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 love love love these shoes. They are smaller than the picture makes them look, but in the best way possible. they are extremely comfortable, much like walking on memory foam. the arch support is outstanding. Two things that did not bother me but might be a problem for others: 1.) the mesh is very thin. if you are looking for a shoe to wear in the winter, this is probably not for you 2. the back does come up very high. i can definitely see how this might be problematic/a cause for blisters for some people. i have a pretty arched tendon back there so it's not a problem at all for me. Another thing to note, the bottom mesh is not connected to the sole in the middle. this is not a problem at all it's just not something i noticed before purchasing. (Also the aglets are pink and blue) Overall, this is probably my favorite sneaker i've ever purchased. i looove these 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.
For some reason, red adidas T's in clima-anything instead of cotton are very hard to find, so I was happy to find this shirt online to go with my NMD's. It is comfortable, even for bigger guys, as it is not too narrowly cut. It is high quality, an easy recommendation for me.
15 yr old got blisters on back of ankles, she wanted to see if she could get used to but the shoe ripped within 2 weeks just wearing around school so we sent it back. Sad because she loved them and would've been comfortable besides blisters, they just come up to high in the back.
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.
Perfection -- I've worn the original Ultraboost or the UltraboostST in my past three marathons. Something made be decide to try #uncaged. BEST. SHOE. EVER. Has everything the others do in cushion but my entire foot has truly found its happy place -- also affords much better opportunity for ankle flexion ... same sole as the other models which do fine in rain (e.g. BOS 2015). I'm sure I'll have to get a pair in red too!
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.
Good for running on cool mornings or days. I have some older Adidas which is 3 inches shorter in length, and sends ideal in length. To long is just wrong, haha! I love Adidas though, and using their web store is great, no shipping and I'm like you and look for a sale. Adidas is function and style. I'm 5'11", 180 lbs, and prefer large size, great fit but would prefer just a few inches shorter in length... But taller dudes prob like this length so i understand.
5'7" 32/33 waist, ordered SM (heather). Perfect fit (loose but not baggy). Very light, cool, airy synthetic fabric. Able to workout w/o thinking about my shorts. I purchased the gray/heather, and the 'heather' is not too pronounced (which is good, because other colors look a little fake online).
The rise is too long for someone 5'9 and fit. The shorts (size small) come down to my knees. These are supposed to be soccer shorts not baggy shorts. The material is very light and feels great. Shame about the poor cut.
First of all, I am very disappointed that Adidas discontinued the Predator and Nitrocharge series'--these were my go-to shorts for years. Moving on.... I am 5'9" 215 pounds and very picky about my training/running shorts. With that said, the Cool 365 shorts are great. High quality material and perfect fit. Size large gives me plenty of room around the waist and the length is perfect (hangs a few inches above my knees). The zipper pockets are a nice feature. I will likely get another pair.
I own 3 pairs of these shoes. I love my first 2 pairs that have more of the cloth type material. It stretches just enough but fits my foot like a glove. My 3rd pair I don't really care for. The top is the mesh material. It is to stretchy and my foot feels like I have zero support on the sides. I love the elevated arch and boost. I feel like I'm walking on air. I wish they would put some piece of support at the toes because when I where them to the gym my feet slide forward with circuit training. I know there are trainers similar to these but I tried them and didn't love them. I hope they make another pair black and white mix for the fall. Mine from last year are the favorite pair of tennis shoes I've ever owned!
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.
I just bought this today at store. Love this shoes so much. One of the most comfortable shoes I've had. The middle part hold my feet so nice. I want to buy another pair differeny colors..waiting until sale ..hehe
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.
I always go with Adidas shoes, and was super excited when I ordered these. But they were really uncomfortable. Other Adidas I never even had to 'break in', but these didn't get any less comfortable with wear. I first tried walking around town and my calves got sore, I ran and my soles got sore quick, I boxed and the floating arch support felt like no support at all. My ankles were slipping and hurting so bad after one workout. I'll be returning and trying another style. I still love Adidas for style and comfort, but this one wasn't for me.
I absolutely love these shoes! I had surgery on my right ankle last November and I have noticed a huge difference in my walk. It makes my foot feel very stable and balanced. They almost have a bouncy like feel to them in the heel and they are super light. I'd say the only thing I really don't like are the 3 stripes design on the top of the foot, but other than that they're super cute aswell! So glad I purchased, these are worth every penny in my opinion.
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.
Arch Perfection but...the back comes up so high that it gave me blisters after wearing for 2 hours! I have high arches so I loved the arch support but sadly I will need to return due to the back. So bummed!
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).
