adidas looks to bring back Kobe Bryant’s footwear line with a slew of releases set for 2022.

Before the late Kobe Bryant laced up Nike’s as a signature athlete, he was an official member of adidas. He was with the Brand with the Three Stripes from 1996 to 2003. During that time frame several signature sneakers were made for the Black Mamba and released. While only two were labeled “The Kobe,” KB8’s were the introduction into his footwear legacy.

Confirmed in early 2021, adidas is set to bring back two classic Kobe Bryant signature silhouettes, the Kobe 1 as well as the EQT Elevation. First up is the EQT Elevation, which is now known as the adidas Crazy 97 EQT. The original Lakers-themed purple, black and white colorway is up first. Nicknamed the “Dunk Contest” edition, Bryant originally laced this pair up during the 1997 NBA Dunk Contest which was held in Cleveland. Coincidentally, the 2022 NBA All-Star festivities will be held in Cleveland, making for a great tie-in for the upcoming drop.

Keeping things OG, the adidas Crazy 97 EQT “Dunk Contest” sports a purple-based leather upper with black and white accents. Gold branding is found via the embroidered Three Stripes branding on the tongue and Feet You Wear holograms (on the tongue and lateral sides).

The adidas Crazy 97 EQT is set to release on February 12th, 2022. It will launch at adidas as well as select retailers both in-store and online. They will be available in men’s sizes retailing for $130. Keep it locked to our Twitter and Mobile App to stay up to date on this release as it gets closer.
