The Adidas Box Hog 3 shoes are the newest adaption of the famous Adidas original Box Hog shoes. These new boxing shoes are definitely an upgrade on the original Box Hog & 2 which will give you much more comfort and confidence when you train in them.
In this review I will go over what they feel like wearing them, the look and design and some an overview of the materials and features.
My experience of using the Adidas Box Hog 3 shoes are overall very positive so far! They are an extremely lightweight pair of boxing shoes just like its’s predecessors. However, I felt the shoes themselves are also bulky enough to feel like you have enough support and control when you pivot or move around in the ring or training. This is mainly because of the extra stability in provided the mid-cut design and inner reinforcements (see further below.)
These are a truly incredible upgrade from the Hog 2 and I would go as far to say they are just as good as the Reebok’s Boxing Shoes or Everlast Elite Boxing shoes which I think are two of best boxing shoes you can get on the market right now.
Check out my video review below:
The design of these next gen Adidas boxing shoes can come in four main standard colours; Black, White, Blue and Red. I have also seen a new ‘Camo Green’ edition which might pick your fancy! (see further below) The famous three stripes are on each side of the boot and all in black, along with the Adidas logo on the top of the shoe tongue.
One of the coolest and favourite parts is on the inside of the boot tongue which has quote to motivate you each time you put them on:
“Boxing has the power to change lives”
They are simple design, but eye-catching and have Adidas have done a brilliant job to modernize from the previous models.
In terms of the material for the Adidas Box Hog 3, it is made from knit mesh with synthetic suede overlays along with an abrasion-resistant toe cap. The shoes also have gum rubber out sole for extra grip and unique inner reinforcement material to help the ankle support.
The way they have used the material for this boxing shoe make me believe they will last a while which is great!
A Closer Look
Here is a closer look at some of the features on the shoes, including some shot of my Adidas Box Hog 3 shoes:
Pros & Cons
|Lots of different color options||Might feel tight for some people if you are very flat footed|
|Very comfortable to wear||It’s slightly more expensive than average boxing shoes|
(However, this is a quality shoe!)
|Brilliant grip and support|
Overall I personally feel the Adidas Box Hog 3 boots are one of the best pairs of boxing shoes you can get today. They are comfortable, lightweight and very supportive to wear which makes them perfect for every workout. The choice of design is simple, but also unique in its own right with plenty of options to choose.
If you are looking for a quality product you won’t be left disappointed with the Adidas Box Hog 3 is for you!
