Video reviews and unboxing
Adidas does a great job of living up to the Crazy Explosive name. They were able to improve a platform that already works. The Adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit made minor tweaks to the 2016 formula and the result is a better performing sneaker.
The forged Primeknit upper provides adaptive support and ultralight comfort. The shoes also feature an anatomical lacing system that reduces pressure on the foot, mesh inserts for added airflow, and Boost that helps harness your raw energy.
Cushion. The Adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 PK features full-length Boost cushioning that provides enhanced comfort, responsiveness, energy return, impact protection, and court feel.
The midsole is wrapped by a lateral TPU roll cage for stability and supported by an infinity shank plate that acts like a spring. This setup provides added energy return for heightened control when taking off to the basket.
Traction. The Adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit has a grippy rubber outsole with a Coral-inspired traction pattern. The traction delivers commanding grip specifically designed for light footwork and explosive gameplay. This also allows 360-degree grip on all court types and conditions.
Length and Width. The Adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit fits true to size however it runs a little narrow. Wide-footers are advised to make the necessary adjustments.
Lockdown. The Adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit features a one-piece cleatie upper, internal heel counter, and an anatomical lace system. The sock-like fit of the cleatie, support of the heel counter, and a fifth eyelet keep the heel in place. The wide lacing system wraps the entire foot and allows a more secure hold.
The Adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit features a forged TPU yarn construction.This new forged Primeknit creates an elevated wave pattern across the upper, and it adds lightweight durability while maintaining flexibility.
This build provides optimal stability for sharp moves while staying ultralight for quickness.
The high-cut design of the sock-like ankle collar provides an adaptive fit without restricting ankle movement. This also completes the silhouette of the Adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 PK.
This highly anticipated shoe has generated a lot of buzz thanks to its aggressive design, full-length Boost cushioning, and high-arching sock-like collar. There are several colorways to look out for, including a few player editions headlined by Andrew Wiggins of the Minnesota Timberwolves and Kristaps Porzingis of the New York Knicks.
The Adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit comes in mostly monochromatic hues. A few player edition colorways for the brand’s top stars were also sold by selected retailers.
