Who should buy the Adidas CrazyPower Trainer
Created as a companion for plyometrics and weightlifting enthusiasts, Adidas CrazyPower Trainer boasts of its durability and its roomy forefoot area for added ease during weightlifting activities. It is a solid choice if:
- You are looking to improve your performance when squatting and lifting weights.
- Your fitness routine involves a lot of toe splaying.
- You are looking for a shoe with both durability and style.
Multi surface-optimized outsole
The Adidas CrazyPower Trainer’s outsole is powered by the TRAXION technology for improved traction on multiple directions and surfaces.
The sole’s pattern is different between the two versions: the forefoot treads are protruding in the men’s version while they are concave for the women’s.
On the other hand, the heel area has a pattern that features inverted Vs and two-columned ridges for the men’s version while the women’s version has simpler lengthwise ridges.
Abrasion protected outsole
The sole’s instep has rope grips installed to improve performance during rope climbing activities while protecting the shoe against abrasions.
The Adidas CrazyPower Trainer’s lightweight midsole uses the PRO MODERATOR technology, a 1.55-mm-thick material made of TPU that considerably lessens the overall shoe weight. It provides support that steadies the heel. The shoe’s heel drop of 3 mm provides a low-to-the-ground feel and an equal weight distribution, two factors that improve weightlifting stance.
The upper of the Adidas CrazyPower Trainer has a stiffer construction compared to other cross-training shoes. It is made of textile and synthetic materials to deliver steady support. To further improve the sturdiness during weightlifting, the forefoot has been widened to enable natural toe splay.
An RPU protective cage overlay surrounds the façade of the shoe for improved durability in high-stress areas.
The front area is equipped with a raised toe cap to secure and protect the foot.
Hidden behind the main fabric is a cozy textile lining that staves off skin irritation.
A thin foam is placed in the collar to cushion the top part of the foot and to prevent accidental shoe removals.
