My second time to wear an adi shoe. Well I have to say it has great traction. Also boots is Awesome. However, the forefoot is extremely terrible. No adiprene+. No response. No cushion. I don't suggest big guys choose this one.
This show is very nice all around. It has good grip and good material for breathablilty. The one thing I would change is the half connected tongue to the shoe. I do not know what purpose it serves and it gets in the way when you try to tie the shoe. I think it's not necessary and is stupid. In the future I would recommend going with a detached tongue like a normal shoe. It looks better. It doesn't get in the way of laces. The half connected tongue is quiet pointless.
After pulling these shoes out of the box, I fell in love. The Primeknit upper is super soft and breathable. The first time i held them, there was some glue on them but that may have just been mine. Boost is insanely comfortable in the back but not much cushion in the forefoot but enough. What i loved most was the design. With every pair of Adidas kicks I get, the design is usually the downfall but these shoes have it all. I always role with Adidas and I know with these shoes, are by far the best basketball shoes out there, for Adidas. Totally a great buy from my point of view. Hope this helped!
Reviews were hyping this shoe up and it fell short for me. I think I'm not heavy enough or not dependent on my heel so I can't really feel or use the boost when I'm jumping for rebounds. However, primeknit is good and so is the heal counter. Pricing is decent though, I got mine on sale and that should be the same for everyone else. Hoping they copy the rose 6's full length boost and everything else relatively the same next year but still keep a reasonable price. Remember to break these in.
Great running shoes, maybe some other sports but not basketball. I do really like those, very comfortable and breathable, while running/ walking. I would only recommend those for the above and not basketball. I would risk hooping in those.
They are comfortable when walking around. Unfortunately, there was not enough cushion in the forefoot for me to play basketball in them. The adiprene+ in the forefoot was an improvement from last year's crazy light, BUT still not enough for me personally. The boost in the heel felt great. I would recommend replacing the standard thin insole with a thicker insole. Without a new thicker insole, the forefoot is quite roomy. Additionally, the outsole is not that durable, so I recommend these for indoor basketball only. Since they are still aesthetically pleasing, so I will continue to wear mine casually.
I purchased these for table tennis at my local club. We play on wooden floors. I was previously using running shoes (boston 3) which make me feel very light and agile, but was lacking the support in lateral movements and the continental soles on the bostons constantly needed a dab on a wet rag to retain grip. Given the name 'crazylight', I thought these were going to be close to the weight of the bostons w/ more stability. The stability was excellent, even with alittle more room in toe area, my heals felt like they were cup'd which supported good form when I squat and lunge forward from my heals to avoid knee injuries. Unfortunately they were not what I was looking for and they were returned. I possibly could have used a .5 size smaller but I was positive I would not have been happy with the weight. I should have kept them for casual shoes but found actual table tennis shoes from adidas on ebay. Overall i'm sure the shoe is great for basketball which it was designed for. Thank you adidas for accepting my return, even though I played in them. I hope to see more table tennis products in the US online store.
Nice and tight from the ankle to the instep with a quite loose fit on the toes. Very breathable; The boost on the heel works really well to dampen your hops; and great traction. I can't stress this enough, but this shoes is really comfortable! And I almost forgot: It looks good!
The Crazy Light Boost is a amazing show.Prime Knit Woven upper with out any glue or fuse backing it straight prime knit.Which is definitely a plus very free feeling but locks your foot down when you're making those hard cuts or direction changes.Adidas also really opened up the ventilation which no other brand at least I have used have done so far.The boost cushioning in the heel is great except for the Adi Preme it takes a little time to break in and you can definitely tell a difference between the Heel and the fore foot. The only real downside of the crazy light boost 2015 is the traction and the dead space in the toe box.The traction is kind of a blade heringbone type patter and it just doesn't perform as well as I thought it would. The dead space in the toe box is very significant.the space from my toes to the toe box is just weird to me. My toe has space from touching the very top of the shoe but the toe box doesn't form to my foot like a woven upper should be. So it would be cool to fix these problems in the 2016 Crazy Light Boost and we have a solid shoe.But overall the Crazy Light Boost is a amazing shoe price point at 130$ is a great deal comparing to other brands signature models and they play just or even better. If you can try these on in store
I'm a Adi head. I own the Red and Yellow colorways. These sneakers are great straight out the box no real "break em' in" time necessary. The last ball sneaker I was wearing was the D.Rose 5 boost. This CrazyLight boost is a billion times better then those and they were actually pretty good. FYI I've never worn a low for ball.
