Any idea if the crazy boosts from last season will be available in PE colors? I only see the Andrew Wiggins editions on ebay

That high outrigger is one of the reasons I'm really having high hopes for these. I hate when my forefoot rolls over the midsole like in KDs

retailing for a price tag of $150, look for the new adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit in white at select adidas stores and online on July 27
post #3521 of 3570

created a pair of crazy explosives at adidas.com miadidas and they charged me $6.56 tax. i previously ordered a pair of crazy explosives (non-custom) and was not charged tax. i live in MA and this state does not tax shoe sales.

 

wrote to customer service and they told me i don't have a tax exempt status which was them just brushing it off. i called customer service and they told me they had no idea why maybe the tax law changed, which it didn't....has anyone else had a problem with adidas charging tax when they shouldn't have? 

 

in work for a shoe company and know cleats  are taxed but not hoop shoes.

post #3522 of 3570
Why would cleats have tax but not hoop shoes?
post #3523 of 3570


cleats are considered "equipment" not shoes

post #3524 of 3570
Ah. I did a quick google search and it looks like the exemption for shoes has a $175 threshold and there's tax above that. How much did they cost?
post #3525 of 3570


yeah, i saw that too. the miadidas are listed at $150 but i used the F&F 30% off so it came in at $105 before tax...i asked them to open up a case item and get back to me. i also emailed them the MA website that has the $175 threshold. we'll see what they finally came back with

So about the CLB 2016

I went half size down and the length was fine but the forefoot was super narrow even after breaking in.

And my lateral forefoot / pinky would pinch against the side. Gets painful after a night's play.

 

Few days ago I removed the ortholight insole (it was glued down but quite removable after some heat)

 

Played in them for 2 nights, the fit is so much better now without the insoles because there's more toe room.

I will test it out more, but my lateral side and pinky definitely aren't in as much pain after playing now.

what about wearing thicker socks?

Wouldn't that give my lateral side even less toe space, hence even more pinching?

i figure it would cushion your foot from thein pinching.

i had the same problem and thicker socks won't help (too tight). had to sell off my clb2016 cos it was impossible to ball in them... damn if i knew removing the insole would help with the problem i wld have tried it...

RE: CLB 2016

 

I also swapped the stock laces out for 8mm flat laces

They bite so hard when I tie them up

Makes for some insane lockdown

 

So here's the things I've done to them:

- CLB 2016 non-PK, Half size down

- Lacing reversed on the top 2 eyelets

- Swapped laces to 8mm flat laces

- Removed ortholite insole

 

Don't think anything in my rotation comes close now, not even my Kobe 9s.

Maybe if I get my hands on a pair of full length zoom midsoles...

never thought about removing the insole, but that is an alternative...i'm just curious if that will make it uncomfortable for the bottom of you feet?  CLB16 was primeknit, but i think it sucked, more so than Rose5 :/

The insole does provide more comfort, but they're okay even without.

It's like how some boost shoes (I think Pure Boost and NMDs?) don't come with an insole, only boost midsole and a strobel board that doubles as the insole.

 

I have the Jacquard CLB 2016, not the PK ones. Let me add that to the other post.

Wish adidas would just release the CEs this weekend...
