The adidas Crazy Light Low is far greater than the higher cut model. However, there are some down sides.
My #1 pet peeve is a dirty court. Not only does it make for a slippery experience… its downright disgusting. If you look closely, you can see that the higher wear areas on the shoe have accumulated the most debris. This did cause some slippage even though the overall traction is very good. A quick wipe and all is well for the time being but consistently wiping is cumbersome.
No traction product can aid you in the fight against a dusty court… well; there is one… the Slipp-Nott traction mat. But with this amount of dust you’d have to step on the mat constantly which is hard to do while in the game.
I have spoken about this before but I will say it one last time, these are meant to be used indoors only. The traction is very thin and short so use outdoors will wear away the surface very quickly.
The highlighted area is where I had experienced some pinching when wearing the Crazy Light and same goes with the low. One thing that increased though is the pain with long periods of usage. Since the materials are a bit sturdier than the high, these have pressed into my toe quite a bit causing some pain. This does go away with a readjustment to the lacing but it will eventually come back later on. While playing for a 4-5 hour stretch, the last 30-45 minutes are pretty painful.
These should be fine for a typical 2 hour regulated game but anything longer than that expect some discomfort.
