Adidas is about to make another HUGE explosion in the sneaker game with the completely fresh Crazy Explosive Primeknit 2017.
Last year‘s model was by far the best, most beastly performer for me. But now adidas took even a step further by introducing the new Primeknit upper with a sock like collar & slicker, more aggressive shiluatte.
Men and women, boys and girls sit back and take your popcorns cuz it’s getting to go down.

GREAT JUST GOT EVEN GREATER
The Crazy Explosive Primeknit 2017 features the brand new forged Primeknit upper which is more supportive &
durable than any other Primeknit upper. As you can see, thorough the whole upper there’re these TPU waves that reinforce the whole Primeknit bootie without compromising comfort and sctrechibility by a lot.
The 2016 version had that pure Primeknit upper and it was amazing to see this on a basketball shoe. But the main problem that the Crazy explosive 2016 had was lack of support and stability. Adidas payed attention to this and made probably the most well-balanced Primeknit upper exactly for basketball.
The upper is now a tad bit stiffer because of this TPU yarn, but I didn‘t notice any big of a deal. It still keeps the comfort level & stretchiness on a highest level by adding much needed support. PERFECTO.
THE SAME EXACT SETUP
Going from the upper down, we have almost the same midsole and outsole tooling and that’s perfect since I really can’t imagine what else they could do to make them even better. This is a perfect time to say – If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
The thickest BOOST midsole offers unbelievable amount of bounciness for that pillow like ride. This is by far the best cushion setup for those who love comfort, bounce and tons of impact protection. It just incredible… I love this setup to death.
Now the outer side of BOOST cushioning is covered with rubbery cage to improve stability and receive direct energy straight to your foot. While the inner side of the BOOST midsole is completely open to receive that full potential of the BOOST power.
On top of that, if you’re a guard who prefers very responsive ride, don’t worry they got you covered as well.
BEASTLY AS THE LAST YEAR’S MODEL
Listen, if you want grip the floor like crazy and I know you do, then god damn grab these… I have one word to describe this traction – straight out GLUE.
Clean courts, dirty courts, those 24 hour courts, it doesn’t matter. They will bite the hardwood any day of the week. Wiping? Pff, you don’t even need to think about it.
However, the rubber compound is pretty soft and that means that I don’t recommend using them outdoors.
SUPPORTIVE & ADAPTIVE
The forged Primeknit upper gets solid improvement in the support department. Of course, you’re giving away some softness & stretchiness, but as I said, it isn’t a deal breaker and I would take more support any day of the week since I didn’t feel any HUGE differences in terms of overall comfort.
The sock-like ankle collar trend has reached this year’s Primeknit version as well and that’s awesome. It feels like you’re wearing an actual sock – tight, breathable & adaptive fit. Primeknit in this area does not feature those ridges, so you’re getting pure Primeknit experience without any problems putting them on.
The Crazy Explosive 2017 fits exactly the same as the last year’s model. They look quite wide and bulky, but they don’t fit like that. So, narrow footers as well as wide footer should go up ½ size since they run narrow in the midfoot area.
GETS A NICE IMPROVEMENT
Once again, the new forget Primeknit upper impressed me a lot by making this shoe without any weak spots at all. I’m telling you, they’re perfect. It makes sure that you’re having plenty of foot containment while making hard moves, but still manages to keep Primeknit main properties on its best. GOLDEN SPOT.
On top of that, regarding a higher shoe’s profile adidas decided to implement two eyelets for even more beastly support and foot lockdown. Your foot is going anywhere.
Other than that, the main support core remained the same. We have an internal heel counter, torsional support, BOOST cage and a pretty wide base. Yeah, the list is impressive.
I’m felt in love with these… Looking from my perspective, the adidas Crazy Explosive Primeknit 2017 will be the best performer in 2017, hands down. Yes, it’s early to say anything because we have 4 months ahead, but I believe that any other upcoming sneaker is not going to uncrown this king soon.
I would HIGHLY recommend these for any type of player due to impressive arsenal of tech & abilities that they can offer for each position. Flashy, quick guards? No problem. Super responsive BOOST cushion, killer traction, solid foot containment will let you to do anything on court with confidence & efficiency. Maybe you’re a strong, big guy who dominates the post? Not a problem as well. Enormous amount of impact protection & bouncy ride will let you to snatch opponents shots and get back on the ground soft and easy, like putting your head on a pillow at night.
