One of adidas’ most iconic on-court sneakers in the Crazy 8 is making a comeback with a few contemporary upgrades. Originally worn by the likes of Kobe Bryant, Derrick Rose, Nick Young and countless others during its prime, Italian fashion is apparently set to inject a source of inspiration to the new and improved Crazy 8 ADV PK, thanks to its full Primeknit construction and reflective detailing.

You’ll also find premium leather on its heel counter, while its sockliner hosts a marble-printed leather. For its finishing touches, the model keeps its predecessor’s original fluid tooling as an homage to the classic.

Also modeled by Young Thug & Playboi Carti, the adidas Crazy 8 ADV PK “Lusso” is slated to retail for approximately $185 USD and will launch at select adidas retailers on August 11.
