We were given a sneak peak at the adiZero Crazy Light 2 Basketball shoes by adidas a couple of months back and can now unveil them in greater detail as we begin to break-down some of the kit being worn at this summer's Olympic Games [it's in London don't you know] in our new feature Olympic Kit.
The adiZero Crazy Light 2 is adidas' lightest basketball shoe ever, weighing just 9.50z which is 0.3oz lighter than the original Crazy Light. We're not sure how much 0.3oz is when it comes to making that crucial slam dunk, but we trust in the adidas R&D department and choose to believe that it's the difference between an "Is it the shoes?" and a "He puts up a brick!"
The Crazy Light 2 "directly attaches the new sprintframe platform to the upper, ensuring optimum foot propulsion" and has a unique aerodynamic shape to give athletes maximum speed around the court.
