Officially renamed the Crazy 1 as of the year 2013, this classic Kobe Bryant signature sneaker is among the more polarizing basketball shoes off all-time. Both lauded and derided for its lack of convention, the Crazy 1 — designed by Eirik Lund Nielsen — was inspired by the Audi TT car, astutely representing a new millennium of design with aerodynamic molded edges. It was truly unlike anything else on the market, and the reception mirrored the public’s acceptance of Kobe, a cocky star whose comparisons to Michael Jordan rubbed many the wrong way.

Already dropping in a few colorways, the adidas Crazy 1 is set to return in the original white/black colorway dubbed the “Stormtrooper”. Retailers across the pond such as END have a release date scheduled for July 21st, so check out this detailed look and stay tuned for other retailers to carry them as well. A US release date is still TBD.

In other adidas news, the next batch of adidas IVY PARK shoes are dropping on July 21st.
