Cons

Upper

Upper

The mid-top upper is made out of synthetic materials that will give you a comfortable fit and a locked in feel while you are hitting the courts. The uppers have TPU overlays incorporated into the construction to help give you some extra support and give you a secure and locked in feel. You will also get easy access when putting your shoes on thanks to the pull tab located on the heel of the sneakers. The materials of the uppers are going to help make sure that they offer a decent amount of airflow into the foot chamber to keep your feet cool and dry throughout the day.
Midsole

Midsole

This design is made with a full-length Boost midsole that gives you an amazing amount of underfoot cushioning that customers can greatly appreciate. Whether you are wearing these to hit the courts or you are simply getting them to wear casually, your feet will thank you after a long day. The decent cushioning in the midsole is also going to help with shock absorption. When you are running and your feet hit the ground the cushioning on the sole will absorb some of that impact, giving your joints a little bit of a reprieve from that pain which can cause injury or discomfort.

Not only will you get that amazing comfort, but the Boost midsole is also going to give you a responsive ride that players can appreciate, giving you that little spring in your step that will allow you to run up and down the courts faster while using a little less energy. When your feet land with each step that you take you will sink into the cushioning that will in turn quickly bounce back to its original shape and propel you forward into your next steps. This is going to save you just a little bit of energy that you can use to focus on the game and help you play harder and longer.
Outsole

Outsole

The outsole is made out of grippy and durable rubber. You will have no problems when it comes to traction while you are wearing these great sneakers. The herringbone pattern that is incorporated into the outsole is going to ensure that you get the grip you will need to stay on your feet while you are running up and down the court all day long. You will not have to worry about slipping and sliding around the floor while you are running around in these sneakers. The traction pattern is very similar to the original pair of the line.
Style

Style

Customers seem to really like the look and style offered y this design. They have a mid-top design and a collar that has cutouts on the medial side to shape to the contours of your ankle to give you a more comfortable feel. They give off a retro look that customers love, featuring the Three Stripe Adidas logo on the medial side of the sneakers and the McGrady logo on the tongue.

They come in a couple of fun colors so you are sure to find something that will best suit your style and personality. You can choose between scarlet, gold metallic, and red; black, gold metallic, dark grey heather, and solid grey; cloud white, gold metallic, and cloud white; or collegiate royal, scarlet, and cloud white. No matter what color you choose to go with they will look great both on and off the court.
Comfort

Comfort

Customers love the amount of comfort that they get from these sneakers. They have a midsole that is made using Boost technology which gives you an amazing amount of underfoot cushioning to make sure that your feet stay happy and comfy all day long. Whether you are wearing these for a game or practice, or you are simply wearing them casually, you will not have to worry about having sore and achy feet after a long day.

Not only do the midsole cause great comfort but the design and fit of the uppers help increase the comfort level of these sneakers. The uppers hug your feet snugly but not so much that they are too tight. They are designed to be light and breathable which will drastically increase your comfort level.
Durability

Durability

When it comes to your shoes you are going to want to make sure that you find a pair that is going to last. It can be extremely frustrating to spend your hard earned money on a pair of basketball shoes just to find out that they are going to fall apart after only a couple of games. They are a bit on the pricey side so you are going to want to make sure that they are going to last so you do not have to spend that money again to replace them for a good long while. That being said, some customers have commented that these look and feel cheap when you are wearing them and they might feel like they are going to fall apart, however, they do not seem to suffer from premature wear and tear. It just goes to show that you should not judge a book by its cover. They might not look like they are going to last but customers were pleasantly surprised by the long life span of these great sneakers.
Fit

Fit

When it comes to your shoes you are going to want to make sure that you get the perfect fit. You are going to want to ensure that your shoes are secure and snug so that way you can take advantage of all of the supportive features, but at the same time, you want to make sure that they are not too tight that they are going to cause you great discomfort in the long run.

Customers are saying that the sizing is going to depend on what you are looking for in your shoes. If you have wider feet and/or want a little bit of wiggle room in your toes then you should order them true to size. If you are looking for a snug fitting shoe with a little adjustment then you might want to consider getting them a half size smaller. If you are unsure of what size you should get it is always advisable to consult the sizing chart to make sure you get the perfect size for your feet.
Support

Support

When it comes to support, the Adidas T-Mac Millennium has you covered. There are a plethora of features incorporated into these sneakers to ensure that you have the support that you need whether you are playing in a big game or simply hanging out with your friends. The uppers feature TPU overlays that will help give you some lateral support but they will also help ensure that your feet stay locked in place inside of your shoe. These overlays, mixed with the traditional lacing system and the lace guard system will help make sure that while you are in the middle of your game or simply out and about your feet are not going to go anywhere. Additionally, these sneakers feature an internal heel counter that works with the lacing system to make sure your heel stays in place. You will not have to worry about your feet slipping and sliding around inside your shoe or potentially falling out all together which can cause injury. These shoes do an amazing job at making sure your feet stay where they are supposed to.
Weight

Weight

The weight of your shoes is essential, especially if you are going to be doing any kind of running or participating in sports, such as basketball. You are going to want your shoes to be as light as possible so they will not feel like weights attached to your feet. No need to have your shoes hold you back and slow you down on game day. That is not something that you are going to have to worry about when it comes to the Adidas T-Mac Millennium. They are designed with game day in mind and will not hold you back at all. There is not a whole lot of information on the exact weight of these shoes but customers can agree that they are relatively lightweight, even though they might feel a little bulky on their feet.
Breathability

Breathability

Breathability is important when it comes to your shoes, especially when you are going to be wearing them for any kind of physical activities, such as running or basketball. Since the Adidas T-Mac Millennium was designed with basketball in mind you can be sure that they are going to deliver a great deal of ventilation to ensure that your feet can stay both cool and dry both on and off the court. The uppers will allow air to flow into the foot chamber to help keep your feet cool while you are on the go. Additionally, you will have the bonus of allowing the sweat off of your feet to evaporate more quickly and escape your shoes to help keep your feet not only dry but healthy as well. You do not have to worry about feeling like your feet are suffocating inside of your shoes or like you are overheating while in the middle of your game. These are going to make sure that your feet stay cool throughout the day.
