Even with a record that isn’t much to write home about, the Brooklyn Nets are firing on all cylinders when it comes to inspiring collaborations and new fans from the city to back-up their new hometown team. Today, adidas joins in on the Nets love with a release of a Brooklyn-themed take on the Crazy 8, rocking a black and white colorway across its high-top silhouette. Paying homage to their hometown, the insole features a map of the subway lines that surround the Barclays Center on the sockliner and “Brooklyn” stitched into the ankle. adidas also swaps out their branding for the Brooklyn Nets logos on the tongue and heel while the subtle herringbone pattern on the soft suede paneling, laces, and tongue pull replicates their home court’s pattern. The Crazy 8 Brooklyn Edition will be available for $125 on December 6 at Foot Locker, Finish Line and the Nets Team Shop at Barclays Center.
Release Date: December 6, 2013 (Friday)
