Kobe Bryant's journey with adidas encapsulates a significant chapter in sneaker history. While many enthusiasts today may associate Kobe with Nike's line-up, his early partnership with adidas produced some memorable kicks. Reminiscent of this iconic era, adidas brought back Kobe's first signature shoe, the adidas Crazy 8, known initially as the KB8, in a series of colorways in 2023. As the basketball world reminisces about Bryant's monumental achievements, adidas is set to release the exact colorway he sported during the game where he notched up his first 30-point performance.
The adidas Crazy 8 30 Point Game is a testament to exquisite craftsmanship and pays homage to a monumental moment in Kobe's career. Dominated by a pristine white palette, the upper elegantly blends patent leather, smooth leather, and breathable mesh, offering a harmonious fusion of materials. The toe, tongue tag, collar, and heel proudly display the adidas branding, ensuring fans instantly recognize its rich lineage. The Feet You Wear (FYW) logo graces the tongue and medial heel as a nostalgic nod to the shoe's heritage. Ensuring wearers get the optimum comfort on and off the court, the sneaker is anchored with the adiPRENE+ cushioned sole unit. This comfortable foundation, presented in a monochromatic blend of black and white, is perfectly complemented by a vibrant purple and black rubber outsole.
The adidas Crazy 8 30 Point Game will release November 25, 2023, through adidas and select retailers online and in-store. Available in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $140.
