Today, adidas unveils its Crazyquick performance footwear line, the latest innovation designed specifically to help make athletes quicker. The lineup includes basketball, football, running and training footwear that gives athletes great controlled flexibility, better traction and optimal lockdown.
Washington Wizards point guard John Wall debuted the Crazyquick basketball shoe this past Wednesday. The new model features four quick zones in the outsole that work with the shoe's upper to provide maximum traction and flexibility for quick on-court movements. Flexibility and direction of the herringbone traction and 17 diverging pods play specific roles in making players quicker.
“Quick is what separates me from other players in the league,” said Wall. “Quick is what gets me around defenders to get an open lane to the basket. In a league of fast guards, being quick is what makes my game unique.”
Crazyquick basketball will be available Wednesday, May 1 on adidas.com and retailers nationwide for $140.
