New Colorways of the Adidas Crazylight 2016

Adidas is set to finally drop its latest in the Crazylight line. We have not seen news of more than a few colorways here and there. Still, this is a flagship basketball sneaker for Adidas. It is also taking on its most advanced technical iteration, so some variety is to be expected in the future. Pictured above are two of the more recent colorways of the Adidas Crazylight 2016.

One of the iterations sports a wild color pairing. Though a bit out there, it’s a familiar aesthetic. Adidas has gone with the Green and Violet scheme before. Most recently, that motif was present on the All Star Boost editions of some of its signature models, including the D Rose 6.

The second colorway here is actually a PE. This version is what James Harden would have been wearing had he decided to play in this summer’s olympics. As such, this edition sports a mix of Navy Blue, Red, and White. Both of these colorways will feature the same technical aspects that have made this a hotly anticipated drop.

The Adidas Crazylight 2016 sports a Primeknit upper sitting on top of a full length Boost midsole. The outsole is made up of durable Continental rubber. Look for these colorways to drop some time this month, as Adidas officially rolls out the Crazylight 2016.

Author’s Take

This sneaker is going to be an absolute beast on the court. The Adidas Crazylight 2016 ticks the most important boxes when considering a performance basketball sneaker. We get a Primeknit upper, full length Boost, and traction that looks like it will perform just as well outdoors as indoors.

The outsole is one of the more interesting parts of this shoe. It takes on a Continental rubber construction, the same material used to make tires. Consequently, I’m expecting exceptionally effective traction.

I might have to stock up on these the minute they drop.
