  1. wtf..they look just like the 2s..i knew eventually adidas will run out of designs…

    1. Lol.The hyperdunk 2013 infact are the hyperdunk 2012 but with some improvements. The same case is here.

  2. I had a pair of crazylight 2, and that pair of plastic shit hurt the shit outa my feet. Never ever buying adidas again. I mean, to be honest, I like the innovation, but they need to make sure that the products they put on the market are complete stuff. Comparing to nike, adidas shoes always feel like half-ass project. I used to love adidas when T-Mac was the shit back in the days, now its all nike.

    1. I don’t really like the looks of a lot of these new Adidas shoes. I was actually looking at some older Adidas shoes from around the FYW time last night and I like aesthetics of those a lot more.

      What do you guys think of that era of shoes from Adidas? I missed out on those shoes as I wasn’t playing ball around that time at all. Were those FYW shoes good performance wise?

      1. i love my top ten 2000s and my real deals, granted they are retros, and lots of people complain that they aren’t anywhere close to the originals, but they feel great for what they are (the first adidas shoe that i remember wearing was the kobes, so i wasn’t on the wagon yet when the originals were out…)
        i’ve been looking for a pair of crazy 8s for the longest time now, in my honest opinion they are among the top 5 basketball sneakers of all time, design-wise, maybe even top 3. the top ten 2000 has to be up there, too, so i’d say that you are absolutely right.

        1. Hi Tadatsune, What kind of tech did the Kobe’s have? Was it his signature model with Adidas that you used to own?

          I wasn’t playing Basketball at all when a lot of these Adidas FYW shoes came out. Looking at some of them now though, man, I think I missed out on some really cool looking shoes.

          I have also read where people have said that the originals were much better. What did they have to change in these retros that made the originals better?

          I think I will get a pair of Adidas Top Ten 2000s. I was looking to get a pair anyway, but now that you have said that you really like them, I think that is enough to sway me to get a pair. How would you compare them to the Real Deals? Might even get a pair of those too. Would both of these be OK for outdoor Bball?

          1. i was talking about these ones, man, i’m sure you’ve seen them before….they’re actually one of my favorite sneakers of all time, i had my best ever high school season playing in these and the flightposite ones

          2. yeah, both the real deals and the top ten 2000s are great for outdoor basketball, the grooves are really deep and the traction is unreal…the only problem of course, is that there isn’t a hell of a lot in the way of arch support and the ventilation is pretty much non-existent, so you might want to factor that into your decision if you’re playing in hot climes, especially if you sweat a lot (as i do). make sure you try them on in the store first, too, so you get the right size…i had to go a full size down to get the kind of fit that i wanted (keeping in mind that the upper will, like retros tend to do, loosen up as they break in). you might want to go anywhere between 1/2-1 size down.

            the modified FYW system (as you may know the patent to the FYW tech went with the guy who invented it when him and adidas fell out) feels unbelievable once you get used to the pods, i would say that the court feel that you get with the sneaker is up there with anything that is out there right now…though i haven’t tried the crazyquicks yet.

          3. btw i wouldn’t go anywhere near these new adidas shoes, they just look so cheap and gimmicky, i see kids with them on the courts all the time and most of the time they’re on the way to falling apart, the material frays, tears and peels off, the whole ‘lightest shoe in the world’ gimmick just seems incredibly dumb to me. i avoided the whole rose line for that reason, that is, until the rose 3, which i do like quite a lot.

  3. More like Crazy Light 2.5…
    Upper is virtually identical (hopefully less restrictive at the throat) and the traction is seemingly a reused pattern from the other team shoes…

  4. These look like they will be more comfortable than the number 2’s, looks like there is some kind of lining inside.

  5. I’m fresh off the Crazy Quicks purchase back at the beginning of May. I’m not prepared to entertain any other Adidas purchases until Boost comes to Basketball.

  6. They are not so bad!They have many common characteristics with their predecessor but i still believe that they will perform better!Too bad though that they don’t come up with Boost technology!

  7. These look like lighter misterflys just by looking at the toe. For sure these will retail around $180-190 in my country.

  8. I thought the Crazyquick would replace these as the main team shoes. Like the Hyperdunks.

  9. I hate that damn sprint frame. Add in the super narrow fit and these are just not for me.
