While Kobe Bryant’s days as an adidas athlete have long been over, the brand is still capitalizing off of his first signature shoe, the Crazy 8. In 2017, adidas has made renovations to the new Crazy 8 ADV which is now arriving in a clean Navy colorway with what appears to be an upper made from mesh rather than Primeknit. adidas’ new additions to the shoe have allowed it to make a seamless transition from on-court functionality to lifestyle wearability. While this (or any other Crazy 8) offering won’t come with Kobe’s name attached, it will always be remembered as one of the best creations from their partnership.
The newest Crazy 8 ADV is popping up at retailers overseas, so expect to see them at select adidas retailers in the US soon.
