Adidas Crazy BYW 2.0 Review

Pros:
Super comfortable Boost cushioning
Cons:
Slightly cheap materials

Performance of the Adidas Crazy BYW 2.0:

The herringbone traction pattern performs very well on clean courts but the narrow grooves pick up dust easily and need to be wiped now and then. The full-length Boost foam cushioning is partly caged, feels great, and provides an excellent balance of comfort and responsiveness. The mesh materials are thin, flimsy, and feel a little underwhelming for a $160 shoe, but they get the job done performance-wise. The support is good with a wide base, no heel slippage, and torsional rigidity thanks to a plastic shank. Overall, the Adidas BYW 2.0 is a great performer, especially if you are looking for a more responsive Boost cushioning setup.

Flying in under the radar, the BYW 2.0 may be Adidas' top shoe at the moment. Things to watch out for: Adidas' customary size & fit problems, plus a wider toe box with no laces to help clamp down the forefoot.

The performance of the Adidas BYW 2.0 was really good. If you want a comfortable, supportive shoe with a nice cushioning setup and you don't mind the slightly too expensive retail price, then go for it!

For $160, this is not the best shoe in this price range. But if you are a fan of a more responsive Boost cushioning or you can find this shoe on a discount - I would highly recommend it. This is a great performer and one of the best team models Adidas has put on the market in a while.

I really like how the BYW 2.0 plays. It's low to the ground and still has impact protection because of the Boost. It's also well-ventilated and very stable.

The rubber herringbone traction pattern should be pretty good indoors, but the grooves are pretty narrow so be prepared to wipe off dust.

The rubber compound is much harder this time around. The herringbone pattern also performs well on both clean and dusty courts.

The full-length Boost midsole is heavily caged but feels incredible. Reminds me a little of the Harden Vol.3. Checks off everything I want about a cushioning setup.

The full-length Boost cushioning is partly caged and is a really good balance of court feel/responsiveness and impact protection.

There is full-length Boost caged within a Phylon-like material. The Boost is thin at the forefoot and more chunky in the heel. It reminds me of the Marquee Boost.

For a $160 shoe, these are not the materials you want to see. The Mesh upper is thin, soft, and gets the job done, but feels a little cheap in-hand.

The textile and mesh upper with different synthetic/felt overlays is not exactly premium but gets the job done just fine.

I felt laterally contained thanks to the wide and stable base. No issues at all with support and lockdown.

No heel slippage and no side-to-side movements on the footbed. The wide base adds to the stability, and the plastic shank helps with the torsional rigidity.

When laced up, the shoe provides great lateral support because of the plastic cage surrounding the midfoot. It is a bit slippery around the heel area.
