I've taken these shoes with me on a 3-week vacation and have been using them running and city walking. So far they've performed perfectly. Great, true fit, very comfortable, and they really do keep my feet nice and cool. Thoroughly enjoying them after a couple weeks of heavy use.
Having just started playing Futsal in town I picked up some Sambas. A year later and a thousands kicks I purchased the ACE5.3 Indoor Shoes. They did exactly what I wanted in this upgrade - flatter to get under the ball. I've had a few games in these so far and they hold up to Adidas standards in shoes meant for ball play.
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.
My training has focused on the Big Lifts (Deadlift, Squats) and hope to eventually get into Olympic exercises once skill and strength allow! Picked up these shoes as part of the arsenal and couldn't be happier. During all squat variations (front, split, back) my feet are planted like granite and my confidence and work rate have skyrocketed. Highly recommend for anyone looking to up their Big Lifts!
I am a basketball official, have been for 40 years now. Always looking for the next best thing to help get me up and down the court. Have learned that the lighter the shoe the less I have to carry with me each and every step. That translates into better movement and less fatigue so I can do a better job adjusting to make sure I have the best look possible and get where I need to be to see the entire play each and every time. I work a lot of games in the local high school and youth development leagues around Portland and Vancouver each season. I look to these shoes to get me through the riggers of the game I love. Have yet to actually try them out and will update this at a later time as the new season is coming.
I was sceptical at first about buying these expensive shows, however these are very well made and hopefully will last a lifetime. Fits perfectly, my feet are wide at the top but it still fits fine with no discomfort. Made a huge difference in terms of flexibility and allowing me to lift without bending back. Holds the ground solid which allows you to lift more weight. Well worth the investment.
At first they were a bit tight but after a few training sessions and games they've molded to my foot and are much more comfortable now. The one really nice thing about this shoe in relation to others is that the sole is quite thin and the front of the shoe is much closer in feel to a classic cleat than it is to a sneaker. The touch is nice and the thin sole means you have a more direct contact with the ball and the floor. Overall they're quite comfortable but the tightness of the shoe limits the insoles you can use with these. Plan ahead and buy a half size larger if you need to wear insoles. As for the look I'm not a big fan of these super bright and super loud boots. I'm sure a younger player would enjoy the style better. The one thing that struck me was how synthetic looking the synthetic components of this shoe are. I'm a fan of leather personally. Overall I purchased them because they were fairly cheap and I needed a pair to play indoor ASAP. For the price I paid (about 50$ USD) I found these to be worthwhile. If you can get them for less even better.
This shoes are great for running and some trail hiking. After some miles of break-ins they seem to conformed with your feet as you use them everyday. Very light and flexible to my feet. Maybe if Adidas will use some real leather they will look great and add more value.
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.
I was looking for new shoes for general work outs, local dry weather trail walking and casual wear. I saw the Kanadia TR7 in numerous colours and then these on offer so I grabbed a pair. These have worked out to be such quality and an amazing bargain. Straight from the box I got no chafing or blisters. I get hot feet and the ventilation on these is amazing. The grip on all surfaces encountered so far has been brilliant. They are also so lightweight it's unreal but so far the soles are more than tough enough from the off reading. I have recommended these to some friends. Well chuffed.
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!
Very comfortable shoes. And holding up quite well after a few months working two jobs, still look new and tread is hardly worn. Order my size and fit great. They stay tied too. Look nice and the black color is necessary for one job. Very good traction sometimes almost too good. Overall typical Adidas comfort and durability with this pair. Gave 4 stars instead of 5 because one shoe had a very slight defect in the sole in the front by the toe, almost wanted to send them back when i received them but glad i didn't. The defect is more me being picky, you can't notice it unless you're analyzing the shoe.
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.
Just like all the other reviews these are a solid pair of shoes, I hover between size 8 and 8.5 so I got 8 and they were slightly too small, but it definitely helped my squat regardless, they're well made, etc...
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.
The shoes excel on jagged surfaces and fit perfectly. However my review contradicts most other reviews, I do a local parkrun occasionally and when the course is damp, the grip is very low meaning that I have to take it easy round corners. Slightly deceiving for a shoe that looks to have a grippy sole in all conditions.
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 was advised to order a half size down to get a really snug but comfortable fit. They fit very well. The stability in these shoes is amazing. Hit a new PR on my squats the first leg day that I used these shoes. They look awesome. I really like the velcro strap for metatarsal support. The raised heel makes deadlifting in them a little awkward. Still doable though.
These Spring blades are a design made in heaven. Not only do they look good, but feel good as well. My brothers who never ask about my clothes and shoes, were intrigued by the unique design and now have bought their own pair. That's a first. I am glad I bought these shoes.
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'd like to first address the issue of sizing, which seems to be a hotbutton issue in these reviews. These shoes are very standard according to Adidas sizing. I've owned a past versions of Kanadias and if anything I'd suggest these run small. At any rate, my 9.5 (USA) Kanadia TR7s fit exatly like my 9.5 Boston 5s. These are trail runners, made to be worn in adverse weather and accommodate warmer more supportive socks. I'm grateful the toebox isn't tight--so my foot can splay naturally under the pressure of my body weight and I can wear warmer socks. (I'm of the belief that if I can't splay my toes wide open in a shoe then I'm impeding them.) Not attempting a smaller size than my usual would've saved me the hassle of swapping shoes back and forth for my regular size. The reason these runners are a slight step down from say the Kanadia 5 is that the outsole isn't as soft and pliable, nor is the upper: the upper used to be a rubbery synthetic cage over a knit material but that rubbery material has been replaced by a stiffer faux-nubuck . Still a great shoe line, but one that wasn't in need of revamping, though they are now more all-purpose due to the lighter weight and lower-profile tread. Now more weather-resistant too.
I've had trouble getting the right size in this shoe, you have to order a size that will fit your foot like a sock. First I ordered an 7.5 but was too big so I returned it. Then I ordered a 7 and 6.5, the 7 was still just a little big in the toe and width. The 6.5 for some reason was bigger than the 7 and was closer to a 7.5 or an 8. So I have now returned those and ordered another 6.5 hoping I don't get another defective shoe in this size. Overall the shoe is comfortable and will be even better when I get the right size. It should be noted this is a common issue when I buy shoes which is why I buy from Adidas since it is free shipping and returns so I can order multiple sizes and not worry about shipping costs. The mall and shoe stores rarely have my size shoe in stock or have very limited selection.
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.
