LA-based brand Bristol Studio and adidas Originals present “Sharp Shooters” — a partnership between the two brands that includes both basketball footwear and a range of apparel.

As previewed much earlier in the year, the duo come together to create a new edition of the Crazy BYW, which was first inspired by the Kobe Bryant KB8 and later the Crazy 8. Creative director Luke Tadashi remarks on his design elements, drawing attention from on- and off-court styling.

“Growing up in the early 2000s, I was inspired by oversized silhouettes of the day and anything Kobe Bryant did (on or off-the-court). These early loves now manifest in the form of a full basketball kit. The capsule consists of a jersey, shorts, and tracksuit, rooted in my favorite era of style. We used authentic crinkle nylon from that time period to craft the garments. I believe this interpretation is not only nostalgic for those who grew up in that era but educational for the those now being introduced to it once they step into the Bristol Studio x adidas Originals pieces.”

The collection includes two pairs of Crazy BYWs — one High and one Low. Both include materials and design cues not previously seen on the Crazy model, such as hairy leather panels, knitted textiles, translucent elements and, of course, BOOST technology. In addition to the sneakers, an apparel range is also available, which again ties into the heritage of adidas basketball. Jerseys, warm up tops, tees, loose-fitting shorts and tearaway pants arrive in a selection of tonal light brown, white and onyx. Check out the pieces above in the official lookbook modeled by rapper Buddy.

The Bristol Studio x adidas Originals “Sharp Shooters” collection will release on November 17 at adidas Originals retailers. Subsequently, the items will also be available online at Bristol Studio’s official site. For more adidas basketball, check out the purported YEEZY basketball sneaker.
