    I thought that as well, but according to the adidas website, the new Lux shoe does have a boost sole. The description also has a section at the end which states 'Technologies Used', which again lists a boost sole.

    Word to the wise, if you wear ASICS performance running shoes (top line Kayanos or trail shoes) the inner soles in them fit into their hockey shoes and significantly improve the comfort and wear on them.

    You've got a good point @Parker72! It would explain why this years Lux are more expensive than the Adizeros.

    I've tweeted Adidas Hockey to see what they say. If they do have boost tech then they're missing a trick by not promoting/informing on this better!!

    I am surprised that adidas haven't said in the description that the Lux has a boost sole - they have for the Fabela X (and all other shoes with a boost sole). Unlike adidas not to scream from the rooftops what technologies their shoes have......

    Random question for the mods/admins: Shouldn't this thread be in 'other gear questions & reviews' instead of general hockey? That's where the last 3 years' threads are, makes it easier to find.

    And back on topic:

    The new Asics Gel Lethal look rubbish compared to the older ones for me. Still a decent shoe, as nothing looks to have changed other than the colour. But they've been all sorts of bright colours in recent years, and this year it's plain & boring black for the men, plain & boring dark pink for the women.

    I was really disappointed when I saw them too, was looking at getting another pair. Hopefully mine last the season and next year they have some good colours again!

    No big shock considering JD himself was seen wearing the very same Nike shoes maybe a year or so ago...bit of product research and some "borrowing" of certain aspects of the Nike shoe no doubt led to the design of the JDH shoes

    The new TK shoes look interesting. I don't think TK have ever produced a decent shoe in the past but with a complete revamp of their entire range it will interesting to see what they're like. They look like they've got a knitted sock upper.

    I think they initially look similar only due to the raised arch. The stud pattern on the sole is completely different to the Nike's, as is the upper.

    I just wish they had 'JDH' on the side instead of that awful player logo.

    Yes, the outline image of him running.
    I far prefer the letters as a cleaner, neater logo.

    I wouldn't mind so much if the logo was bigger it would be better and I wouldn't mind seeing the letters on there, honestly quite a bit of JDH's logos are quite bold and don't always work such as the newest hook-head with the blue head and pink(apparently red) 'H'. I do like the colouring though.
