The adidas Crazy 8 Gets a Primeknit Upgrade

adidas has finally upgraded the classic Crazy 8 with Primeknit.

We’ve been watching adidas revamp classic Originals models with Primeknit and Boost over the past year and hoopers have been wondering when we’d see this happen to the brand’s classic hoops models.

The time has finally come because Primeknit is featured top to bottom on the Crazy 8. This updated model is geared towards lifestyle because all adidas Equipment branding has been replaced with the adidas Originals trefoil logo. You can probably take this model on-court if you wanted to, but the purpose of the redesign was intended for lifestyle appeal.

You can already find the adidas Crazy 8 PK ADV available overseas but stay tuned for a Stateside release in the near future.

Let us know your thoughts on the revamping of classic hoop shoes down below in the comment section as well. Boost needs to be next!

  1. As a Kobe stan that didn’t get enough Crazy 8/KB8/whatever, take my ****ing money once this the colorway is right. The lacing should be better than the original.

  2. If the support is there, these could lowkey be a great hoop shoe, since the Crazy 8 was decent on court, but pretty heavy, not breathable, and just bulky in general (which I guess was the thing when it released). Primeknit should make it way, way lighter, more flexible, and hopefully legitimately playable.

  3. Wonder how the heel lockdown will be without the criss-cross straps in the back.. wish they kept the original lacing system that was part of the iconic look of the Crazy 8s. Would love to try them out on court at a good price though

  4. I like the look, but Boost wouldn’t work as a replacement cushion in the old kicks that had Feet You Wear.
