MANILA--Sunday is a special day for Titan 22 and Adidas basketball as it marks the release of their Crazy Explosives 2017 PK.
Open to a select group of individuals, the Crazy Explosives were put to the test, boasting full-length boost, sock-like prime knit upper, and Adidas' infinity torsion system.
Focusing on what makes a basketball shoe great, Adidas brought back all the factors that made the 2016 iteration of the shoe awesome while adding in some minor tweaks.
Representatives from the Adidas marketing team summarized the main factors of their ideal basketball sneaker into four words: stability, support, style, and comfort.
The Adidas Crazy Explosives 2017 brings all these design points and created what many believe is best basketball sneaker on the market today.
They mentioned that this shoe is perfect for the Filipino market because it is built around the games of NBA stars such as Andrew Wiggins, Kyle Lowry, and Kristaps Porzingis, all of which play the same style of basketball most Filipinos do.
The common play style in Philippine basketball is slashing and attacking, so our feet rely heavily on shoes that are not only light on the feet but stable on quick stops.
The prime-knit upper, or forged knit, is redesigned with ripples on key areas to give us added stability while providing extreme comfort.
The full-length Boost mid sole is encased in the infinity torsion system and a clear out sole to keep the ideal balance of a basketball shoe.
The Boost provides great impact protection while the out sole and Torsion system give you support on lateral movements.
The 2017 version of the Crazy Explosive PK is nothing short of amazing. Adidas is showing that they have no plans on slowing down, giving the people exactly what they want; more boost and more Prime knit.
This shoe represents the evolution of Adidas basketball, bringing in old tech (their torsion system) and incorporating new innovations (Boost and Prime knit).
If you are a basketball enthusiast who values premium materials and innovative tech, then this is the perfect shoe for you.
The Adidas Crazy Explosive is valued at PHP8,290 and will be available at all Adidas Retailers and Titan22 shops soon
