As loyal Black Mamba fans know, the shoe pictured here was originally dubbed the adidas KB8 II, Kobe Bryant’s second signature shoe ever. First released during the lockout-shortened 1998 – 1999 NBA season, the mid-top silhouette is re-christened the adidas Crazy 2, showcasing the same throwback design of the original. In addition to the wave shaped upper molding and a high-traction herringbone outsole, unique features include the signature three-stripes underneath a see-through mesh panel, as well as wide set laces for enhanced lock-down. Feet You Wear technology, enabling fast cuts, court feel and quick response, round out the details. Finished in an appealing purple shade, the adidas Crazy 2 launches July 1st at select adidas Basketball retailers and online.
