What: Adidas Crazy 1 Basketball Shoe
When: Dec. 26
How much: $125
The Scoop: Originally bred in 2000 as a stylish court sneaker, this modern version is modeled after German sports cars, noticeable in the curved, aerodynamic upper, which features a matte finish, indicative of lux paint on upscale cars. The heel and toe include molding suggestive of a car’s grill and lights. The exaggerated arch represents the shape of a car’s wheel well.
Design aside, the Crazy 1 isn’t without performance features, like a double foam collar for ankle support and protection and a torsion system to stabilize the foot during sharp changes of direction.
