Even though Kobe Bryant passed away over three years ago, his rich legacy will continue to live on through his raw talent on the hardcourt, the Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation, and of course, his wide array of signature shoes. Now, eighteen years after its initial release, the adidas Crazy 8 is returning for another round of releases. Known mainly as the shoe that Kobe wore during his first All-Star Game, if you didn't manage to secure your size in years prior, you're in luck.
Coming back in two monochromatic color options, the first pair opts for a crisp white and grey color combination and is crafted from leather and suede. The second one, on the other hand, boasts a more retro aesthetic, with matte white leather and glossy black patent panels contrasting against each other. Woven canvas pull tabs across the tongue and heel offer a rugged look and feel, and underfoot, the Crazy 8's signature zig-zag midsole sees the light of day once again, infused with EVA foam for comfort and cushioning that's sure to dominate on the court, it's also returning with adi' critically-acclaimed Feet You Wear technology.
The adidas Crazy 8 Pack is expected to release sometime in 2023 in men's sizes. Set to arrive at adidas, the CONFIRMED app, and select online and in-store retailers worldwide, a retail price has yet TBA.
