adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 Performance Review

The first of these shoes should be Wall’s third pair of shoes, and unfortunately Wall’s contract with Adidas . However, Adidas didn’t give up those sneakers that were good in performance. So luckily, we could see the birth of Crazy Explosive series.

Crazy Explosive is endorsed by Andrew Wiggins, while Boost’s excellent cushioning, Geofit’s inner shoe’s sense of comfort and external shoe design support make these shoes one of the most popular sneakers in the summer of 2016. After that, Crazy Explosive Low was born, allowing more players to choose their shoes.

And what we’re going to see today is the latest Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit

With all of the success that Boost has brought adidas Running and adidas Originals, the brand’s basketball imprint is still leagues behind the juggernaut that is Nike Basketball. It’s not too hard to see why with the Swoosh’s signature athletes ranging from LeBron, KD, Kyrie, and Paul George. But that might all change soon thanks to the upcoming adidas Crazy Explosive 17, a shoe that we’re excited to see both on and off the court thanks to a sleek woven Primeknit upper, full-length Boost cushioning with a sleek TPU overlay, and a sock-like ankle collar that rivals last year Hyperdunk 2017 Elite. 

For the material : the adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit outsole looks a lot like an ant farm so I have dubbed the pattern then “ants in a maze traction pattern.” Though the Primeknit shoe upper part is added to the outside, the filling inside is still thick enough to be believed, so the wrapping  and comfort level is improved. The internal fillings extend to the ankle part and give the ankle certain pressure protection without the built-in / external TPU.

The collar of the shoe sock at the extension is  not the most important for this shoes . Here, adidas has designed the shoe collar more wider and improve the convenience to wear and tear. It has also help  a lot for the stronger friends (such as me) , because of  we need more protection.


For the supporting :Support is nice . Like last version, the adidas Crazy Explosive 2017  has a pretty broad base. especially  if your foot sits inside of the TPU roll cage to offer the lateral support, then you will  love it .There is also the huge infinity shank plate to keep you stable and boost torsional rigidity.  but  for the Jordan’s fans , it is not enough for the material is soft .

For the traction: the traction actually nice , but it is not easy to keep  for the material. ‘Ants in a maze traction pattern”  for some Jordan’s fans , actually it is not good , the material actually a little soft . the traction was cutting through the dust like a hot knife to a stick of butter! I was out there wood grain grippin’ and wiping was very minimal. but it will performance great in the court.

For the cushioning : The adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit retains the same setup as last year’s Crazy Explosive — full-length Boost with a soft TPU cage on the lateral side of the shoe while the medial side exposes the is still  used the Adidas tech  that we love . I have to say it is nice , the TPU cage actually performance well in the court ,also the full length is amazing.

Overall:The adidas Crazy Explosive 2017  is nice ! I love this thing like crazy and it is by far my favorite hoop shoe of 2017 so far.  also the white colorway is not easy to keep clean, It’s number one in my rotation and I’m pretty sure it will be in many of yours as well.

Adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 PK Performance Review

There are 2 colorways will debut ranging from the pristing Crystal White and a Lakers-themed Solar Yellow.

It is uses a yellow vibrant  tooling contrasted by a dark Forged Primeknit upper. Accents in gold at the heel, aglets, and quarter branding offer some pop.It is look fashion and shinning.

For Material, the PrimeKnit material is softer than the FlyKnit, but the PK upper is covered with a layer of glue that increases the firmness. There’s a super thick sponge filling at the top. I’ve never seen a sponge filled with inside of sneakers. I felt hot when I played with thick  socks-like ankles .A sock-like ankle makes this pair easier than ever to slip into while full-length Boost cushioning is wrapped in a TPU roll cage for better traction.

There is a Yellow logo on the heel —“ADIDAS BASKETBALL “

For cushioning .  Full-length Boost cushioning is excellent .The forefoot is soft compare with the Kyrie 3. But it is soft and comfortable .

If you like the zoom unit , maybe it is not meet your required .I like the soft one ,especially when falling down , it is comfortable .

For supporting ,Full length  PrimeKnit material to ensure the stability.And the 3/4 package TPU Cage design of  shoes , at the same time it increase the lateral forefoot which like the Kobe X, AJ29, AJ30 and carbon plate TPU, it can play a great role in stability and anti rollover.The  TPU material are did excellent  job which ensures the stability . That is the reason why I love this shoes so much .

Overall , it is worth to buy . it is a basketball silhouette fit for the rigors of the NBA when it was first leaked a year or so ago.Now it is coming back .
