The year was 2000. Following the heroic leadership – and unmistakable ‘fro – of Kobe Bryant throughout the season, the Los Angeles Lakers eventually won a championship – and would go on to win two more in the following years. It was, in many senses, a golden era for basketball – a fitting time for adidas to unveil its radical Kobe 1 basketball shoe to the world. Thirteen years after the initial release, adidas Basketball has re-released the silhouette for modern audiences in time for the holiday season, renaming the shoe the “Crazy 1.” Some may fondly recall the shoe’s unorthodox upper, which was originally influenced by German sports cars. The molded toe box and heel are meant to resemble the lights and the front grill of a sleek roadster, while the midfoot arch is shaped to allude to car wheel wells. The Crazy 1 will be available for $125 through adidas Basketball, as well as select retailers like Shoe Palace, on December 26.
