Adidas is bringing one of its modern innovations to one of its throwback basketball silhouettes from the 1990s. This time, the brand with the three stripes is putting its Primeknit material on the Adidas Crazy 8.
Those who know the history of the model will remember it debuted during Kobe Bryant's time with Adidas—it was originally called the KB8, but has since been rebranded to not mention the now Nike athlete.
The old Kobe signature gets a makeover that replaces the traditional leather and suede on the its upper with Primeknit. The debut "Lusso" colorway of the Crazy 8 ADV PK takes inspiration from Italian fashion, and has black Primeknit with an all-over reflective pinstripe pattern. Other details include a black leather heel counter, marble printed leather inner lining, white midsole, and translucent outsole.
The Adidas Crazy 8 ADV PK releases on Aug. 11 for $150.
