Shout out Ryan Duke and the good people over at Crossover Culture for hooking it up, definitely needed a casual shoe and with that said these definitely aren’t your typical casual shoe, let’s take a look at em.
The Crafted Drip features a stretchy knit upper that I feel can go toe to toe with models such as the Adidas Ultraboost. This knit is seriously no joke, the feel of the knit on foot is nothing short of amazing, from the moment you slide your foot in these, you know the knit is something special. Upper is very simple, yet effective, a recurring them with this shoe, simplicity FTW. The knit and strap work really well in creating a nice and secure fit, I recommend staying true to size or going half a size down with these, the minimalistic upper might create a looser fitting shoe for some, I personally got half a size up and they still locked my foot down and there was no slipping around inside the shoe.
The outsole features a blade traction pattern that should be good to go whatever journey you find these shoes taking you on. Additionally there are added flex grooves to provide flexibility of the sole to make sure the shoe moves with your foot. Crossover culture is wrapping the package up here with CMEVA cushioning that provides you with all day comfort and a nice leather heel logo that gives it a luxurious look.
Thats that for the Crafted Drips, nice minimalistic shoe that’s meant for chilling in and going out whenever you aren’t hooping. Writing this article up as I prep my feet to wear these out for the first time. What are your thoughts on these? I like that a new brand already has on court and off court models to select from. Only thing I am worried about is durability of the knit upper, hope it lasts a while because I’m going to put these through a lot.
