adidas now has a new flagship shoe for their speed-oriented adizero line – the Ubersonic! This new premium offering features a super low to the ground ride that feels lightning quick on court and keeps you completely connected to your movement. Rubber was removed and strategically replaced by mesh in specific areas of the outsole to reduce weight and make the shoe ultra light and fast-feeling. Lastly, extra TPU protection wraps the toe area and medial side on the upper to give added protection for aggressive movers.
Our experts playtested the Ubersonic a few weeks ago and we can tell you that they all really enjoyed the shoe! They loved how light and fast they were, and the black and red cosmetic they had been testing looked awesome too. From a fit standpoint, the most noticeable aspect is a pretty high arch, making them perfect for players that like having a lot of support in that area. They are similar in that way to the Barricade (for those of you that are familiar). Other than that the shoe fits pretty true to size with a medium width.

If you play on clay courts, adidas also offers the clay specific version of this shoe, that features a full herringbone outsole for ideal traction on clay courts.
If you’re a fan of lightweight, speed-oriented performance shoes, the Ubersonic is definitely worth a try! This one fits right in and is very comparable with the Nike Vapor 9.5 Tour, Asics Solution Speed 2 and New Balance 996.
