Adidas Releases Brooklyn Nets “Crazy 8″ Shoe
16 years ago, the "Crazy 8" debuted as Kobe Bryant's signature shoe.
HoopsVibe Very Quick Call: It looks cooler than ever in the Nets black and white.
Designed to pay homage to the Nets and Brooklyn, the black and white colorway features a map of the subway lines that surround Barclays Center on the sockliner and "Brooklyn" stitched into the ankle. Brooklyn Nets logos are displayed on the tongue and the heel while the herringbone pattern on the upper and laces replicates Barclays Center’s unique court pattern.
The shoe’s toe is done up in a patent leather and the upper features a premium suede for a bold off-court style while Pure Motion technology adds traction and stability in the foot for better feel during quick on-court moves.
The Crazy 8 Brooklyn Edition will be available for $110 on December 6 at Foot Locker, Finish Line and the Nets Team Shop at the Barclays Center.
The Crazy 8 redesign for the Nets comes on the heel of custom releases of the same shoe for individual NBA players over the last several months.
The Bulls Jimmy Butler had the "Red Python" complete with red Bulls logo. Wes Johnson had it redone with “Python/Ostrich”
