adidas Crazy 97
The adidas Crazy 97 is familiar to the 90’s kids but may look jarring to the new generation. It is a piece of basketball history that’s worth remembering.
Release Date: 2022
The 1990s was a golden era for both basketball and basketball shoes. We got some of the most iconic sneakers like the Air Jordan 11, Air Jordan 12, and this bad boy, the adidas Crazy 97, otherwise known as the adidas EQT Elevation. Kobe Bryant wore these shoes as he won the Slam Dunk contest championship. We miss the Mamba, and we’re glad some of his classic shoes get released so we can better remember his career.
