When you think of NBA point guards Ricky Rubio, Mike Conley Jr. and Jrue Holiday, speed has to be one of the first things that come to mind. It makes sense, then, that all three players are repping the lightest basketball shoe to date—the new adizero Crazy Light 3. Weighing just 9.4 ounces and designed for ultimate comfort and performance, the adizero Crazy Light 3 improves upon its predecessor with a lighter, more comfortable upper, improved cushioning and better ankle support.

The new 4-layer SPRINTWEB was engineered with additional foam in key areas to improve comfort and support, and the ankle collar is 16% thicker. A 3D-molded tongue also enhances comfort for the foot. The enlarged asymmetrical SPRINTFRAME allows for maximum motion control, and the radial wave bone traction system features a new and improved multi-level surface for maximum grip and flexibility.

The first of an assortment of Crazy Light 3 colorways features an eye-catching pride blue SPRINTWEB along with contrasting electricity SPRINTFRAME and reflective 3-stripe detailing. You can check out these kicks in action this summer when Rubio, Conley Jr. and Holiday take the adizero Crazy Light 3 to China as part of the adidas Quick vs. Fast tour.

The adizero Crazy Light 3 drops Aug. 1 in ten colorways for $140 at, Foot Locker and Eastbay.
