Luckily in November of 2019, we were fortunate enough to receive a pair of the AND1 Attack 2.0 to review and share our thoughts on for AND1 and our community. Fast forward to 6+ months of performance basketball and casual wear, here’s where the Attack 2.0 stands.
Following up with its predecessor, the AND1 Attack, the sequel takes everything from its past model, with some serious upgrades. Synthetics, fuse, and Harmonix RX cushioning was featured on the Attack 1.0s, but the 2.0s have massively improved those features. The AND1 Attack 2.0 arrives with a multi-directional wave outsole, featuring some pods of herringbone.
The midsole is a Harmonix set-up— a dual density sole unit where a top loaded thermoplastic (ETPU) sits full length underfoot, encased in a standard EVA foam chassis. An external midfoot TPU shank plate is also applied at the sole, in between the rubber and foam for increased support and rigidity. The forefoot of the upper features a ballistic nylon, but this may differ depending upon colorways. The rear is a complete nylon/neoprene material, which is overlaid by a ballistic nylon heel counter. Completing the shoe is a webbed lacing system and a one-piece construction.
So, 6 months later, the AND1 Attack 2.0 is still doing what it does best, “getting the job done”. They don’t necessarily “excel” in any given department, but get the job done just fine in every single department. For one of AND1s most recent models in their resurgence to the performance basketball world, they did an excellent job of creating and fine-tuning a performance basketball shoe that meets the needs of several different playing styles and positions.
As of now, the release for the Attack 2.0 is up in the air, and don’t expect them to release anytime soon, but stay tuned to the AND1 Email Newsletter, and our site for a potential shock drop or limited release before the Fall.
