Kobe Bryant was someone who had a very iconic history in terms of the sneaker world. Although he ended up with Nike for the final stages of his career, you cannot forget his output with Adidas. Overall, his Adidas shoes were clowned a lot of the time for looking fairly bizarre. They had this space shoe quality to them that was not popular during the early 2000s. However, these days, sneakerheads look back fondly on those Adidas days. After all, Kobe is a legend and he changed the game in a lot of ways.
Recently, the three-stripes brand has been coming through with some Kobe Bryant retros. Over the past few months, we have seen old colorways of the Adidas Crazy 1 come back on the market. Ultimately, this has been great news for fans who want to experience that nostalgia. It also helps that many of these color schemes are Los Angeles Lakers-adjacent. One could just look at the “Lakers Home” color scheme to see what we mean. Subsequently, fans can now expect the Adidas Crazy 1 “Lakers Away” to make it to the market.
An Iconic Kobe Bryant Adidas Shoe
As you can see in the official images above and below, this shoe is meant to be a retro of the same sneaker Kobe Bryant wore during his 2002 NBA title run. This is a shoe that will give lots of Lakers fans memories, and Adidas did a great job here. Firstly, the shoe is mostly covered in black material. Secondly, we get pops of gold on the front, as well as the sides. Lastly, purple is also prominent here, especially on the back heel, the outsole, and then the material that runs up the tongue. Overall, Adidas knocked it out of the park with these, and we know fans will just eat these up.
If you are interested in copping this brand-new shoe, you will be able to do so as of May 1st for a price of $150 USD. If you love Kobe Bryant, these are going to be a must-cop.
