You're on the court, you put a move on the defender, and you're gone before he even knows you were there. You could've been a ghost you moved so fast. Of course, it takes lots of practice and training to be that good. But it helps to have the right shoe, too.
Today, adidas debuted the Crazy Ghost, a new basketball shoe that features the company's newest performance innovation, the Crazyquick outsole traction system. When you wear the shoe, the Crazyquick system give you maximum control and flexibility to make quick cuts on the court. The shoe is also lighter and more breathable thanks to adidas' redesigned SPRINTWEB, and the bright colors and design elements make it look snappy.
Three NBA players will wear the Crazy Ghost this season — Harrison Barnes of the Golden State Warriors, New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday (that's the the Holiday Pelicans version of the shoe at the top of the page), and the Denver Nuggets' Kenneth Faried. Scroll down to see more images of the shoe (including a cool blue/orange Faried Nuggets colorway), and a shot of Holiday wearing it on the court.
Now that it's the fall, and the weather gets a little unpredictable (warm and sunny one day, freezing rain the next), keeping up with an outdoor exercise routine — especially if you're a runner — can be tough. Reebok's ATV19 makes life easier.
The year 1992 was a very good one for Shaquille O’Neal. Shaq was drafted number-one overall by the Orlando Magic, selected Rookie of the Year and even released his own line of sneakers.
You'd be excused if you thought the shoe above looked a little crazy. If not crazy, you could definitely call the Adidas Springblade different than most any shoe we've seen. In some ways, the shoe has thrown out 30 years of shoe technology to try something completely different. More »

Poor Ray Allen. In a new Kids Foot Locker commercial, the Miami Heat sharpshooter is just trying to ice his knee when, the next thing he knows, Chris Bosh (who thankfully has gotten some new socks) walks in with some kid named Tick Tock who starts taping him to the training table and then steals his name. Perhaps it's revenge for that time Carmelo Anthony dunked on all those kids.
