A very unorthodox rework.

A month after the unveiling of the Crazy 8 ADV PK “Lusso,” adidas is stepping out of its comfort zone for a “Core White” Snakeskin iteration of the Crazy 8 ADV.

A unique rework of the original Crazy 8 design, the new “Snakeskin” version of the shoe features the material that inspired its namesake, suede paneling and a blend of various off-white colors; faint streaks of black are strewn across scaly textile panels, and a sharply-shaped, curved sole dominates the bottom portion. When it comes to components that steal attention and capture gazes, snakeskin on shoes is definitely one striking way to turn heads. If Kobe was still in the league, you bet the Black Mamba would strap these on and dominate the competition.

You can take a look at the new adidas Crazy 8 ADV “Core White” Snakeskin above while the sneaker itself can be purchased at Caliroots.
