It seems Adidas is releasing the Crazy Explosive Primeknit whether you like it or not. Despite a ton of negative feedback on social media for the Andrew Wiggins version, the company is moving full steam ahead. This new adidas Basketball shoe will be releasing in early August.
“When it leaked and when people started putting it on Twitter and going after it, it’s not the way you expect to launch something brand new,” said Jesse Rademacher, adidas Basketball’s design director. The Crazy Explosive is the first project for the brand under his direction. “At the same time, it completely changed the conversation. It made people notice that we were doing something different whether they liked it or not.”
Built specifically for versatile players with dynamic moves, Crazy Explosive is loaded with full-length, industry leading BOOST cushioning. Crazy Explosive will allow players like Wiggins to change the game above the rim, propel slashing drives to the basket and embarrass defenders in the air.
