RF: I purposely carried on the three stripes on adidas samba the ankle, because the fastest things are on the back, and also by freezing them in that spot, it gives it the identity just look at the Stan Smith and once you see the perforated stripes, you know instantly that it's a Stan Smith. I feel with the the Crazy Light, it's so iconic and once its there, its there, so I can stop focusing on that and start focusing on innovation and improvements in other areas.Elysia Davis: The Crazy Light 2 started with a review of the Crazy Light 1. We wanted to get a hold of what we achieved and what we wanted to improved.
ED: With all the learning we did with the Crazy Light 1, the first round of samples of the Crazy Light 2 were awesome! A lot of the revising with the Crazy Light 2 was with adidas originals eqt the materials, testing five different lining combinations, and once that was done, we got a design review. All of that feedback, including marketing and athlete feedback, went to Robbie who did a re-design, and that shoe went through the same exact testing we did with the first sample.
ED: Yes, definitely. So nmd adidas one of the things was to change up the rubber we actually have a thicker outsole around the perimeter which is a high-wear zone, and we also reduced the weight in the middle, and that resulted in a bit more abrasion-resistance and overall a more durable shoe that will allow you to play indoor and outdoor. Also, one of the big inspirations of Robbie was this idea of aerodynamic design and one of the results was reducing the seams. If you look at the forefoot, there really are no seams, so it's almost piece up until the medial panel, so you adidas pure boost have a smooth, more finessed finish. That was an unexpected revision that really enhanced the product.
ED: Our team has a really solid understanding of basketball bio-mechanics and again, just going back to those 15 tests we put any shoe through they're pretty rigorous because that's what comes from adidas, with our roots being in performance footwear. As long as we're pushing the boundaries of "lightweight" and never forgetting and never compromising what it means to be a basketball shoe and what it requires, we can still go light. There's a lot shoes that go light in a very arbitrary way, but we try to do it in a very intelligent way, and we're still finding ways to make shoes lighter, which comes from not only material innovation, but construction innovation. We're not there yet!
