Adidas All Star Crazy 8

Kobe Bryant might not be with Adidas anymore, but they continue to market the shoes that he once wore early in his career. This week’s premiere sneaker is the Adidas Crazy 8 and they are probably his most popular shoe he ever wore for Adidas. The shoe was released for the 1997-98 season and they quickly became one of the most popular shoes in the league. In Bryant’s second season, he averaged 15.4 points and 3.1 rebounds. He was selected to be a starter for the Western Conference in the 1998 NBA All-Star Game even though he was not starting for the Lakers yet.

The All-Star game in 1998 was being held in Madison Square Garden and Bryant was one of the most talked about topics that weekend. He would be going up against Michael Jordan, who he had been compared to endlessly since he entered the league. The East would go on to win the game and Michael Jordan would win the MVP, but Kobe would debut the Crazy 8 “All-Star” edition.

The Crazy 8 had to be renamed since Bryant left Adidas for Nike, but they did not make any major modifications to the design of the sneaker. They continue to be a classic sneaker and very affordable as well. They retail for about 109.99 and have many different color-ways. The original colors are still being released, but the last time the “All-Star” edition Crazy 8 were released was back in 2011.
