With Kobe Bryant’s estate no longer partnered with Nike, it remains to be seen what the future holds for Black Mamba footwear. Although no deal has been signed with former partner adidas, the German brand has plans to reissue shoes once associated with the late legend. Rebranded as the adidas Crazy 1 in 2014, the adidas The Kobe will be one of those relics as news of a return is due in April.
The shoes were designed with the Audi TT Roadster in mind, and when it first arrived at retail, reactions were polarized. Some praised adidas for taking risks, others ridiculed for releasing a shoe that looked too abstract. Still, it’s one of the most memorable basketball shoes in history, and you’ll be able to get them once again under the Crazy 1 label (unless adidas pull off the unexpected and renews a partnership that has not existed for nearly two decades).
