These Black and Yellow shoes are sick! People in my school come up to me and ask where I found these and say "nice kicks!" My dad wants a pair. We are Pittsburgh sports fans, so that may influence our judgement. Also, these are more affordable than the other NBA players shoes.
The shoe is fantastic. I would say durability is an issue, but that is the same as literally any shoe on the market today. Yes the outside will fray, no it didn't affect me at all and I am a crossover, quick guard. Traction was great overall, not perfect but great. Cushion is fantastic, despite what others here have said, this is the softest of the boost set-ups and its phenomenal. The prime knit is also great, and the inner bootie compliments it greatly. The fit is great, best fitting Adidas shoe in a long time. I didn't get any blisters or cuts, but I wear long socks always. Also this shoe will fit an ankle brace better than any other shoe. Overall could the shoe have been more durable? Sure, but no shoe really is anymore. It is a great buy and I will be looking forward to picking up a couple of extra pairs of the Crazy Explosive.
Very comfortable and surprisingly supportive. Defintely the best basketball shoe I've ever worn. The PK upper takes absolutely zero break in time. I thought the 4 point lace system was not going to work, but is executed perfectly and keeps you locked in. Heel counter also keeps you from feeling any heel slippage - something I experienced with the Crazylight Boost Low 2016s. Full-length Boost is definitely felt throughout for maximum comfort. As for the outsole, it's not Continental, but it works. I felt no experience of slipping or sliding during hard cuts. Overall the shoe is very low profile and you can feel every millimeter of your foot on the court. No rocking or rollover sensation. I think adidas hit a home-run with the Crazy Explosive PK. Price point is awesome and, in my opinion, a great valued, best bang for your buck basketball shoe.
These have got to be the most comfortable basketball shoes I have ever worn. The primeknit and inner booty (Geofit) is like a nice form fitting sock for your feet. It actually grooves to the shape of your feet over time. The boost is hands down the best cushion in the market right now and is plush and bouncy. These really are the ultra boost of the basketball shoe line up. Lockdown is great in this shoe.. No heel slippage and my toes did not smash into the toe box like how it does in the D Rose 7. As for fit, the fit is true to size. It works well for people with wide feet. If you actually feel the outer sole, such as when you wipe dust off, you'll notice just how wide these shoes are. Now here is the biggest issue with what could have been the greatest basketball shoe to date. The durability of the outer sole is really REALLY bad. Very poor quality. Ive been playing in these for about two weeks and I only play indoors on wood floor. There are already major signs of wear and tear, some parts of the heel area have already completely ripped off. There are like two other reviews that say this and show pictures, and I believe those two guys play indoors as well. I already feel the traction fading away and im sure in another few weeks it may even be bald. Overall, these are awesome shoes and definitely the most comfortable on the market right now. Everything was perfect except the durability of the outsoles. If Adidas used a different rubber compound and used the traction pattern of the D Rose 7 on these Crazy explosives then we have a clear hall of fame basketball shoe. My advice - don't even think about playing with these outside. Almost perfect, almost.
Great looking shoe. Very comfortable in the toe area. I wear adidas superstars all the time and they fit perfect. I bought these in the same size as a my superstars but the crazylight boost 2.5 are extremely tight on the top of my foot behind the toes and in the heel area. They seem to fit a little better as they are breaking in.
Currently I play in the Kyrie 2 and Jordan CP3 IX which are both great shoes but I was looking for something that is more comfortable for my wide feet and has a better cushion. At first the Crazy Explosives were great: The lacing system provides good lock down, the upper primeknit is comfortable especially for wide feet. Support and the Boost are fantastic – maybe one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. Unfortunately, Adidas ruined this sneaker with a low quality outer sole. Traction was good at first (doesn’t get close to the Kyrie 2 or Jordan CP3 IX), but after 2 hours of playing I started sliding around on the hardwood floor like on ice skates (wiping didn’t help). The outer sole pattern started to fall apart and the whole sole itself is a dirt magnet. If your name is Andrew Wiggins and you get a new pair of Crazy Explosives for every game this show is great otherwise not worth the $150. I really wanted to like this shoe – but the low quality outer sole with declining traction is a deal breaker. I also tested the D Rose 7 which has a far better traction and durable materials (but runs to narrow for wide feet).
I wanted to like this shoe. Aesthetically it speaks to me. But first time stepping on the floor I had some major problems. Traction is fine, but having played in a ton of basketball shoes it doesn't touch '11, '13 hyperdunk or Kobe 9. The whole shoe has an inner liner, so I don't know if the primeknit is all necessary. The laces don't stay locked down in the middle unless you work hard for it. The boost doesn't feel like boost, it felt hard. Maybe I got a bad pair? Still the aesthetics are killer, so thats hard to pass up. But from a performance stand point, I'm pretty disappointed.
