The adidas Crazy 8 Sneakers That Kobe Bryant Wore During The 1998 NBA All-Star Game Are Available Now
Believe it or not, Kobe Bryant was playing in the NBA—and playing well—all the way back in 1998. That seems like a lifetime ago and, well, it is. Most of the guys who were playing in the league back in 1998 are long gone. But Kobe is still playing in the NBA. And while he has been hampered by injuries this season, there’s no doubt in our minds that he still has a little bit left in the tank. The Kobe Bryant of 1998 will still emerge at least a few more times before the end of the current NBA season.
Kobe will not be wearing the same sneakers that he was wearing back in 1998 when he gets back onto the court, though. But those sneakers are available right now if you’re interested in picking up a pair. Kobe’s not running with adidas these days—he’s moved on to Nike—which is why he won’t be wearing the same signature sneakers he wore in 1998 this year. But for a limited time, you can pick up the adidas Crazy 8 “1998 All-Star Game” sneakers that Kobe wore during the 1998 NBA All-Star Game now. They feature a black upper, hits of white, purple and yellow, and the “Feet You Wear” design that made the Crazy 8 sneaker one of the most unique basketball sneakers ever. They’re still every bit as dope today as they were when Kobe wore them 16 years ago.
If you’re interested in picking up a pair of the adidas “1998 All-Star Game” sneakers, they’re currently available through select adidas retailers. They’re selling for $110 but will likely only be available for a short time. Are you planning on picking up a pair of these adidas sneakers in order to relive Kobe’s past—or are you more interested in picking up one of the new sneakers that he’s releasing through Nike? Let us know in the comments section below once you’re done checking out a few more images of Kobe’s classic sneaker.
