Like Andre Drummond on Tuesday, New York Knicks swingman Iman Shumpert showed his 3-Stripe pride this week by reaching into the adidas Basketball vault and pulling out a classic from yesteryear.

While shooting at Jordan Barbershop in the Bronx earlier today, Shumpert was laced up in a pair of the adidas KB8 II, Kobe Bryant's second signature sneaker from 1998. The 'Feet You Wear' model was lighter than its predecessor due to increased use of synthetic materials. Bold stripes on the sides, heritage EQT lines and adiPrene cushioning also helped make up Kobe's oft-forgotten sig.

With the Crazy 8 (KB8) and Crazy 97 (EQT Elevation) already back on shelves, is it time that adidas considers a KB8 II return? Check out Shump's picture below and let us know what you think.
