Adidas is re-releasing one of the less appealing sneakers they ever conceived. We at SLAMXHYPE are definitely baffled by the decision, and leaving open the possibility that their marketing team is trolling the world.
The ‘Kobe 1′ was originally released in 2000, and Kobe Bryant’s fame was enough to sell tons of these despite the international consensus that they looked like high-top hospital slippers. The style disappeared after the Black Mamba went on to make other sneakers, and we all forget about these. Until now.
If the internet’s not lying, Adidas will now be selling this yellow version of the ‘Kobe 1′, which they’re calling the ‘Crazy 1′ (pictured above) beginning Dec. 26th for $125 at select retailers. Let’s just hope whoever’s idea this was isn’t in the room when Kanye West designs his new Adidas shoe. One shoe in this style is more than enough.
