Comments: I bought these on sale (with a bit of trepidation), after not having been particularly impressed wtih
the first Feather series. I have only worn them a few times on court, as they are simply too uncomfortable to play seriously
in. As many commentators have noted, the thin, low quality tongue is the chief problem with the shoe, as it bunches up
and provides absolutely no buffering against the laces if you want to tighten them up sufficiently to move around the court
aggressively. I also find the toebox a bit constricting (though I do have wider feet) and not particularly well-padded. They
are okay to wear around the house or for walking the dog, but they are one of the least serious shoes from adidas I have
ever owned and do regret taking a flyer on them when they went on sale.

Comments: i bought these in June and now I have to buy new shoes after using them for only 2 months. I
wouldn't recommend these shoes if you play for more than 10 hours a week.
From: JJ, 8/15
Comments: I haven't yet played with them because I am currently breaking them in by wearing them for a few
hours a day. The shoe is true to size for me. All around, they feel pretty good and stable too. I do agree with some of the
other comments regarding the tongue. It bunches up when you cinch up the laces and pinches my upper foot a bit. I think
this will work and probably smooth out after I break them in, however it would be good if adidas could make the tongue
more contoured to the foot and maybe more padded as well.

Comments: This shoe is amazing! It is very comfortable, the foot support is great and I feel my foot lock and
secure. The traccion on clay is very, very good, but on hard courts, I'm sliding a little (the Barricade outsole is absolutely
better in traction for hard courts). The cosmetics are great. After 2 hours of a break-in period, this shoe is literally a feather.
The only downside of this shoe is the adituff, it seems like it isn't durable.

Comments: In response to all the comments about sizing for this shoe -- I ordered a 12 because many said to
order 1/2 or full size smaller than usual. The shoe was way too small. Just received another pair in my normal size 13 and
it fits perfect.
From: Bob, 6/15
Comments: Before ordering this shoe, I kept reading that the sizing is a bit off -- that I should order either a
1/2 size or a full-size smaller because the shoes run a bit long. When I received the shoes, I was very surprised when I
couldn't even get my foot inside! None-the-less, I put the shoes back in the box and returned for a larger (my normal) size.
We'll see how they fit when I receive them in a few days. Kudos to TW for giving me free 2-day ship on the next pair.
From: Bob, 6/15
Comments: After reading so many user reviews saying the size runs big by 1/2 to 1 full size big for both men
and women, I was persuaded but skeptical and ordered 11 1/2, a half size smaller than my size 12 (for 50 years). The left
size 11 1/2 was a snug OK fit for me, but the right size 11 1/2 shoe was about 1/4 size smaller than the left shoe, and it
was too small in length and width. Hence, I advise ordering your usual size; maybe adidas and their supplier for Adizero
CC Feather III have corrected the oversizing of their shoe production now, May 2015. I returned the pair (costing $15
including signature)-- a significant expense for a $70 shoe.
From: Bob, 6/15
Comments: Just got them and played about 2.5 hours in them and they were great. I will say they feel a bit
of the box so I recommend walking around your house in them to break them in a bit. They feel light and move well on the
I was playing primarily doubles on a hard court surface and they performed great. I can only compare to Nike Vapor 9.5
currently wear as well. As for fit, they do run large, so be sure to size down -- the fit is similar to the Nike Vapor 9.5. I have
narrow feet so I have always liked adidas. Typically, I wear a 14 in running shoes but got a 13 and the fit was good. In
feel, they are not as soft as the Vapor 9.5 but very comfortable. After warming up and playing, I had no foot pain, blisters or
issues to speak of. For durability, it's too soon to tell but they feel firmer which could translate to slightly better wear than
Vapor 9.5. Then, as far as cosmetics, I really like them. I wouldn't call this a true red, more of an orange cone type color
really liked and was happy with when I opened the box.

very satisfied with my purchase and would highly recommend this to someone looking for a lightweight shoe.
From: Mark, 4/15
Comments: Had to return the shoes. Excessive room in the forefoot allowed my forefoot to move around in
shoe. This resulted in the joint/knuckle of my middle toe on each foot rubbing against the roof of the shoe, causing the
rub raw. I would not recommend this shoe.
From: Juan Carlos, 3/15
Comments: I bought the black, white, and gray ones directly from adidas. They look really cool with my gray
pants. They fit fine and are light enough, but the soles were worn out in just a couple of months. As a result, I would lose
footing with shifting or changing directions.

shoes that helps me get to the ball quick! Although the downside of the shoe is the "cage" around the toe box starts to
peel off on
the inner side of the foot. None the less, it's still there and it's a great shoe. I can't speak about the durability except it has
out the longest out of my three other shoes. Highly recommended!
From: Nathan, 2/15
Comments: At first I thought I regreted buying this shoe because I felt it was a little to big. I liked the design so
got the supposedly women's size for this shoe which is a 7.5 for a 9. But then I started playing tennis with them and
it wasn't that bad at all. It definitely helps wearing thick socks like Nike hyperelites though to lessen the loose sensation.
the traction is great, durability is solid, but comfort could be a little better. But as a light shoe, this is to be expected. I feel
wonderful on the court especially since I am just a beginner who used to play with Nike flyknit running shoes. I feel more
and secure in actual tennis shoes especially adidas.

