Inside The New Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit

Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit

Creating a shoe for the game’s most explosive players is a tough task. Finding ways to improve upon one of last season’s top basketball performance shoes is even more difficult.

The adidas basketball team stepped up to that challenge and crafted the new Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit, which builds upon the impressive debut of its predecessor.

Today’s hoopers are bigger, faster, stronger, and more athletic than ever before, so the Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit introduces additional technology to help the game’s best athletes perform better than ever. Let’s break it down.

Forged Primeknit For Comfort And Support

The Crazy Explosive 2017 introduces Forged Primeknit – a one-piece upper that features areas of unique dimension for the ultimate in structured support and stability in the areas you need it most. Ankle and tongue cushioning offer lightweight comfort, and a sock-like collar allows for a natural range of motion while enhancing on-court support.

Full-Length Boost For Energy Return

Boost cushioning offers complete comfort, while also absorbing energy for added responsiveness on the court. The more energy you give, the more energy you get. And the Crazy Explosive 2017 utilizes full-length Boost to keep you feeling fresh and ready to go from heel to toe.

Top-Tier Traction For True Explosiveness

No athlete can capitalize on their explosive powers if they are slipping and sliding all over the court. Outfitted with a lateral TPU roll cage and power traction, the Crazy Explosive 2017 provides commanding grip for fast footwork, quick cuts, and the electrifying plays that leave your defenders in the dust.

Crazy Explosive 2017 PrimeknitFinal Thoughts

The Crazy Explosive 2017 is built for posterizers, electrifiers, and those who want to harness their explosive abilities on the court. It’s a lightweight shoe that provides the comfort, support, cushioning, and traction to let your athleticism shine.

Top athletes like Andrew Wiggins, Kristaps Porzingis, Eric Gordon, and Justise Winslow will all unleash their explosive abilities in the Crazy Explosive 2017 next season.

The first two colorways of the Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit will be available on 7/27 with more colorways on the way.

There is also a non-Primeknit version of the shoe made for explosive athletes that prefer a mesh upper. The non-Primeknit version also comes in at a lower price point. Be on the lookout for seven new colorways arriving at eastbay.com in early August.

As always, stay locked to Eastbay’s Twitter and Instagram for information on upcoming releases.
