Editor’s Notes: The successor to the adidas Crazy Explosive basketball sneaker is unveiled with the Crazy Explosive 17.

Reflecting a similar aesthetic compared to its first version, the silhouette dons a new Forged Primeknit construction -- a single-piece upper designed with areas of unique dimension that create structured support and reinforced stability in key target zones. In addition, a sock-like collar paired with ankle and tongue cushioning provides support and lightweight comfort.

All supplemented atop a full-length BOOST midsole that is wrapped with a lateral TPU roll cage for heightened control, the brand’s signature Three Stripes are displayed on the ankle, while "adidas Basketball" stamped on the heel taping solidify its overall details.

Rendered in Crystal White and Solar Yellow for its inaugural colorways, find it at adidas retailers and online worldwide starting July 27, with more dropping throughout the year.

Also, adidas’s iconic BW Army trainer is making a comeback.
