When the Adidas Crazy Boost 2017 first appeared, I know many people were trying their best to pick it just like me. Yes, I think I must like it so much that I even start saving money in order to get it . But now,when I see the official images of Pro Bounce ,I admitted it was quite unacceptable for me because I think it is much worse than Adidas Crazy Boost whether in design or setting.
So what is it actually like? Today we will have a check.
First of all,I’ll talk about the appearance.Well,what I picked was not the black/white but the low-top one. Honestly speaking, the shoe fits my socks so much! Doesn’t it ?
The upper of this sneaker is a PK woven version. Below is a image about Crazy Explosive 2017 PK,you can make some comparison between them.
For the shoe tongue,as you can see,it is designed well. And the heel part is also woven and it wraps well. However,what makes me down is that the TPU equipped in the heel is a bit small,which brings the result that the heel cushion is not enough.
Secondly,it’s about the traction.Well,I dare not say I am a senior basketball player,but as a basketball fan like many of you, I know the traction of a shoe is of great importance.To some extent, a good traction may even add points to your performance.
Here I must mention it that the shoe’s traction is made of raw water crystal.For its shape you can see in the picture below. However,I must admit that I don’t understand the traction design quite well,a bit confused.But even so,during my whole actual combat, I knew I’ve got the right one which helped me greatly.It just gripped the court tightly when I needed it did so.And with it,I can change my movements with ease. But I think I need to suggest you that you had better not play in it on dusty courts.
Next,I will talk about the cushion. For this setup,the shoe has equipped with a big Bounce.When I see the Crazy Explosive 2017 PK’s cushion,of course,I will definitely make a comparison between them because the most concerned part is the cushioning. As I’ve said,there is a big Bounce (its cost is low) placed in the shoe ,which results in the low price of this Pro Bounce.
But even the cost is low, I would tell you the shoe’s cushion is pretty excellent and it even makes me think of the Dame 3 which is as excellent as Pro Bounce. Based on my experience,I am quite satisfied with the setup for I can feel its elasticity and it is super enjoyable.
Then it’s time to tell you some about wrapping. There are some fillers in the shoe which is used to make up of the defect that the TPU brought. In daily wearing you can feel that your foot are wrapped well.
Finally,I’d like to talk about the support. Before formal introduction, I’d like to talk about the use of TPU. Firstly, it offers support for its wearer. Secondly, it helps improve stability and prevent some injuries. So,how well can the shoe perform in this aspect? Sadly,I must tell you its performance is quite disappointing. Therefore,if you can’t accept this you’d better consider again and again.
Objectively speaking, its cushion and grip are super good. So,if you’ve decided to make it be your next target of purchase then you’d better grab it as soon as possible.But,if you can’t accept its shortcomings then I suggest you choose a high-top and engineering mesh one.In short,I think I’ve got my favorite one,so happy!
