Adidas Crazy Team 2017's stable midsole setup

The Adidas Crazy Team 2017 has a full-length adiPRENE+ in the midsole. This technology is basically a responsive rubber that caters to the needs of the moving foot, especially during take-off.

The cushion gives a slight bounce and protects the foot during impact. The shoe also features a wide outrigger that provides a stable base to move in.

Outsole configuration of Crazy Team 2017

The shoe uses a multidirectional wave herringbone pattern on the outsole. The pattern alternates thin and thick wavy lines.

Dust may get clogged in between the thin lines; however, a light wipe is all you need to reactivate the grip.

Since the outsole is made of solid rubber, it’s OK to use the shoe outdoors.

Stable lockdown system

Given the right size, the shoe’s mesh upper provides a tight fit and conforms to the foot after a few wears. A peak on the lateral side of the midsole gives support to the foot and clamps it down when the laces are tightened.

The shoe has a full-length lacing system that helps lock the foot in place. The padded tongue ensures comfort during lockdown.

Additionally, the midsole cups up to half of the user’s heel in order to give support to the foot.
