adidas Crazy 1

The adidas Crazy 1 is Kobe Bryant’s first-ever signature shoe with adidas. It launched in 2000 and was called the adidas THE KOBE. After Kobe left adidas and signed with Nike, adidas released the shoes under a different name – the Crazy 1. It returned in 2014 in a variety of colorways and is poised to return again in 2022 in several original version and newer concepts.
