Even though the CrazyTrain’s are excellent performing shoes and quite possibly my favorite pick at the moment, they’re not leagues better than their peers.
The best way that I can describe using these shoes is that they are extremely responsive training shoes.
A complete training shoe great for running with exceptional comfort.
To best describe the shoe..it is the most comfortable uncomfortable shoe to wear.
A durable rubber compound is used in the outsole of the CrazyTrain Elite. It is designed to provide protection on various types of surfaces.
It also features a multidirectional tread pattern. It aims to accommodate ample traction during various types of movement.
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.
The lateral side of the shoe is reinforced with a TPU bar. It is meant to keep the foot stable during side-to-side movements.
The CrazyTrain Elite features an upper made of tightly-woven textile. This is claimed to be a durable material that is able to withstand numerous rope climbs.
The trainer utilizes rubber overlays which are strategically placed in the areas prone to high abrasion. These include the toe box, the outer side of the midfoot, and the heel part.
It also features an additional TPU rubber compound on the midfoot to protect the upper unit from rope burns during rope-climbing activities.
