Adidas Basketball lifts off with the second iteration of Crazy Explosive.
Creating confidence to rise above the opposition with the comfort to land from any height.
One goal: Help athletes make a difference on the court by creating the greatest basketball shoe ever.
PLAY ABOVE THE REST
Crazy Explosive 17 introduces Forged Primeknit – a single-piece upper designed with areas of unique dimension that create structured support and reinforced stability in key target zones. Paired with ankle and tongue cushioning for lightweight comfort, a sock-like collar ensures natural movement and enhances on-court support. The latest model is lifted on full-length BOOST and wrapped with a lateral TPU roll cage, harnessing its added energy return for heightened control when taking off to the basket. Power traction delivers commanding grip designed for light footwork and explosive gameplay.
GET UP & SHOW OUT
Designed to posterize on the court, Crazy Explosive 17’s Forged Primeknit execution creates an elevated wave pattern across the upper for a bold aesthetic that maintains lightweight durability. The brand’s three stripes are displayed on the ankle, while ‘ADIDAS BASKETBALL’ is stamped on the heel taping.
Crazy Explosive 17 in Solar Yellow and Crystal White Primeknit colorways launch on July 26 for P7295 and P8295 respectively with additional drops throughout the year.
