Reinforced midsole

The midsole of the CrazyTrain Elite is made of Adidas’ boost technology. It utilizes a unique process that amalgamates tiny cushioning capsules into one unit. This process gives the boost its Styrofoam-look and the ability to be compressed and bounce back to its original form. A similar boost platform is found on a more recent Adidas training shoe, the Pureboost Trainer.
