The Greatest Basketball Sneakers of the 90s – Part 1
Adidas KB8 a.k.a Crazy 8 (1997)
Kobe got his first signature shoe from Adidas just one season into his career. The kicks turned out to be as popular as the Black Mamba himself with its Feet You Wear technology, designed to make the shoe feel like an extension of the foot. They have been retroed several times since the original release, renamed to Crazy 8 after Kobe jumped ship to Nike in 2002.