I purchased the color "running white/silver metallic". As far as looks are concerned, one of the sexiest designs I have seen on any shoe. Keep more designs/color schemes like this coming. Adidas has come a long way and is really making noise as far as their shoe design. The "boost" heel provides great cushioning, but does not sacrifice responsiveness. The heel cushioning rivals that of any basketball shoe I have tried on. However, I completely disagree with the one review saying the forefoot cushioning was resolved. I would hate to try out the older versions of this shoe if their forefoot cushioning was worse, because this shoe really feels cheap on the forefoot (maybe a thin layer of boost cushioning on the whole shoe would help?) Overall, a sold shoe and another positive for Adidas.Keep up the good design work. However, I would take my D Lilard 1's over these any day.
For the price these are amazing design. They fit true to size and are very comfortable. I love how it feels like my hooping with running shoes with that primeknit upper. Of course the boost feels amazing as we all know. Only problem is the traction and wear could be better for those of us that can't always play at well maintained indoor courts.
First off I gotta say the look of this shoe when you wear it is definitely above most others. I bought the white and black ones and see people at the gym staring at them all the time. Overall very happy with it. Some slight problems with them is that the sizing feels to run a little bit small. I'm a size 11 and that's what I got but I would have been more happy with an 11.5. Also I wear ankle socks and walking with them around in the gym the backs of the show rubs on my skin and cause a slight cut on both ankles. Can be fixed by wearing higher socks but that's not my look so I've just covered it with a band aid. I want to get the blue ones now but this time in the slightly bigger size.
The crazy light boost 2015 is a great shoe for the player wants a low profile, on court feel but still wants responsive cushioning. The boost is amazing and the adiprene plus is pretty good too, giving you a comfortable shoe while playing. The prime knit adds to the comfort, while giving you flexibility while cutting side to side. Overall, I believe this shoe is one of the best for guards like me and I would definitely pick up a pair.
Great shoe! Bought it off Eastbay for the discount Price of $90. I did say the Fit was just right but there was some space above the toe box which was a Little uncomfortable. Loved the boost. I got these with the Black upper with speckled red Fitcage and the Opaque Camouflage outsole.
The boost has an amazing drop in feel, the heel cup is very supportive and keeps your ankle snug without losing comfort. The primeknit upper feels weightless and moves with every motion of your foot while also allowing excellent ventilation. The grip is unmatched by any other performance shoe. Overall the crazylight boost 2015 is definitely well worth the purchase and plan on purchasing another pair in a new colorway.
This shoe is one of the most comfortable pair of basketball sneakers currently. If you like the on court feel.. this shoe has it! If you like great court traction.. got it!! If you like the comfort of a sock while having great support and heel lockdown.. Go get this shoe!! You will not be disappointed!!.. unless you do not like low tops.
I didn't like last year's Crazy Light Boost bc of the traction and terrible forefoot cushioning. Adidas addresses both those issues with an awesome traction pattern as well as increasing the foam in the forefoot. The shoe really feels like a running shoe but made for hoops. Primeknit is fantastic and has a nice little skeleton inside the upper for extra Support. Boost as always is awesome and really makes the shoe stand out IMO. I bought my normal sz 11 and these fit perfectly. Great job Adidas !
I bought this shoe on sale at a Foot Locker For $63. I really wanted this shoe for awhile and when i got them they were so comfy. On court they were explosive and the traction was great. These D Rose shoes are also great for casual wear. All my friends and family keep telling me how fresh I look. Adidas has made an exceptional shoe. Best To Date.
