Kobe Bryant is not just a legend in the court but can also be considered a shoe connoisseur. The first of Kobe Bryant’s signature shoes to ever walk the court was the Adidas KB8 which was originally released for the 1997-1998 season and has stood the test of time to be by far the world’s most popular basketball retro shoes.

The signature platform “Feet to Wear” used a technology that involved the shape of the midsole and outsole to enable your feet to move naturally. The Torsion system was an iconic feature of this shoe which sported a plastic arch support piece that alleviated any strains experienced from extra movement. Using the adiPrene cushioning, shocks experienced when landing or running were reduced.

When Kobe left for Nike, the Adidas KB8 became a relic to basketball shoe fans all over as it changed its name to the Adidas Crazy 8. Vino, the wine-colored Crazy 8 was made in 2016 to commemorate the retirement of Kobe Bryant at that time.