Comments: I loved this shoe until the seam connecting to the adidas stripes came apart, on both shoes.
just got a bad pair, but I was very disappointed because they are light and comfy.
From: Jason, 2/15
Comments: I love these shoes but they are not red, they are more of a peach orange. Even though they aren't
color described they look super sharp and are super comfortable. They weren't as light as I expected them to be either,
considering that my old Nike Vapor Courts are lighter. I like how the logo is on the shoes. Everyone else who has reviewed
shoes gave the thin tongue a bad rep, but I don't see a problem with the tongue bunching up as long as I make sure it lays
on the top of my feet when I slip them on -- I really like it and find it comfortable. These shoes have great support on the
and hold traction really well. Overall, I like these better than my Vapor Courts and I would recommend them to anyone who
to buy them. I plan to use them in my upcoming matches.
From: Micah, 2/15
Comments: Normally I am a Babolat Propulse wearer; never worn adidas before. Compared with the Babolats,
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
as solid as a house and hence felt more stable than the Propulse. Durability is outstanding. After 20+ hours of play I am
starting to bald the toe area, which is considerably better than my old Babolats. As the playtesters said, the tongue is thin
took me a while to get used to. Ventilation and traction is similar to my Babolats. Structurally sound. No eyelet breakage as
users have reported. Overall, very good and I would buy them again.
From: Jo, 1/15
Comments: Amazing shoe. I have been using Barricades for the past 10 years for their support and durability
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
than the Barricades. Support, while not like a Barricade, is very reasonable for a lightweight shoe. The outsole is not as
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
way more durable than any Nikes) -- compared to the have the Nike Vapor which I also have, this adidas is more supportive
equally light). Highly recommend if you want a supportive light shoe. I will use my B7 for practice on hard courts on a hot
day and CC F3 will be used for matches. I bought the orange -- the color is amazing!
From: Mark, 12/14
Comments: This third version of the Feather is a truly excellent shoe. I've played in Vapor 9/9.5s for the last
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
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,
are not "comfortable" in the sense that a pair of slippers (or Vapors) are, and yet they still feel very good on your foot
are extremely well fitting, and keep you very stable (which I need being 6'6"). Really, they seem to just be a lighter version
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
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
be worth trying a full size down too.
From: Seneca, 11/14
Comments: Got these shoes a couple of months ago. The tongue in the shoe is thin and at first painful but I
used to it. Then I loved the shoe and found it stable to play on with good traction and durability of the outsole. The
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
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
5'10", 200 lbs.
From: Anthony, 11/14
Comments: These shoes are perfect if you're looking for that stiff suspension race car feel. The interior sole
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
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
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
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
friendly on shoes. I have had them for about 2.5 months and my right shoe is completely worn through on both the inside
and the fabric near my ankle is developing a hole due to sliding. The summer heat down in Miami especially on hard courts
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.
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
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
From: Eric, 10/14
Comments: Honestly, I never had a problem with these shoes until recently I have noticed that the shoes were
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,
these holes are ridiculous plus there's a hole between the sole and 'adiprene' which bothers me the most because I've only
using them for about a month now. Otherwise, great shoe, just not reliable.
From: Dillan, 9/14
Comments: These shoes run about a half to a whole size big. So based on that, plan better. It is not the shoes
if you don't order right size.
From: Smokey, 7/14
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
returned them instead of getting a new pair. I've never bought such a large pair of shoes.
From: Dave, 4/13
Comments: If you purchase this shoe thinking it's an update to the Feather II, you will be disappointed. This is
completely different shoe. The build, the lacing, the sole, the lace...everything is different. For me, the Feather II works on
levels. Part of getting a shoe to feel right is the lacing system and this one disappoints. The flimsy tongue is just bad
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
bottom out some heels). I put Cadence Orange footbeds in so my arch and support are good. Frankly they look better than
they just seem gimmicky to me. All in all, an OK light shoe but I'll be looking for IIs in my future.
