As one of just two adidas athletes representing for the brand on this year’s Olympics stage, Toronto Raptors All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry has been the leading face of the new Crazylight Boost 2016 during the Summer Games.
Similar to the “USA” version released last month, you can’t fault adidas for planning the launch under the impression that James Harden would be playing in the Olympics. Lowry’s version instead features his “KL” logo along each tongue, as well as “USA” along the heel and insole. There’s also a hidden “Kart” and “Kam” wordmark under the tongues, honoring his children.
With a white woven jacquard upper, navy TPU support wedge and full-length Boost cushioning all atop a screeching Continental rubber outsole traction pattern, it’s already become one of adidas’ most beloved playing shoes.
Check out Kyle Lowry’s exact size 13 “USA” pair of the the adidas Crazylight Boost 2016 below. Stay tuned tomorrow for an exclusive look at Lowry’s away PE.
