Adidas Originals Is Relaunching An Iconic 90’s Basketball Shoe With Two Dope New Styles
Adidas Originals knows what millennials want, and what we want are the sick throwback styles from our childhoods. Beginning on Wednesday, November 22nd (at 3am), adidas Originals is bringing back one of the most iconic basketball shoes from the 90’s, the Crazy.
They’ll be rolling out two new styles of the Crazy, the Crazy 8 ADV PK and Crazy ADV, and both are available for purchase next week.
The Crazy 8 ADV PK Shoes will come in Black and Sesame, both with Running White accents. Here’s what adidas has to say about these iconic shoes:
Finding inspiration in ’90s culture, the look of these basketball-style sneakers riot against established fashion rules and pushes through conventional design boundaries. The adidas Primeknit upper of these men’s shoes is stripped down to reveal a sleek, progressive look featuring a striped knit pattern. Contrasting matte and glossy tonal finishes accent the hardwood favorite that rides on a smooth rubber outsole. (via)
