I did not like playing in these.
The Crazy Explosive 2017 is a very solid model.
The 2017 Crazy Explosive was an unexpected ride for me. Yeah, the shoe is a very versatile option for just about anyone, it has sick traction, support, BOOST has never been better.
Sad to say, but this time the regular version let me down big time.
The Crazy Explosive is definitely my go-to shoe right now.
The traction on these shoes is amazing.
