InsideHoops got a pair of great new shoes from adidas that we love: the adizero Crazy Light 2 basketball sneakers. They came out back in late April. Ours are a very cool shade of gray that you can see below.

“The adizero Crazy Light 2 is light done right,” said the shoe’s designer, Robbie Fuller, adidas advanced footwear concept designer. “We not only made it lighter, but we made it stronger and more aerodynamic. We work closely with the adidas Innovation Team (aIT) to continuously innovate and find that perfect weight-to-strength ratio that gives athletes better command and agility on court.”

“Elite athletes are elite athletes because they’re always fighting for that competitive edge,” said Lawrence Norman, adidas vice president of global basketball. “The adizero Crazy Light 2 is that competitive edge. The shoe had a huge performance and style impact during college tournaments and we can’t wait for fans to see the adizero Crazy Light 2 in action during the NBA playoffs. When every second of every game matters, this shoe delivers faster play, stronger cuts and greater support.”

The shoes are beautiful, insanely light, and slick. We at InsideHoops approve. Check them out:,0&resMode=sharp2&op_usm=1.1,0.5,1,0
