For anyone who has ever played in a lightweight basketball shoe, you know how much difference it makes in your game. Good news – the adidas Crazy Light 2, which releases on Thursday May 24, is the lightest basketball shoe ever made. At 9.5 ounces the second edition of the Crazy Light is even lighter than the first as adidas continues to push lightweight technology at the forefront of their basketball designs. From the soles, to the heel, to the laces – every dimension of this shoe has been explored for opportunities to make it lighter. The Crazy Light 2 will drop in five colorways on Thursday: black/red, grey, scarlet, electricity, and black/green. All of the adidas Crazy Light 2 releases will be in stores on Thursday, May 24 for $140. You can preorder on Footlocker.com here.
