  • The Adidas Crazytrain LT is a cross-training shoe designed to keep up with rigorous workouts. The upper is made of lightweight sandwich mesh. It delivers structured support without compromising the breathability of the material.
  • The footgear uses zoned polyurethane (PU) overlays. These components add lateral support to the upper.
  • The midsole is made of the Bounce technology. This cushioning platform aims to deliver a comfortable footbed which reduces the shock absorbed by the foot. It is also designed to be flexible to promote natural movement.
  • Rubber lines the underside of this model. It features zoned tread patterns that facilitate multidirectional movements and better traction.

The Crazytrain LT is only available in men’s sizes. Lengthwise, it follows standard shoe measurements. It comes in a D - Medium width profile. Adidas offers tips and tricks on getting an accurate foot measurement and shoe size in its size chart section.

The Adidas Crazytrain LT employs rubber in its outsole. This compound is durable, flexible, and has anti-slip properties.

The traction offered by the rubber is enhanced with the zoned tread patterns. This design also supports quick direction changes.

Like most workout shoes from Adidas, the Crazytrain LT uses the Bounce material for its midsole unit. The performance and comfort of this sole unit are not affected by cold or warm temperatures. It is designed to be flexible and attenuate shock to prevent discomfort or injuries to the foot.

The sole unit forms an outrigger on the lateral side of the midfoot. It adds lateral stability to the trainer. At the back, the platform also extends outwards, creating a bumper-like structure to protect the heel and prevent dragging when performing handstand wall push-ups.

The Adidas Crazytrain LT utilizes a lightweight sandwich mesh upper. This material uses two layers of mesh fused together to provide structured support without weighing the trainer down. The fabric also keeps the foot chamber aerated.

The footwear has zone PU overlays on the lateral side of the upper. They are designed to reflect the iconic Adidas Three Stripes branding while also delivering lateral support.

A traditional lacing-up closure keeps the foot securely inside the footgear. The anti-skid feature of the laces ensures that it is kept tied during training.

Keeping the foot comfortable are the plush tongue and collar. The tongue prevents the laces from digging into the instep. As for the lightly padded collar, it keeps the foot locked down and prevents chafing in the ankle area.