I've been waiting to buy these for over a year. I finally was able to get a hold of them by ordering online because they are not offered in stores where I live. Now I'm a bit disappointed. I own 4 pairs of Adidas shoes, 3 out of of 4 are size 8.5 and fit perfect. I bought the D-Rose in 8.5 my usual size and it seems a half size large. The boost feels great on the back of the shoe but not nearly as nice as the way it feels with the Pure Boost, (foam on the whole length of the shoe.) But I understand the need for rigidity for a basketball shoe vs running. You want to be able to make quick turns/ stops with out the feeling of a wobbly marshmallow under your feet. And this is why I really wanted to see how the D-Rose 5 was executed with boost. Boost has so much potential in a basketball shoe if you can get that balance of strength and energy return. Anyway...on the bottom of the inside of my heel feels awkwardly raised and irritated. The toes have a doming look/feel that I would prefer to see a sleek and subtle form from the rubber up (could be caused by 1/2 size issue). Over all these feel like premium basketball shoes but not as elite as I was hoping for, the boost is real and worth the shot. I'm hoping the 6 fixes some of the comfort issues and uses the boost to take it to the very elite level I was seeking. (boost is real I highly recommend getting the D-Rose 5... but try them on in a store first.)
Just finished up most of a season in this shoe, playing and trianing 2-3 times a week. Thought I'd wait until I'd logged some proper court time in them before I left a review. PROS: Durability - After almost a full season, aside from a couple of scuff marks, they feel and look like they did when I bought them and they've not lost any grip, so durability is good. Boost - The full length boost really does feel good, particularly on firmer surfaces. I felt bouncier and more athletic in them, and also felt cushoined and protected when making hard cuts, landing etc. CONS: Fit - although they fit true to size (at least in my case), it's the actual shape that bothers me. They feel stiff and unnatural when you put them on at the beginning of a session, and although they loosen up after a few minutes of playing/warm up, there's no correcting for the unusual shape. At least for me, it felt like the shoes were dictating the way my feet tracked. This left my feet sore and stiff after a long session, and may have contributed to my shin splints which occasionally cause me problems. Also, the toe box is disproportionately large, so even if you pick the right size, you'll have to tighten the front up too much, and still you'll be left with an awkward space above your toes. Weight/bulk - They aren't the lightest shoes in the world, and they feel quite bulky when playing in them. This isn't a massive complaint, as they have good support, and I've definitely played in heavier shoes, but it's definitely noticeable. SUMMARY: These are a decent pair of shoes, and if they happen to fit you're feet nicely then they'll be a good shoe to buy. However, it is most likely that thye will not fit nicely, so I strongly recommend trying them on if possible before purchasing (not an option for me as I'm a size 13/14 so struggle to find shoes anywhere but online). They are just too expensive right now to risk it, so I will not be buying another pair of these for next season, and will be returning to a different brand of shoe with which I have always had success.
I bought these because I needed some shoes to play ball in and I like drose. Now going into it I never ever believed any of that "oh it makes you jump higher" hype but honestly, I can get rim easier with these shoes on. I'm 5'8 btw, and I can get rim easy with these on and they are comfortable, my feet don't hurt afterward and its got good ankle support too. Great buy actually not just good. K
After only playing for a couple minutes, fitframe digs into my bigtoe. y have fitframe extend all the way when it only has to go to the midfoot? this hurts my bigtoe. otherwiswe everything else is great. Adidas, please cut fitframe on your basketball shoes to midfoot! i have also experienced this with the jwalls, but worse. it is unnecessary for the fitframe to extend the length of the shoe and it distracts me from playing.
This shoe is definitely the most comfortable shoe I have in my shoe collection. In my collection, I have the Kobe Venomenon, the KD 6, KD 7, the Lebron 12, and the Kobe 9. I have never purchased a Adidas model basketball shoe, because of the reviews of the past Rose collection. This shoe is a must get, its more comfortable than any other Nike shoe I have hooped in. The boost is just 1/3 of the shoe, you will feel completely locked in with the ankle support and the traction is pretty amazing. I would definitely recommend this shoe over a lot of other shoes.
The design is great. The material in the shoe is just outstanding with the boost technology. The fit is a bit big so i suggest getting it a 1/2 size smaller than you usually would. Overall, this is an amazing purchase.
