It’s easy to say what a shoe supposedly is – talking is easy. Picture, clever words, and good models make many things look great, but it doesn’t beat wearing the real thing, right? Though Sneaker Report has already given you the scoop concerning adidas’ debut of the Crazy Ghost, NBA rising stars Kenneth Faried, Jrue Holiday, and Harrison Barnes decided that they wanted us to see the shoe in action for ourselves.

Making use of a darkly-lit court, Faried (power forward for the Denver Nuggets), Holiday (point guard for the New Orleans Hornets), and Barnes (swingman for the Golden State Warriors) all take turns showing just how nimble, flexible, and impact-protective the Crazy Ghost is, often with dunking. adidas even takes it a step further showing amateur ballers get run in the Crazy Ghost, from both the high school and college levels.

Fortunately, the Crazy Ghost has much to offer players of all levels, one being the Crazyquick outsole. The Crazyquick sole platform actually is more accurately described as an “outsole traction system” that is molded and cut into to mimic the way the foot flexes during action and has deep grooves to allow you turn on a dime. In addition to the weight-reducing and highly-breathable SPRINTWEB upper, the Crazy Ghost is all about high performance play.
