Adidas is bringing another classic hoopshoe from the Kobe lineup. Previously we had the Crazy 8 ADV and Crazy 1 ADV, now their adding BOOST to the KB8 II which will be named Adidas 98 x Crazy BYW.
Most of you should know the shoe as the 3rd signature model for Kobe Bryant in his Adidas days. The shoe was first released for the 1998/1999 season and was one of the Adidas Feet You Wear lineup. At the time it was released it was a very good performer FYW, Adiprene and Torsion. The new version has the tooling from the Adidas BYW, which has a BOOST version of the Feet You Wear tech, basically the Eva and Adiprene foam was switched with BOOST. However it’s a little bit different, we have BOOST under the heel and in the front we probably have EVA.
The Adidas 98 x Crazy BYW is set to release very soon at select adidas retailers with a retail price tag of $150 USD.
