Cushion. The Adidas Crazy Hustle packs explosive energy into your every step. It features a full-length Bounce midsole to energize all of your on-court movements.

Engineered to optimize energy return, the Adidas Bounce cushioning is perfect for players who give it their all.

Depending on the colorway, the upper is made of either a lightweight textile knit or mesh for increased breathability.
