Crazy 8 1998 AS Game

In 1998 Kobe Bryant stepped onto the Madison Square Garden court with legends and future Hall of Famers and put up 18 points and almost a victory against the one who people would compare him with for the rest of his life, MJ. In his losing efforts Kobe rocked the adidas Crazy 8 and now in 2014 we will get a chance to add it to our own closets. A black tumbled leather upper took up most of the kicks while black patent leather sections sat in between. Of course hints of his own team, the Los Angeles Lakers, stood out on the tongue patch, heel and tongue tabs, “8” logo and the adidas branding on the side that are all either yellow or purple. A white and black wavy midsole finish off another classic pair of kicks that can be yours now if you head over to Packer Shoes online.
