These shoes are pretty darn good. The material it is made up of may appear to be cheap, but I've been wearing them for a few months now for lifting and running and it still looks great. The skin is very durable.
There are strategically placed holes on the bottom of the shoes for breathability, and you will definitely feel the air flowing through.
I'm not sold on the "natural" trend that's going on with shoes because I have some medical problems with my feet, so I prefer light, yet supportive and this shoe does the job. They are VERY light and has excellent lockdown.
The only 'con' I can think of is that the are very narrow, so go up a full size if wide feet.
Pros: lightweight, durable, good cushioning, breathable

adidas adiZero Rose 2.5 - Men's
The adidas adiZero Rose 2.5 basketball shoe is worn by Derrick Rose. Laser patterned upper features a SPRINTWEB overlay mid-panel that covers the inner mesh. SPRINTFRAME MONOCOQUE CHASSIS bonds the external heel counter with the asymmetrical TORSION® SYSTEM and allows for maximum weight savings, energy return and motion control. High grade, injection-molded EVA ensures the most lightweight midsole because of the consistent density. SPRINTFRAME chassis has a recess in the midfoot to house a miCoach Pacer unit. Asymmetrical midsole layout aligns with internal i beams. This angled geometry literally makes it harder to twist your ankle and easier to adapt to the ground. High traction rubber outsole features a multi-level cross section that increases surface area and helps limit dust build up. Removable insole. Wt. 11.7 oz.

These shoes get the job done. I use them for Volleyball, and I primarily play in the back row, which means I'm constantly moving and diving (but when I jump I feel like I fly!) The adiZero Rose 2.5's are light with great ankle support! Traction is top notch.
Pros: breaks in easy, lightweight, cool colors, good ankle support, good traction, stays clean a long time
The adidas Rose 3.0 basketball shoe is inspired by Derrick’s humble roots and exciting play. The Rose logo features three petals that revolve around a subtle letter "D" and number "1" in the center. The petal’s sharp edges represent his speed and agility on the court and each one is unique to pay homage to the creative cuts, slashes and shots he makes on the court. The petals also symbolize the foundation that brought Derrick from the playgrounds of Englewood to NBA superstardom - his mother, Brenda, in the center, and his brothers Allen, Reggie and Duane as support. Just as sharp, crafted and lethal as D-Rose's game, these shoes are what separates an MVP from the others. Synthetic leather upper provides optimal light weight and durability and incorporates a unique Sting Ray emboss pattern tying back to the stingray leather used on real katana swords; the preferred weapon of the legendary Samurai warrior. SPRINTFRAME construction provides stability and speed through geometrical research to create a lightweight and supportive basketball chassis. Breathable sandwich mesh tongue incorporates a 3M reflective Black Rose logo while the back details the Rose Family tree with a Chicago word mark. Molded EVA collar adds increased ankle lock down. High rebounding injected EVA midsole offers longer resiliency and response over time. More EVA through the midfoot delivers stronger torsional and midfoot stiffness for side-to-side cuts. PU sockliner brings added cushion and breathability. Non-marking rubber outsole with increased ground contact and enhanced traction gives ultimate grip. miCoach compatible. Wt. 12.6 oz.
