Before Kobe signed with Nike Basketball, the Lakers legend was under adidas and rocked one of the most memorable sneakers in the adidas basketball line – the Adidas Crazy 1. Adidas Hoops finally retros this classic basketball sneaker come December 26th, 2013 for $125.
Inspired by the speed and sleek design of German sports cars, Crazy 1 features a curved, aerodynamic upper with molding on the heel and toe modeled after a car’s grill and lights. The upper is done up in a matte finish inspired by the popular luxury paint job of high-end automobiles, while the midfoot arch is exaggerated to form the shape of a car’s wheel well. A double foam collar provides added ankle support while the torsion system improves stability and traction during quick cuts.
