Andrew Wiggins x adidas Crazylight Boost 2.5 PE trio honor mom, Minnesota, Canada

adidas Crazylight 2.5 Wiggins - Group

Andrew Wiggins, the star swingman of the NBA’s Minnesota Timberwolves is dazzling as he ascends to new heights with his talent, but he is a product of three major influences that are actively present in his life — his mother, his new home state, and his home away from home. To shed light on his journey, he has been honored with the Andrew Wiggins x adidas Crazylight Boost 2.5 PE Trio Pack in “Marita”, “North Star”, and “Home Away From Home” editions.

adidas unveils three new Andrew Wiggins PEs for the Crazylight Boost 2.5. Each colorway features unique design elements inspired by Wiggins’ family history and on-court play with the Minnesota Timberwolves.


The “Marita” is Wiggins’ first silhouette dedicated to his mother, Marita Payne-Wiggins, and her success as an Olympic sprinter who helped Canada win two silver medals in the 4×100 and 4×400-meter relays in the 1984 Summer Games. They feature a silver to red gradient upper, blending Primeknit threads with forefoot mesh to deliver added breathability on the hardwood. Silver accents along the midsole, heel cap, collar lining and laces are paired with a red and white outsole for a true Canadian tribute. Gold hits to the upper’s foil treated seam and AW logo cap off the hometown exclusive.

North Star

Calling on Minnesota’s state motto – L’Etoile du Nord or The Star of the North – Wiggins’ “North Star” PE is constructed with a metallic heel counter and silver detailing. Designed in team colors, the shoe features a black and blue Primeknit upper with seamless integration of mesh tooling and deep blue accents throughout.

Home Away From Home

Designed in tribute to Wiggins’ journey from Canada to the NBA, adidas unveils the “Home Away From Home” edition of the Crazylight Boost 2.5. The shoe displays cascading maple leaves from the midsole to a clear outsole with green and blue accents as a nod to Wiggins’ Canadian roots and time in Minnesota. White and gray Primeknit threads are paired with dark blue mesh details, while the heel cap features a silver-blue fade treated with a chrome finish.

“Marita” dropped January 1 while the “North Star” and “Home Away From Home” deliver February for $125.
