Highlights of the Adidas CrazyTrain Pro

The Adidas CrazyTrain Pro is specially designed to fulfill the demands of multifunctional training sessions. The women’s and men’s versions have different designs specific to each gender’s tastes and needs.

- The women’s model has an upper made of layered textile. This lightweight material enhances ventilation. It has a distinct padded collar that is tailored to fit the woman’s proportions. It is built to conform to the ankle. The adjustable medial and lateral flaps hug the midfoot for a truly customized fit. It also serves as forefoot and midfoot support.

- On the other hand, the men’s iteration has a synthetic and engineered textile with a sock-like forefoot fit. It locks down the foot and prevents it from moving around during workouts. The side panels and heel have been reinforced for additional support. Regardless of the differences, both of the uppers have the same lightness, comfort, and breathability.

The midsole uses the brand's proprietary Bounce technology to deliver responsive cushioning. It also cradles the foot to give a cozy underfoot sensation despite the strenuous foot movements involved in vigorous workouts.

The outsole also varies for the two versions. Both are made of rubber, but the men’s tread has a more compact micro-herringbone pattern for seamless multi-directional movements.  Meanwhile, the women’s version has a looser pattern that’s designed for improved traction and forefoot flexibility.

Adidas CrazyTrain Pro size and fit

The Adidas CrazyTrain Pro comes in both men’s and women’s versions. It tends to run on the large side, so it may be necessary to order half-a-size to a full size down. The width measurement is D – Medium for the men’s version and B – Medium for the women’s version.

Outsole

The Adidas CrazyTrain Pro has a non-marking outsole that is made of rubber for durability and sticky traction. This is where the similarities end for the two versions.

The men’s variant has a micro-herringbone tread pattern to allow for easier lateral and horizontal changes of direction. On the other hand, the women’s shoe has a multi-patterned tread that is specially designed to promote natural forefoot flexion and stronger grip.

Midsole

The Bounce technology is utilized in the midsole of the Adidas CrazyTrain Pro. It provides a firm, responsive and bouncy cushioning. It also offers flexibility, impact protection, and responsiveness with every step. This type of cushioning can also be found on a more recent Adidas Alphabounce Trainer.

Upper

The Adidas CrazyTrain Pro has a differing upper for the men’s and women’s version. The men’s shoe has a lightweight and breathable upper made from synthetic and engineered textiles. It has a snug fit at the forefoot and fortified heel and side panels for a locked-down fit and optimal support.

An external heel counter is installed at the bottom for additional support during fast movements on agility drills. It prevents the accidental heel slippage by locking in the foot into the shoe.

The footwear is lined with a comfortable textile lining. It envelops the foot in its plush softness and wicks away sweat.

It uses a traditional lacing system with webbed eyelets that tightens the medial and lateral areas. Aside from adjusting the tightness of the shoe, it also delivers lateral support.

On the contrary, the women’s lightweight upper is made of layered textiles for maximum breathability. It is secured with an adjustable forefoot and midfoot support to ensure that the foot stays in place during medial and lateral movements.

It has a padded collar that is specially engineered for the woman’s contours. It conforms to the ankle for additional support.