Possibly the most comfortable shoes I've ever had on my feet, whether for basketball or not. Boost is awesome but unfortunately they come with a tissue paper thin insole. And seeing as how the cushion thins out at the ball of the foot, I recommend putting a thicker one in if you decide to buy. Biggest problem however is the traction. Initially it's incredible, not very squeaky but the pattern makes it incredible nonetheless. But then after about three weeks of strictly indoor play it starts to fray and goes downhill fast. Now I can pretty much expect to slide. Hopefully there'll be a version in the future with a more durable traction but until then it's not worth $150.
Although the traction grooves were shallow, the patten held up and worker fine. Full length boost is the best cushion setup around, and is a bit bouncier than the CL Boost 2016 boost. The primeknit is stretchy and comfortable, with no glue getting in the way. The fit and support is very good, due to the good lacing system and interior features of the shoe.
Great shoe, but I had a major problem. The shoe gave me a horrible cut/blister near my ankle from the inner padding. Was bothering me while playing but not too bad. But after the cut was to painful for me to walk around comfortably for a few days. Everything else about the shoe is PERFECT. Materials are awesome. Cushion is the best ever. My knees felt like I hadn't even played. However, the blister I got was so bad I never tried them again and will be returning them. Shame, might just be an issue with me and my foot, but personally it was still an issue. Maybe just bad luck.
I have gotten the D Rose 7 Multi-Color about a week ago. Great shoe, the design is uniquely Adidas. A bit narrow though for my foot, as I heard. So, when I bought them, I got .5 bigger, size 13.5. Got extra space for my big toe, but was still narrow and a bit tight around my foot. Feels comfortable on the court, haven't played a full court performance game yet, but just running and shooting. Cushion in shoe gives the boost in leaping ability, and no pain in take off. Make sure to wear right performance socks with this shoe. Grip of shoe on court still needs a bit work like all the other D Roses, but still good. Can't wait to see Derrick Rose play in them this NBA season on the Knicks.
The best shoe of the year, hands down. Everything is just great from cushion, fit, lock down, support, and traction. It would be perfect if Adidas make a low top Drose signature like they did with the 2s and 3s.
the boost is amazing, it provides great cushion and feels great while not lacking in court feel. The traction is the best I've used, I've played in the curry 2, kyrie 2, Kobe 9, and the Jordan 28 to put in perspective. It's beastly. It won't last on out door courts tho. The fit is just right and I recommend going true to size. There is just a little dead space by the toe in true to size and if you don't like that go down half a size but it's not a problem at all. Lockdown and support is amazing (it's made for d rose come on it has to be to protect those glass ankles. Overall it's a great show and I'm calling it this early it's the best shoe for the 2016-2017 basketball season I love it.
so far the most comfy shoes in 2016. traction and cusion are both fantastic, also the upper material - prime knitt is very comfy. compared to crazy light boost 2016, I prefer crazy explosive much much more. The only thing I recommend is to improve how it looks. keep the good work, adidas.
Got these kicks in the Andrew Wiggins Timberwolves home colorway at footlocker for $80. It was perfect in my opinion. The boost in the heel was very comfortable and the adiprene+ was decent as well to give enough cushioning to feel comfortable wearing them for hours on end but not sacrificing court feel. The primeknit upper and mesh lower is also top quality. The traction is excellent and you stop very hard and don't have to wipe too much. Just don't take these outside. The only problem that you may encounter is the fit and lockdown. The fit feels a little uncomfortable when you first play in these, but after a few days you get used to it. You just don't feel as locked down and secure as other shoes, but it's not the worst lockdown I've had in a shoe. It just didn't match the high grade of the other aspects of this crazylight model. Overall, these are a solid shoe to hoop in and you should definitely try them out.
This is my 5th pair of basketball boost and these are the cushiest yet. The primeknit doesn't have a glue support backing so they hug your feet. The heel boost offers some of the best cushion I've ever felt. The forefoot boost is bouncy but firm enough that you don't sacrifice courtfeel. These fit true to size so you don't have to guess like other models. I'm wide footed and had no problem. The highest lace-loop needs a little trial and error because there isn't much tongue between the laces and the front of your ankle so it can feel a little restrictive.
They are great shoes! However, a more varied color choice would be appreciated. The shoes couldn't be better but the I think the lack of color choices or a "customize" option really hurts the product.
I read how everyone noted that this shoe runs big in size...I like a little extra room so I can put in my orthotics so that was not a problem for me...I think these shoes will make it on the court this summer...the red 3 sinks in....I'm still wondering if the James Harden signature shoe next season will b a high top...these are low and I prefer high but I really like these...
I was excited to order the James Harden All Star color way when it first came out. I ordered my usual size 13. When I got the shoes it looked like a 14 or 15 the shoe was huge. But by the time I received my pair the shoe was sold out besides sizes 9 and 9.5 I usually wear size 13 with this shoe I could have used a size 12 or even 11.5 I thought it was very weird. I double checked to make sure the shoe wasn't a 14 or bigger but the box and shoe tag says 13. If you can try and try them on before you buy them.
