World's Lightest Basketball Shoe by ADIDAS.



Weighing in at only 9.8 ounces and a body thickness of 1mm, the adiZero Crazy Light is Adidas's latest basketball shoe.It will be available June 3rd in four different color options: Blue&White, Black&Red, Grey&Neon and Green&Red....
The launch of the Crazy Light comes on the heels, so to speak, of two recent additions to the adiZero line: the 6.9-ounce 5-Star football cleat and the 5.8-ounce F50 soccer cleat, each of which is considered the lightest in its sport. Now, the Crazy Light takes claims that prize for basketball.
The innovation team studied video of basketball movements to look for areas where weight could be placed and other areas where it could be saved. The goal was to provide an upper with multidirectional support, because basketball players constantly make linear and lateral movements. “Some of the challenges you might not have to consider in a conventional upper, you have to take into consideration” with a lighter shoe, Davis said.
The adiZero Crazy Light will retail for $130USD... are you getting it?
