THE FIRST Round of the 2015 NBA Playoffs are now over and eight teams are left to dispute the championship. Recently, adidas unveiled the Crazylight Boost 2015 in time for the start of the playoffs in the hope that the world’s best players will have the best shoes to carry them in their team’s quest for the gold.
“The comfort and cushioning on this shoe is unlike anything I’ve ever played in,” said NBA All-Star point guard Jeff Teague of the Atlanta Hawks. “After the grind of the season and now the playoffs, I want every advantage to extend the season and I felt that advantage as soon as I laced these up.”
Teague averaged 14.2 points and 7.8 assists in leading the Hawks to a 4-2 win over the Brooklyn Nets in the First Round. They will next face the Washington Wizards starring fellow adidas ambassador John Wall in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
Wall and the Wizards advanced by sweeping the Toronto Raptors and All-Star Kyle Lowry, 4-0. Lowry, another Crazylight endorser, chalked up 12.3 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.8 assists for the Raptors.
The latest Crazylight features Primeknit and Boost technologies. Primeknit ensures comfortable fit, ventilation and support while Boost gives optimum energy return and cushioning.
Another star who donned the Crazylight is Mike Conley of the Memphis Grizzlies who averaged 16.0 points and 3.7 assists before getting sidelined after receiving an elbow to the face and fracturing some bones in Game Three against the Portland Trail Blazers and Damian Lillard. The Grizzlies held on to win the series, 4-1, and hope that their ace guard will be available for their coming Western Conference Semifinal versus the top seed Golden State Warriors.
The shoe is easily one of the lightest in the market weighing in at 12.2 ounces for the low-cut variant and 13.0 ounces for the mid-cut. The lesser weight will help players run faster and not tire easily.
A wide range of colorways are initially available based on the team’s colors with more in the works. These colors are sure to attract attention both on and off the court.
The 2015 Crazylight Boost will be available in the Philippines starting this July. Suggested retail prices are PHP 8,495.00 for the mid-cut and PHP 7,995.00 for the low-cut variants.
