Updates to Adidas CrazyTrain 2.0 CloudFoam
- The Adidas CrazyTrain 2.0 Cloudfoam is designed for all-around fitness training. The original version of this model was created with a woman’s foot in mind, but this iteration caters to the male population. Thus, several features have been overhauled.
- Like its predecessor, it uses the Cloudfoam technology for its midsole. This underfoot padding is said to deliver superior comfort and cushion.
- The non-marking rubber outsole protects the midsole from the wear and tear associated with training. This material is durable, flexible and does not easily slip.
- The upper ditched the patterned fabric for a masculine effect. A tightly woven mesh is now used for structure and durable protection.
Adidas CrazyTrain 2.0 CloudFoam size and fit
The CrazyTrain 2.0 Cloudfoam only comes men’s sizes and typically runs true to size. It is available in a standard D - Medium width. The tightly woven mesh and the sock-like construction of the upper are meant to deliver a snug fit. Thus, consumers are advised to try the trainer in person to get a comfortable and secure fit.
A full-length non-marking rubber compound lines the bottom of the CrazyTrain 2.0 Cloudfoam. It is durable, flexible and slip-resistant.
The outsole features a micro-herringbone tread pattern. It facilitates smooth directional changes and enhances the traction of the rubber on most surfaces.
An X-shaped flex groove is found in the forefoot area. It promotes proper foot flexion during multi-directional movements.
The trainer uses Adidas’ proprietary Cloudfoam midsole. This technology is made from ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam that has been engineered to deliver superior cushioning and comfort. It is designed to be durable and spring back to its original form after being compressed. It is more lightweight and more affordable as compared to the Bounce foam, often used in Adidas workout shoes.
The CrazyTrain 2.0 Cloudfoam does not have a separate insole. It uses an integrated heel pad that adds support to the back of the foot.
The Adidas CrazyTrain 2.0 Cloudfoam employs a tightly woven upper. This textile gives the top part its rigidity and, at the same time, breathability which keeps the inside well ventilated. Synthetic overlays protect the toe box, the eyestay, and the lateral and medial sides from abrasion.
It features a sock-like construction that allows it to conform to the shape of the foot. Soft fabric lines the inside to deliver a cozy in-shoe feel even without socks.
A traditional lacing system closes the throat of the trainer to keep the foot securely in place. The lightly padded tongue ensures that the laces don’t cut the instep.
The slightly plush collar keeps the ankle supported. It also prevents accidental shoe removal.
At the back of the trainer is an external heel counter. It anchors the heel to the midsole to avoid wobbling and potential injuries.
