Created with 360-degree performance from top to bottom, the Crazylight 2016 utilizes a lightweight flexible tightly woven fabric upper with full-length BOOST cushioning crafted for elusive footwork, swerving through traffic in the lane and creating key moments on the court.
The Boost is housed by the tried and tested herringbone-styled traction rubber and a loaded spring plate in the outsole.

My additional thoughts on the Boost set-up that I was not able to point out in the video:
A basketball shoe that provides soft impact absorption is one thing, but having that pillow-like feel in every step of the way with superb responsiveness is another.
That's what I felt while playing in the adidas CrazyLight Boost 2016. Playing ball in these bad boys is like stepping on a pillow while in the heat of the battle on the basketball court.
The Boost set-up for me is just right. A lot of reviewers online point out that the front part of the boost shouldn't be caged, but for me, this set-up is for a greater purpose.
The caged boost in front is meant to help you move better after a cross over or any other lateral movement. If that's uncaged, it will just confuse the front part of your foot as to where it should move after a sharp cut on the court. The the cage pushes the boost back for you to move quicker and sharper.
So again, if you want to experience that pillow-like feel when you do your stuff on the court, you should try this shoe.
Whoever designed this shoe is a keeper. He should be given a long contract as he can command the brand's number 1 cushioning technology for greater use.
The adidas CrazyLight line keeps on improving. Thus, this year's version is a must try kicks for point-guards up to the big men. A true baller will love this for sure.
