The NBA finals were reliably interrupted with commercials of Derrick Rose peddling his adiZero “crazy” light basketball shoes as the lightest basketball shoe ever. The Adidas adiZero 5-Star cleat ($100) have the similar bragging rights in the world of football. Their uppers are made from a single-layer of proprietary Sprintskin synthetic, which supposedly provides similar levels of support to good ole’ leather, minus the weight. On the traction side, the shoes bluntly named Traxion studs are designed to improve directional changes on both turf and natural surfaces. Will these cleats thwart Patrick Willis from owning you or any other player past the line of scrimmage? Survey says no.
