Adidas describes the Crazy 1 ADV Sock Primeknit as an innovative style inspired by 90s designs. Without a direct mention, the 90s design they're referring to is Kobe Bryant's signature model the Adidas Kobe (or Kobe 1), a futuristic and polarizing model that launched back in 2000. While the Primeknit version of the shoe carries very little connection to Bryant, the latest make-up is fitting for his Hollywood fanbase.

This take on the sock-like sneaker is styled in purple, helped by a bit of black along the heel. The shoe sits atop modified tooling borrowed from the Kobe 1.

The "Real Purple" Crazy 1 ADV Sock Primeknit will release on Tuesday, May 15 for $140 at adidas.com and select Adidas retailers.
