adidas is beginning to reap the benefits of signing young stars. This year, they were on target and signed Andrew Wiggins to a multi-year endorsement deal. He began as the top pick and finished in the same area. Wiggins was able to steer away from injuries and started all 82 games. In over 36 minutes of work, Wiggins put in 16.9 points and 4.6 rebounds per game. The first season in Minnesota came with a lot of losses but as he gains more experience, that’ll change.

adidas has created a design on the Crazylight Boost 2015 paying homage to Wiggins’ roots. Maple leaves, high school, Kansas University, and the Timberwolves are combined to create a wild upper. The Crazylight Boost features two of adidas’ top technology, Primeknit and Boost.
Inspired by his path from the North to the NBA, the shoe features repeating maple leaves to pay homage to his home country, Canada, and combines the colors of his high school, the Kansas Jayhawks and the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The Crazylight Boost 2015 made its on-court debut with Andrew during the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge during NBA All-Star Weekend. It’s the first basketball shoe to feature Primeknit technology and coupled with industry leading Boost cushioning, it’s adidas’ most innovate basketball shoe to date.
The Crazylight Boost 2015 is available in limited quantities now at adidas.com and May 1 at Foot Locker in the Mall of America (Minneapolis), Footlocker.com and Eastbay.
