Really, it’s very crazy.

The 2011 NBA Playoffs began Saturday, bringing with it plenty of shoe debuts. Namely, the official multi-player unveiling of the adidas adiZero Crazy Light and LeBron James’ Nike LeBron 8 PS. The new Crazy Light was seen in four colorways on five players: Derrick Rose got things going by unleashing a Black/White/Red look, Darren Collison went Black/White/Yellow, Jrue Holiday and Hedo Turkoglu laced up the already iconic Sharp Blue/White colorway, and Josh Smith opted for Black/White.

Rose made the Crazy Light‘s debut shine, putting up 39 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists, 1 steal and 3 blocks to help Chicago rally past Indiana, 104-99. Collison steered the Pacers with 17, 6, 9, 2 and 1, Holiday recorded 19, 5, 5 and 3, Turkoglu 6, 4, 5, 1 and 1, and J-Smoove 15, 8, 2 and 2.

LeBron notched 21, 14, 5, 1 and 3 in his White/Red LeBron PS to nudge Miami to a 97-89 win over Philly. Other sneaker highlights included Gilbert in Cool Grey Air Jordan 11‘s, Joe Johnson playing in Jordan Play In These F, Gerald Wallace not wearing Playoffs to start the playoffs, and Shawn Marion in the Nike Air Shox Hyperballer/Air Hypershox /Shox Air Hyperballer.

Crazy Lights look sick on court, but adi has to get D-rose some non 3-stripe ankle braces.

any shoe d-rose wears warrants coverage, or rather WILL warrant coverage. still, the crazy-light is a completely post-hyperfuse product.

Non-sense, a shoe completely build up out of conventional products, and a heat-press(like the Hyperfuse is), is nothing like the lightest basketball shoe ever.

Hyperfuse is a conventional shoe(build up out of conventional materials, with a conventional weight), with a no-sew contruction(which has been done a lot in running, and it isn’t actual technology….any brand is allowed to do it, because it’s been around since the heat-press was introduced, so no brand can claim it legally).

A Nylon/Mesh body, that breaks the 10oz barrier is something completely different, it’s stupid to compare shoes just because they use a similar look, if they’re THIS different.

i’m not implying that there should be no coverage of the crazy light, but over half of these pictures were of the SAME shoe. after two or three, i got the idea. after fifteen, i didn’t care.
