Adidas has announced the return of the Crazy 1, sneakers made famous by the late Kobe Bryant, with a modern twist. The Adidas Crazy IIInfinity was recently unveiled at the “Remember The Why” activation during All-Star Weekend in Salt Lake City, Utah. The design builds upon the previous model’s sleek and sporty look, borrowing design cues from the Audi TT roadster. The new shoe features a slightly more rounded toe and an aerodynamic profile, with modern touches such as a zipper’d shroud.
Adidas has a long history of releasing updated versions of the Crazy 1 sneakers, with the Crazy 1 ADV in 2017 featuring a nubuck upper and the Crazy 1 ADV Sock in 2018 equipped with a Primeknit upper. However, the new Crazy IIInfinity promises to be the most modern and stylish version yet. If you’ve been waiting the best sneakers to jump into the court like The Mamba did, your time has come, dude!
The Adidas Crazy Iiinfinity, Wack but Amazingly Awesome
While exact release details have yet to be announced by Adidas, fans can look forward to the Crazy IIInfinity hitting stores before the end of 2023. In the meantime, sneaker enthusiasts can check out the preview images for a glimpse of what’s to come. Some people might say these sneakers are a little wack, and yeah, that’s true, but that’s exactly the magic of the design. If you set your feet inside these gorgeous pieces of pure engineering, you’ll feel the power of the best technology in sneakers creations and will score as many baskets as possible before the horn.
The Crazy IIInfinity is set to be released in multiple colorways later this year, but the company must release more info. So far, that’s all we have, and we’ll update it as soon as the data is released. By now, the presented model is presented in a black and white (two tones of white, indeed) combination.
Nike to Compete With His Own Tribute to Kobe
Along with the Adidas Crazy IIInfinity, the Kobe 4 Protro Gigi sneakers are also set to release on May 1st, offering fans even more options to pay tribute to the late basketball icon, entrepreneur, and philanthropist.
The Team Mamba colors, a nod to Gigi’s former AAU team, prominently cover the uppers, while the heels feature her moniker embroidered on the heightened half and a gold “2” printed closer to the soles. A crisp white hue dominates the collars, perforated toe boxes, Kobe-signed heel cups, and mesh tongues. Meanwhile, the quarter panels boast a smoother finish than the previously released Kobe 4s, with no exposed Flywire technology.
Black accents add depth to the overall design and can be found on the laces, Swooshes, and collars. To give the shoes an extra touch of flair, gingham patterns wrap around the rear. As Nike expands the Black Mamba’s signature line, the “Gigi” colorway will surely be a coveted addition for both Kobe and Gigi fans. Stay tuned for more updates on these highly anticipated sneakers releases from Adidas and Nike.
