Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Overall fit is amazing, according to most. There are no empty spaces in the shoe.
These shoes come in 11 fashion-forward colors that match almost any team jersey. The lacing system has been updated to reduce pressure on laces and eliminate breakage.
Again, exactly the same outsole so as the performance. You should be completely covered on whatever court you‘re playing – grip all day babe.
The Adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 features Full-Length Boost just like the year before. Like we have previously mentioned, even if there is a cage, the Boost’s benefits can be fully felt.

What reviewers didn't like

A good number of buyers find the shoes a little stiff and hard to put on.
With this narrow construction and stiff Fused Mesh upper, your foot just simply don‘t have any other choice to just stay in one place.
Once again, the outsole of the Crazy Explosive 2017 is not durable and will not be recommended for outdoors at all.
