First Look // Kristaps Porzingis’ adidas Crazy Explosive PE For Next Season

words & images // Nick DePaula:

Since signing on with adidas last fall, New York Knicks franchise forward Kristaps Porzingis had been one of a select few headlining the brand’s Crazy Explosive series. He had a trio of Knickerbocker-themed player exclusives of the first silhouette all last season, and as expected, Kristaps will once again be lacing up the newest version of the model later this fall.

In a clean and mean black upper with orange accents throughout, Porzingis’ road sneaker for the 2017-2018 NBA season can be seen below. Along the heel, a simple ‘KP’ font complements the ‘adidas Basketball’ labeling, while each of the outsoles also feature more storytelling. The right shoe has a Statue of Liberty outline, highlighting his current home of New York, while the left shoe incorporates Latvia’s Freedom Monument statue, a nod to his home country. Both monuments feature similar color tones of mint green and gold, which could also make for some interesting future products.

Check out the sneaker below in KP’s exact size 16, shot in Las Vegas at the adidas LVL3 event space, which is open to consumers both today and tomorrow. For more on the new Crazy Explosive 17, check out our in-depth interview with adidas designer Jesse Rademacher.

WNBA Finals MVP Candace Parker’s adidas Crazy Explosive PEs

words & photography // Nick DePaula:

After being curiously left off this summer’s 2016 Women’s Olympic team and later not being named to either of the 1st or 2nd All-WNBA teams, Los Angeles Sparks star Candace Parker was out to prove herself once again as the league’s 20th annual playoffs got underway earlier this fall.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN - OCTOBER 20: Candace Parker #3 and Nneka Ogwumike #30 of the Los Angeles Sparks pose with the WNBA trophy after defeating the Minnesota Lynx in Game Five of the 2016 WNBA Finals on October 20, 2016 at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Parker finished the regular season as the only player in the league to finish in the Top 10 in Points, Rebounds and Assists, and her all-around play continued through each round of the postseason.

An accomplished player that’s individually dominated the NCAA and WNBA since gracing the pages of SLAM as a high school teenage prodigy with ample hype, Candace was still seeking one last accolade all these years later — a WNBA championship.

In one of the closest and most exciting five-game Finals series that the league has seen, Parker’s 28 points and 12 rebounds helped to carry the Sparks to their third championship in franchise history. Vindicated from the summer slights, Candace was named Finals MVP.

The title came just months after the passing of Tennessee coach Pat Summitt, a figure of guidance and inspiration throughout Parker’s life after spending three  years on campus in Knoxville. For much of the postseason, she wore orange hued versions of the new adidas Crazy Explosive sneaker to honor Summitt and her coach’s impact far beyond simply the school’s championship Lady Vols teams.

Throughout her journey to the postseason, Parker was headlining the Crazy Explosive in three custom Sparks-based colorways for both home and away games. Featuring a Primeknit upper and full-length Boost cushioning, each pair is accented in purple and gold, with her custom “ACE3” logo icon stamped atop the tongue tab.

Check out WNBA Finals MVP Candace Parker’s exact size 13.5 adidas Crazy Explosives in three Sparks colorways from the league’s 20th season below, and let us know your favorite version in the comments section.

adidas Crazy Explosive Low // Preview

The adidas Crazy Explosive is one of the more buzzed about basketball shoes coming into this season. Led by Andrew Wiggins and worn by many a player on the Three Stripes roster, the model has just been spotted in low top form. Carrying Primeknit construction, full-length Boost cushioning and translucent sole detail, this low top model has the ability to crossover casually — something we haven’t seen in a while from an adidas Basketball performance model (at least not with this ease).

An all-white makeup makes that all the more obvious, but we wouldn’t sleep on the zebra pair either. Preview both in the photos below and keep it locked to Nice Kicks for release details regarding the adidas Crazy Explosive Low.
