adidas has a new basketball shoe, the adidas Crazy Quick. I got a pair of this shoe in electric colorway and I can't wait to share to you my experience with the shoe.
QUICK AIN'T FAIR
While I was playing basketball using the Crazyquicks, I noticed that accelerating and changing directions became easier for me to do. I was able to move quicker and react swifter while wearing the Crazyquicks. That's the most significant difference that I observed with the Crazyquicks. Quick ain't really fair.
And also, the unique design of the out-sole of the shoe i.e. the flex grooves found on it, really worked and helped me move quicker.
The multi-directional herringbone pattern of the shoe really worked. I tried sprinting from one direction to another and the traction was always there. I didn't experience any slippage. I used it on both the hardwood and concrete courts and the traction was very consistent. Traction grade: A
The comfort and fit that the TechFit Technology offers also worked well with the outsole. The support and flexibility of the TechFit upper of the shoe really made my feet move quicker on the hardcourt primarily because it envelopes and adapts to my feet.
As we all know, the TechFit Technology fends off sweat. Thus, when I played using the Crazyquicks, my feet were very comfortable despite the shoes' limited ventilation. It was like magic. My feet didn't feel uneasy despite the humidity outside. Comfort grade: A
The shoes' cushioning was good. Although some say that the low-to-the-ground feature of the shoe would affect its cushioning, I beg to disagree because it was just A- Ok. When I jumped to take a shot or to rebound the ball I had no problem with the cushioning. It was just right for pointguards and shooting guards. Again, there was no leg pain, no knee pain and no calf pain after I played using the Crazyquicks. I can guarantee you that. Cushioning grade: B+
The ankle and foot support of the shoe was quite nice. The soft foamy collar was very useful especially when I move laterally. The collar will also let you use the adidas speedwraps for added support and faster movement. It also has an abs plastic at the back for ankle support. Support grade: A+
This shoe is really nice and very useful for Guards. I recommend this to pointguards and shooting-guards who love to drive to the basket and move quick on the court.
You may check-out the shoe in major adidas branches nationwide. The srp of this shoe is 7,995 Php.
