Very comfortable, very responsive, and has great cushioning. Those are thing the prevailing characteristics that I got as feedbacks coming from chosen ballers who attended and participated at the adidas Crazy Light Boost - Titan Trial Run last Saturday action packed morning (7:30 am-9:30am) at the Treston International School in Bonifacio Global City Taguig.
The Ballers, from guards to big men all wore the new Crazy Light Boost not only to test their skills against each other, but also to test the performance of the #GameChanger basketball shoes. I was there to witness every bit of the action, from the killer basketball drills up to the entertaining scrimmage game.

I interviewed a couple of random participants in the Crazy Light Boost Trial Run and I’m happy that they said great things about the shoes.
“No calf pains, no ankle pains etc.. Very comfortable and the traction is also great,” according to the anonymous baller.
Then there’s this guy, his name is TJ Trajano who rated the Crazy Light 4 Boost 10/10 overall in terms of Traction, Ventilation/Comfort, Ankle support/Lockdown Support, and the Boost Cushioning.
TJ is a member of the Titan Players Club that’s why you can bet that he has tried a ton of shoe products. A 10/10 rating on the Crazy Light 4 Boost means a lot to the brand and its potential consumers.

The unique detail of the outsole for better traction. By personal estimation, this can be used either on a harwood court or a clean well painted cement court.

Crazy Light 4 Boost Characteristics:
At 11.6 ounces, the Crazylight Boost remains exceptionally light and every element of the shoe is constructed to maximize the energy benefit of Boost. This includes performance elements such as ShockWeb overlay reinforcement for strength, support, flexibility, forefoot comfort, and premium style, a soft mesh upper for increased comfort, ventilation, and breathability and an all-new collar design with a unique cut that offers the mobility of a low-top and stability of a mid.
The Crazylight Boost features horizontal three stripes placement across the toe to create a sleek, fast aesthetic. The shoe also boasts distinctive gradient color schemes for diverse style to stand out on the court.
Damian Lillard was indeed correct when he explained how this shoe changed the game:
"The Crazy Light 4 Boost compliments my style of play unlike any other shoe,” Portland Trail Blazers NBA All-Star point guard Damian Lillard said. “The immediate comfort you feel when you put on Boost is amazing, and it lasts until the moment you take it off. When you’re an athletic guard in the league, you’re constantly coming down hard over the top of big guys or when you get fouled. With Boost, it’s a lot less impact and more cushioning on my heels.”
