It’s that time of the week again to take a look back at that player who bought out the best pair of kicks on our Green KOTW.
This week’s winner of Kick Of The Week is ‘The Game Changer’, Avery Bradley and his Adidas AdiZero Crazy Light 2’s.
While most of the focus has been on Bradley’s defense, everyone should take the time to look at his sneaker game too.
Since his highly anticipated return against Memphis, Bradley has bought out Adidas Crazy Lights. The away black/green colourway is an awesome looking shoe. He wore these in the terrific win over the Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
Bradley has worn Adidas since his rookie season in 2010/11, showing great loyalty to the brand so far.
Robbie Fuller, Adidas lead Basketball Footwear Designer explains why the Crazy Light is so great:
“When it came time to make a new adizero Crazy Light 2, we had to make it lighter, stronger and smarter. It was taking on the impossible… Removing weight and adding strength. We knew we couldn’t just make this shoe lighter, it had to be stronger too. That’s why we upgraded the asymmetrical SPRINTFRAME by making it larger. The new design allows for weight reduction, motion control and energy return. The new sidewall design gives far more support to lock down your foot when you’re doing a crossover. And, with the completely redesigned SPRINTWEB, you’ll get both vertical and horizontal strength when you’re cutting to the rim.
.. To sum it all up, it’s lighter, brighter, stronger and smarter. The adizero Crazy Light 2 is light done right.”
Bradley is currently the only player on the Celtics roster sponsored by Adidas. I think more players should wear Adidas, they put out great shoes and the AdiZero Crazy Light’s are exactly what they say they are: crazy light. They weigh only 270 grams!
Who else thinks Avery is on a winner with these kicks?
