out they were too big, so I ordered a size 10. It turns out that even those were too big. I just
returned them instead of getting a new pair. I've never bought such a large pair of shoes.
Comments: If you purchase this shoe thinking it's an update to the Feather II, you will be disappointed. This is a
completely different shoe. The build, the lacing, the sole, the lace...everything is different. For me, the Feather II works on so
levels. Part of getting a shoe to feel right is the lacing system and this one disappoints. The flimsy tongue is just bad design. The
laces don't cinch up like the II. They are light but do not feel as light as the II. The heel strike is comfortable (I weigh 190 and can
bottom out some heels). I put Cadence Orange footbeds in so my arch and support are good. Frankly they look better than the II
they just seem gimmicky to me. All in all, an OK light shoe but I'll be looking for IIs in my future.
