These shoes live up to the standards and reviews everyone has said before. There are a few issues that I have, which may or may not be a deal breaker. I went down a size which is perfect length and width now, but there is still heel slippage. My friends have the same shoe and also encounter the back part of the shoe slipping while playing. The loose back seems to also affect the shoe laces loosening up. I like my shoes nice and snug and hate to stop to retie my laces. The biggest issue with the white shoes is that Adidas did not use continental rubber for the sole. At first the traction does its job, but eventually you'll find yourself wiping the bottom every other possession in the game. This is annoying! Overall these shoes are great though. For its price, there really isn't anything that can argue with it unless you grab the Crazy Explosives. If you're looking for a low top shoe that gives you the freedom to move like a guard and so hard cuts, this is your shoe. The boost sole is also super comfortable and works for impact protection.
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.
I was skeptical on buying these shoes at first, but decided I would get them to use as shoes to practice in this season. The moment I opened them up I was in love! I am a huge fan of all white shoes and the color is great, the look is great and they feel awesome! They are a little tight but I have yet to break them in! Totally would buy again.
The cushioning are A1, looks great. Overall i'm pretty satisfy with the shoes. But, i suggest to go full size down, i went half size down the first time, and they were still long, so i went down a full size, it will get a better lock down.
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.
Adidas people PLEASE make a wide version of these shoes! They look great and all the poeple seem to like them! I love them but I have a very wide feet and does not fit me/I have a big problem finding shoes to fit me/! I am sure there are other people with the same problem!
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.
The shoe is great, I always feel a bit of sore under my patella when I land in my previous shoes but I have none in the crazylight 2016. However I really dissapointed by Adidas Indonesia since they sell this shoe only in it's white on white colorway and the price is around $250. it's more than a double than the original price in the US. Adidas should do better pricing strategy since it's way more expensive than the rival signature brand.
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.
Truly pains me that I had to return these due to inconsistent sizing and fit. The left shoe fit great but the right was way off. Traction and cushion were all time. I had the most issues with the shallow heel cup and the lacing was a bit off for me. Really too bad because these are one of the most comfortable hoop shoes I've ever put on. Lock down was just a little too unstable for me personally. If the ankle collar was just 2 cm higher in the heel, I think they would've been perfect.
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.
The look and comfort of this shoe are both great. However, I have had my foot completely slip out of the shoe THREE times while making cuts in a basketball game. I tied them tighter and it still happened. That is the sign of a flawed product when it comes to performance.
Adidas Crazylight Boost low is by far the best basketball shoe ive played in. Now, Iam not a hooper but i do play rec and with Friends. The quality of the shoe is great and the bost is felt during play. Pretty good traction, very comfotable, and your feet Will not Hurt afterwards. The only problem is the fit of The shoe, you need to go half a size down. Other than that you Will get your moneys worth, HANDS DOWN.
Great low top shoe. Full length boost provided solid cushioning and the upper of the shoe fits very comfortably and snug. The continental rubber used on the sole makes for excellent traction. Beware, the shoe runs half a size to a full size too big. So if you wear an 11, go ahead and get a 10 or 10 1/2
Not sure why people are so in love with this shoe. The Crazylight Boost Low 2016 is definitely an above average shoe (especially for how much it costs in comparison to competitors). Pros: Boost- very comfortable-- different feel from Ultra BOOST because the BOOST is more dense and compacted Traction- A1, awesome/great/phenomenal. The use of continental rubber definitely helps and makes it more the outsole more sticky and durable Material: Jacquard is very durable and definitely better than most fused uppers. Flexible and soft enough to provide comfort and durable enough to not tear or rip easily. Cons: Lockdown- HORRIBLE. Lots of heel slippage when walking, running, and jumping. I thought lockdown would be a given in 2016 for any basketball shoe (even if it's a low top because they do exist) Fit- WTH?! 1. The shoe is outrageously extra long so going down a half size is actually like going up a half size in a normal shoe. If you go down a FULL size in the Crazylight BOOST 2016 then you're actually getting your normal size that you would purchase for any other shoe (I hope that makes sense) 2. There is only 4 lace holes/ eyelets! Why adidas did this is beyond me and it doesn't make sense. I don't think that is related to any heel slippage, but rather having only 4 lace holes doesn't keep the foot from sliding around in the shoe and keeping the shoe molded/hugging your foot. It's very abnormal to only have 4 lace holes when most others shoes average 6-8 lace holes which seems to get the job done lockdown wise. Overall, I would still consider this shoe to be above average because of the great traction (which you can't find in a lot of shoes out there for some reason) and because of the BOOST which makes it a very comfortable shoe and great for absorbing impact. I gave the shoe 3 starts because it's an above average low top basketball shoe, but lacks a very effective lockdown which is essential to me because if a basketball shoe doesn't have great lockdown then I might as well play in tennis shoes.
I was disappointed in the lack of cushion on these shoes. I am used to wearing Ultra Boost off court and D Rose 6 on court and was hoping for the same feel--not even close. If you are looking for that boost feel, go with the Crazy Explosive instead. That said, if you like less cushion and more court feel these might be perfect for you. They are comfortable, but just don't give that boost feel I was expecting. I have a slightly wide foot and true to size on these was perfect for me.
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.
After 6 hours on slight dust wooden floor, comfort level was good, bounce and heel-toe transition very good, traction outstanding, material seems durable. Having narrow feet and weak ankles, I am amazed how supportive a low-top can be.
