One of the most impressive technologies from adidas as of late is their new cushioning system, adidas Boost. Personally, I absolutely love the way Boost feels under the foot allowing a very responsive feel without being too mushy. If you aren’t familiar with Boost, here is a quick run down via adidas NEWS STREAM.
BOOST™ combines performance benefits that have been contradictory in the past: soft cushioning and responsiveness work together at last to give runners a running experience unlike any other. “
adidas introduces Boost cushioning into the next D Rose 5.0 and the latest Crazy Light Boost 4. Significant changes have been made to the next-gen Crazy Light starting with a heavier weight at 11.2 ounces, two more ounces heavier than the previous model. Boost cushioning is encased in the heel allowing for a additional energy return and bounce. This is disappointing given that players are on their toes while hooping, including me. A new 4-layer SPRINTWEB upper offering lightweight yet strong support with no sew construction. TechFit can be found on the tongue with no visible ventilation. The old SPRINTFRAME is now called STABLEFRAME that runs from the heel to the forefoot providing exceptional stability and rigidity needed for quick moves and fast-breaks. The outsole looks to be aggressive as with most Crazy Light models and I see no concern here.
The colorway pictured above is for Damian Lillard of the Portland Trailblazers. It is reported that he may get a signature shoe very soon, but before that can happen, he’ll have to strap up these Crazy Light Boosts for the new season.
Expect the adidas Crazy Light 4 Boost to drop this October, in time for the new season. No exact release date or pricing info yet so make sure to keep it locked here for the latest info.
