adidas Crazy 97 EQT “1997 All-Star” by Kobe Bryant


Reported in December, the original by Kobe Bryant adidas Crazy 97 EQT sported during the NBA Dunk Contest will be on the shelves again with a new colourway silver, blue, orange dubbed the “1997 All-Star”. The Black Mamba’s legacy continues to live on despite the end of the long-standing partnership between its estate and Nike as the German sportswear powerhouse established to bring some of the first styles worn back to the heyday of its Three Stripes heyday.

Bryant was nothing but extraordinary as the Philadelphia-born NBA star was drafted by the Charlotte Hornets before a quick trade with the Los Angeles Lakers in the 1996 draft and went on to win the ’97. Dunk Contest which was only the tip of the iceberg at the start of his career as a professional basketball player.

This early offer carries over the official hues of the particular All-Star weekend, as the rods are assembled with silver overlays housing a puddle of bright blue, alternating black and white stripes and the brand emblem in orange. Paying homage to the event, the tongue tab reads “1997” and an All-Star motif of the brand’s FYW motif sits on the heel. A band of black drummed leather completes the shoe on a White midsole and black speckled rubber outsole.

The adidas Crazy 97 EQT “1997 All-Star” by Kobe Bryant is set to release in select retailers in February, just in time for All-Star Weekend 2022.

Elsewhere in shoes, Bad Bunny’s adidas Forum Low in white appeared in her new video shoot.
