The adidas Crazy 8 pays homage to the Brooklyn Nets

High-quality, top-notch, and black are some attributes you might ascribe to the famed (or infamous) Black Mamba, Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant and rightfully so. The future Basketball Hall of Famer is known principally as one of the greatest players that the sport has ever showcased and one of the greatest athletes ever witnessed in the history of the planet, so why would any of the shoes that he’s worn be any different in quality?

Now known as the adidas Crazy 8, the former KB24 signature shoe is decked out in high style with premium materials in none other than Brooklyn Nets iconography. You can check out more of the specs below and get a better idea for the Crazy 8 ‘Brooklyn Nets’, but one thing is for sure – if you’re looking to get a pair, you better make sure you secure them when they’re made available.

Designed to pay homage to the Nets and Brooklyn, the black and white colorway features a map of the subway lines that surround Barclays Center on the sockliner and “Brooklyn” stitched into the ankle. Brooklyn Nets logos are displayed on the tongue and the heel while the herringbone pattern on the upper and laces replicates Barclays Center’s unique court pattern.

The shoe’s toe is done up in a patent leather and the upper features a premium suede for a bold off-court style while Pure Motion technology adds traction and stability in the foot for better feel during quick on-court moves.
