micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
I had such high expectations about this shoe, after a .5 change in size for being too narrow, I switched to 11, used it once and now I am unfortunately unable to return. I own another 3 pair of Boosts and this is the most uncomfortable by far, the arch pain the inner plastic body of the shoe causes makes this unwearable. 180 dollars down the drain.
I read the reviews saying that these thing hurt, and they sure do. In fact, they were like spikes in my feet for the first three days. Then, once i broke them in they feel amazing. It's one of those things, if they hurt, you probably need them. The reason I was okay purchasing was that I've seen this "foot massage spike thingy" technology before so I knew there was a method to the madness. They feel great on my feet now.
The new look was out of this world and had to try them for college baseball. The ultra boost in the heel is beyond comfortable and hugs your foot very nicely. Very light as well, forms to your foot and very good grip.
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.
I love these shoes! I'm training for football and had a pair of nikes and the comfort level was night and day. Really recommend these for quick lateral movements, balance based workouts, and lifts. Extremely comfortable and well worth the money. Still wish I got the navy blue and red ones when I had the chance :,(
Only one complaint... the back/top of the shoe rubs against my heel. Have to wear these shoes with taller socks or they'll rub your heels raw. Other than that, these shoes are awesome. Super comfortable (as long as I'm wearing the right socks), great to run in, and they look great.
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.
Had the pure boosts before this, these surpass those in comfort which tells you a lot given how comfortable the pure boosts already are. Love the style of the uncaged version too bad the other colors are sold out.
Amazingly comfortable. I want to wear these everywhere. One downside is it runs large. I usually wear size 11 shoes and the size 11 of these was about a half size to full size too big. But still amazing.
It's amazingly comfortable. It's like foam but what's better is thereally is also foam /padding on the upper part of the sandal . The part with the adidas logo. A must buy Sizing : my tts is 8.5 so I went with an 8 and fits perfect
Different than typical Weightlifting Shoe. The Boa Laces are very nice (easy to get in and out of shoe). Very stable platform and solid during OLY Lifts. I would still have preferred a mid-foot strap for these. It does take a few lifts to get the shoe really broke in and snug. I get many complements about the look of the shoes. Overall I am very pleased with the purchase.
I am a huge fan of the original Adidas Ultra Boost running shoes. Having said that the only reason I'm not giving this shoe 5 stars is because the new elastic band they have added above where the shoe traditionally would stop has a seam running down the middle of it that comes to an end at the top and it destroys the back of my ankles when I run. There is only one pair of socks I own that are high enough sit in that same area and cushion it so for now band aids it is.
Best shoe I own! I own a few pair of nice shoes and these are the go to when I need a comfortable pair. I just wish that adidas would have more in stock. I've been on the website for two weeks straight trying to purchase the Original Ultra Boost.
It's a great shoe until you make a sharp turn, then your foot slips off the insole and rips the styrofoam looking material away from the knit part of the shoe. The comfortability of the shoe is tremendous but I feel that adidas could have done a little more to ensure this doesn't happen.
Great running shoes. The cushioning is the best that I have ever had in a shoe. Very comfortable and there is a very noticeable difference when running with these. The only slight complaint that I have with these is that I usually run with ankle socks and because of the design of the shoe my ankle ares is rubbing against the lip of the shoe which is slightly irritating but I think will get better as I break them in. These are a bit expensive but for me I think they are definitely worth it because they are far and away the best running shoes I have ever worn.
I'm coming off the heels of getting a pair of NMDs. My first legit shoe purchase in years. So, that was cool. After taking a second look at my current rotation, I thought I needed another lifestyle/athletic shoe for chilling and going out. Enter the uncaged ultra boosts. The primeknit is detailed with multiple patterns, and the fit is ridiculous. I tried on a 9.5, they were perfect. I tried on a 10, they were perfect. Then, I tried on a 10.5 and those were perfect. The only size available in the navy blue (no gray) was a 10.5. That being said, "I had to cop them". Most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. A minimalist's dream. I'm glad my purchasing power has increased.
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).
The sole has got to be the most comfortable one my feet have been in yet. You can feel the reflex of the "boost" when walking and it feels great. I bought two pairs, one red and one navy. they are amazing!
After three months, both of these cleats were shredded on the sides where the toes flex. I've bought many many cleats over the years and this has never happened. Absolutely cannot recommed these based on unbelievably poor quality.
My regular ultra boost is 8.5. So i order the uncaged for the same size. But the uncaged model is way smaller than the regular unltrboost even they are the same size 8.5. the shoes is very narrow. You shall have to tell the customers to get minimum of half size bigger.
These are the greatest lifting shoes! My first purchase of lifters were the Powerlifters and just having those I could tell there was a significant advantage when performing olympic lifts. After having those for 2 years I broke down and spent some money on a top of the line pair and man I should have done this long ago. Super stable in all positions! The BOA tie system is also pretty awesome. Super fast to remove and put back on which is a huge plus in some workouts. If there is a workout with a lifting portion right before a longer cardio session these make the transition into my 360.3s so easy. For example, Grace into Hellen, wore these for Grace and then into the 360.3s for Hellen. Also they look amazing! I so want their to be a blue LED in the clear heal though that I can light up when I hit a PR! As far as size, I had the powerlifters in a 10 and they were a little big. These I got in a 9, which is also the size I wear in the 360.3's
The heel lift is perfect for me and the platform is great. I love the Boa lace. My gripes are they are too narrow in the toes and loose in the heels. I wear 13.5 for a perfect fit in the AdiPower, but these run small, had to get 14. The 13.5 smashed my toes but the midfoot and heel were a better fit. I have yet to do any Oly lifts in them, but for my overhead and front squats, these are perfect for my limited ROM. I prefer the AdiPower for back squats. My perfect Oly lifter would be the Leistung platform (stability & heel raise) on an AdiPower upper (for fit) with the Boa system.
This is my second pair of ultraboost and i'm still in love, but I like the caged better because the back stitching of the uncaged was digging into my Achilles heel but i was wearing no show socks. Other than that they are perfect quality, comfort, and perfect aesthetically.
love the feel of boost on the shoe... the torsion system gets torn up pretty quickly and isn't the most stylish shoe... but works great for cross country and has a lot of mileage with minimum signs of being worn!
