Adidas Crazy BYW X Review

Pros:
Premium materials
Great fit for narrow feet
Cons:
Hefty price tag
Traction is not very durable

Performance of the Adidas Crazy BYW X:

The Adidas Boost You Wear (BYW) X is a modern performance-basketball version of the old Adidas Feet You Wear line. The herringbone traction pattern performs very well out-of-the-box, but starts to fray and pick up dust quickly. Some reviewers didn't like the decoupled feeling of the forefoot and heel: The uncaged Boost cushioning in the heel is very soft and comfortable, but the forefoot is much firmer and responsive because the Boost is completely caged here. Materials are premium and comfortable and support is surprisingly solid. Overall, the opinions on the Adidas BYW X are split, some reviewers feel like they are Adidas' best performance basketball shoes, other feel they are flawed and overpriced.

I think the Crazy BYW X is very good, but the traction definitely could be better.

Overall, the performance of the Adidas BYW X is solid. But the uneven ride and the lacking outsole durability are no-gos considering the hefty price tag.

Traction worked really well on clean courts but you need to wipe from time to time on dusty courts.

Traction was amazing…to start. Unfortunately, the traction got worse with every session and need a lot of wiping now.

The tight traction pattern in the forefoot works well on clean courts but picks up a lot of dust. The rubber in the heel is very soft and started to fray quickly.

Cushioning feels really soft but remains responsive in the forefoot.
 More details
The uncaged Boost in the heel is really bouncy, the caged Boost in the forefoot is more responsive and feels low-to-the-ground.

The fully-caged Boost in the forefoot feels firm, low-to-the-ground, and really responsive. I felt a little unbalanced because the heel sits a lot higher than the forefoot and is a lot softer. Overall, I am not a big fan of this combination.

Comfortable PrimeKnit in the collar, the rest of the upper is made from a dual-layer mesh that looks and feels like a woven material. Overall, the materials are soft, flexible and deliver an old-school style with some new-school flavor.

The heel counter works very well, but I didn't feel securely locked down by the lacing system or the upper material in the front.

The lace pressure in the Primeknit collar area was uncomfortable for my wide feet. I also experienced some dead space in the forefoot.
