One could easily conclude the only single-digit number Kobe Bryant has in mind is ‘6’, but it wasn’t all that long ago that we used to associate the Mamba with ‘8’. Kobe rocked the snowman for the first decade of his NBA career and wore adidas for the majority of that period. Three Stripes can no longer use Bryant’s name or likeness, but his first signature shoe will soon see another retro release to remind us of KB’s 1997-98 ‘sophomore’ year. The adidas Crazy 8 (formerly ‘KB8’) is a legend in its own right, its unmistakable Feet You Wear traction and midsole pattern one of the more unique in history. Eastbay shows us that at least four colorways will hit next year, so which of these Kobe Bryant adidas retros would you pick?
