Officially unveiled today, the adidas adiZero Crazy Light is just that at only 9.8 ounces… crazy light, crazy right? Derrick Rose will bring this all new performance model with him in the Playoffs as the Bulls enter the Post Season with the league’s best record.
Two years in the making, the adidas Innovation Team conjured up the lightest basketball shoe to date modeled after the human foot; what better canvas to use than the appendage the product will house during game play. Featuring a revolutionary new SPRINTSKIN upper less than 1mm thick seamlessly bonded to the nylon base significantly reducing weight and adding increased support and strength.
A SPRINTFRAM heel counter and TORSION SYSTEM are bonded together in a way that will allow maximum weight reduction, energy return and motion control. In addition, each eyelet acts as a load bearing source which corresponds with each web spar to support the wearer during hard cuts. 360 degrees of ventilation is impressive with the translucent nylon upper as well.
The adiZero Crazy Light traction system has varied engineered thickness to ensure maximum grip in high wear perimeter zones, and less thickness and weight in low perimeter zones like the midfoot. It also features longitudinal grooves in the heel and forefoot to provide support during extreme forefoot cuts.
The adiZero Crazy Light will be available June 3 in four colorways for $130 including sharp blue/white, black/red/white, grey/white/neon green and red/white. It will roll out in six additional team colorways through September and will be available at Foot Locker, Eastbay and www.shopadidas.com.
