You’ve seen the ads during the Playoffs (that is if you’ve been following it on NBA Premium TV) and I’m sure you’ve seen the features on other sites. In a couple of days, the lightest shoe ever got even lighter. adidas presents the adiZero Crazy Light 2. Clocking in at 9.5 ounces, the lightest basketball shoe to date. The latest shoe proves to be lighter, stronger and more aerodynamic, coming in brighter colors (the electricity/running white-black you see here is proof enough).
“Elite athletes are elite athletes because they’re always fighting for that competitive edge,” said Lawrence Norman, adidas vice president of global basketball. “The adizero Crazy Light 2 is that competitive edge. The shoe had a huge performance and style impact during college tournaments and we can’t wait for fans to see the adizero Crazy Light 2 in action during the NBA playoffs. When every second of every game matters, this shoe delivers faster play, stronger cuts and greater support.”
“In the league, every game matters and you don’t want anything weighing you down on the court,” said Philadelphia 76ers point guard, Jrue Holiday. “Putting on the adizero Crazy Light 2 gives me that speed and confidence I need when it counts.”
Truth is, you don’t need Jrue, Mario, or any other NBA guard to tell you that the Crazy Light 2 will work for you every time you lace them up. These are great to play in and the improvements from the first one are felt almost immediately.
The adidas adiZeroCrazy Light 2 in stores this Friday, June 15 and will be available in three colorways.
