Sneaker Watch // adidas Basketball Recap - 'Twas A Crazy Fast Christmas

words // Brandon Richard

Christmas Day was BIG for adidas Basketball, who celebrated the holiday by issuing BIG Color uniforms to all ten of the participating teams on the NBA schedule. Part of the brand's Winter Court Collection, the uniforms marked 65 years of Christmas Day games with unique monochromatic schemes and solid accents. Along with the uniforms, adidas ballers wore matching sneakers that had previously never been seen on the court.

Instead of having its athletes wear special Christmas-themed shoes, adidas Basketball used the occasion to debut the new Crazy Fast. The upcoming release appears to fall somewhere between the Crazy Shadow and Crazy Light 2, featuring SprintWeb construction, toe and heel overlays, angled stripes and Torsion support. Dwight Howard, Serge Ibaka, Marquis Teague, Kenneth Faried and Matt Barnes each wore tonal colorways with contrasting 3-Stripes to match their BIG color unis.

In Chicago, Derrick Rose's teammates Taj Gibson and Jimmy Butler debuted the upcoming 773 sequel, the 773 Light. The new team model blends elements from previous Rose releases in a lightweight performance package. Gibson and Butler rocked a tonal red colorway with black stripes. Unfortunately, the Bulls lost by about 773 points and dropped a Christmas Day game at home for the first time in franchise history.

In the week leading up to the Christmas Day games, players like Dwight, Josh Smith, Jrue Holiday, John Salmons and Sebastian Telfair laced up kicks from the adidas Basketball "Nightmare" Pack. Smoove and Holiday went with the Top Ten 2000, while Salmons and Telfair opted for the Crazy Light 2. Dwight wore the "Nightmare" colorway of his adipower Howard 3 signature shoe over the weekend, and then did so again against the Denver Nuggets last night before being ejected for a flagrant foul.

Read on for a look at adidas Basketball's special holiday footwear in today's NBA Sneaker Watch.
