After going “Quick” for a minute, adidas is now shifting back to the “Light” side of things with the adidas Crazy Light 3. The shoe keeps the same fast, angular upper as its predecessor while letting the geometry of the panels breathe just a little bit more. The shoes are still oozing with adidas’ various technology, from the Sprintframe upper shell to the miadidas integration revealed by the logo on the outsole. Like the adidas Crazy Light 2, this latest third model makes use of a number of ventilated panels on the upper, which plays a major role in weight reduction to create an even more lighter package. The three-stripes logos are again anchored at the heels and the straight angular cut of the ankle remains, which, quite frankly, makes the Crazy Light 3 a bit too similar in design to the CL2. Is the adidas Crazy Light 3 a worthy successor to the popular Crazy Light line, or is the design evolution moving a bit too slow? Continue reading for a first look at the adidas Crazy Light 3 and keep it locked on Sneaker News to get the official imagery of this Summer/Fall release as soon as it’s available.
these look to much like nikes. they have a hyper-fuse going on like nike, they ever copy the mesh under the hyper-fuse mesh they copied. to me, they not original reminds me to much of nike basketball shoes. adidas need some better designers because they are lacking originality
Adidas is terrible at being creative. Crazy light, crazy quick, stupidly light, etc. are all the same thing basically and they all look the same. Other than D. Rose's kicks they really don't try to me a decent basketball shoe. No one wears Dwight's shoes & Josh Smith isn't notable enough to sell his shoes.
@ayochaser Man, Adidas ball gear is off the chain what are you even talking about homie? Thats the shit with people like you. If these were lebrons you'd be on it right? SMH Adidas is really basketball focused IMO.
Adidas has decent gear. I love their new shorts with the print on them. He has a point, though, they dont have enough of a contrast between the models. In comparison to Nike, they don't compete in variety and complexity in design. Adidas makes nice shoes, but all their team models look VERY similar.
I really wouldn't, not a huge fan of lebrons but at least nike switches his up pretty regularly. His kicks don't look like hyperdunks & hyperfuses at the same time. Honestly I'm a fan of Adidas but they are about as creative as team Jordan's when it comes to new designs. I'll give you that they are trying to be more basketball oriented but all of their kicks look pretty similar, use the same tech, and are supposed to make you crazy light, crazy quick, etc. when they're barely lighter than hyperdunks, or Kobes.
