Adidas' sturday midsole setup for CrazyLight 2016

The CLB 2016 Primeknit has Boost cushioning in the midsole. Although full-length, the forefoot cushion feels much firmer than the heel, giving the shoe a responsive pop during takeoff and a plush strike during landing.

Dynamic outsole configuration of CLB 2016 Primeknit

The shoe utilizes an aggressive herringbone traction pattern on the outsole–akin to that of a tire tread. Continental rubber is used, giving it a thumbs-up for outdoor use.

The outsole is dual-density, which means that the rubber compound on the ball of the foot is firmer than the rest of the outsole. This ensures that the shoe can be used on any surface.
