Prepare to take off with the Adidas Crazy Explosive Low. Get the explosive power you’ll need with every block, steal, and run-out dunk. These basketball shoes are cut low for speed and have a padded collar for stability.

The Crazy Explosive Low features full-length Boost for responsive energy, a TPU roll cage to withstand pressure when advancing hard to the basket, and coral constructed power traction for commanding grip.

Cushion. The Adidas Crazy Explosive Low features a full-length Boost midsole. Boost is Adidas’s most responsive cushioning ever. Its energy-returning properties keep every step charged with an endless supply of light and fast energy.  A TPU roll cage wraps the midsole while Infinity-shaped shanks provide additional midfoot stability.

Traction. The Adidas Crazy Explosive Low has a grippy rubber outsole that wraps up and around the midsole for added traction. The coral power traction pattern delivers natural court feel and commanding grip on any surface.

Length and Width. The Adidas Crazy Explosive Low gets mixed reactions about its fit. Buyers are recommended to try the shoes before purchase.

Lockdown. The Adidas Crazy Explosive Low uses dynamic lacing with a single-piece upper for uncompromised fit, lockdown, and stability.

The anatomical lace system wraps the entire foot, relieving pressure. A molded heel lace system, padded collar, and an internal heel counter ensure a locked-down fit.

The Adidas Crazy Explosive Low features a four-way-stretch upper with raised puff print. This material delivers lightweight support, comfort, durability, and a snug fit.

A Primeknit upper is also available. Primeknit provides premium comfort, fit, and breathability.

The low-top design of the Crazy Explosive allows for enhanced ankle mobility and doesn’t add bulk so you can cruise at top speed.

With a more traditional silhouette and an assortment of tonal colorways constructed of textile and Primeknit uppers, the Adidas Crazy Explosive Low is designed for on and off the court.

Following up on the success of the Crazy Explosive, Adidas Basketball has released an all-new Low silhouette. The Crazy Explosive Low is a refined version of its predecessor, and its design focuses on functionality. The shoe pairs premium technology with unique design elements for a progressive approach to style on and off the court.

The Crazy Explosive Low is what Adidas was missing in its basketball division. Powerful and explosive players like Andrew Wiggins, Nick Young, Iman Shumpert, and Brandon Ingram have been craving a lightweight low-top shoe that doesn’t compromise their ankles.

With full-length Boost, the Crazy Explosive features more Boost technology than any other Adidas basketball shoe.
