adidas introduced its game-changing Boost cushioning technology to basketball with the all-new Crazylight Boost and D Rose 5 Boost performance basketball shoes. Boost is an industry-first cushioning technology designed to deliver maximum energy return, responsiveness and comfort to players.
True to adidas’ mission to make athletes better, Boost features innovative material made up of thousands of capsules that help store and release energy efficiently as athletes perform. Boost basketball technology underwent comprehensive testing for over a year with top NCAA and NBA players. All athletes competed through high performance drills and game simulations and gave universally positive feedback, consistently preferring the Boost version of a shoe compared to an EVA alternative.
At 11.6 ounces, the Crazylight Boost remains exceptionally light and every element of the shoe is constructed to maximize the energy benefit of Boost. This includes performance elements such as ShockWeb overlay reinforcement for strength, support and premium style, a soft mesh upper for increased comfort and breathability and an all-new collar design with a unique cut that offers the mobility of a low-top and stability of a mid.
The D Rose 5 Boost is the ultimate signature shoe to outfit Derrick Rose on and off the court. It features adidas’ most innovative technology and personal details ever included on a shoe in the D Rose signature collection. The D Rose 5 Boost offers full shoe length Boost cushioning technology designed for heightened energy return and step-in comfort to ensure maximum performance.
The Crazylight Boost will be available September 1st for $140 while the D Rose 5 Boost will drop October 23rd for $140.
