The shoe's sock-like upper combined with its unconventional midsole design calls for flaunting and flexing down the main street. Its innovative design coupled with a sporty vibe exude a street attitude that could turn heads and spark interests everywhere you go.

Show off a cutting-edge streetwear style by pairing this kick with cropped, straight-cut pants and a sweatshirt or tuck your jogger's hem into the shoe's collar to give off an effortlessly cool athleisure ensemble. Ladies were seen pairing it with midi skirts or dresses and wide-legged pants for a modern feminine flair

Notable Features

This pair's overall design is unique in every sense of the word and seems like whatever angle you gaze upon this fashion-forward kick you will find a notable feature. The shoe's sock-like upper provides not only a futuristic silhouette but also a form-fitting feel that is highly structured and durable. The horizontal ribs serve three purposes: structure, aesthetic, and branding: the thicker ribbings in the midfoot serve as the Adidas Three Stripe logo.

On the rear part of the upper is a leather heel cuff that serves as a heel tab and a stylish embellishment as well. The kick's midsole features a concave cut out in the midfoot area while the outsole displays a convex shape that contributes to the overall futuristic look of the shoe.

Adidas Crazy 1 ADV Sock Primeknit History

The Adidas Crazy 1 line came from the partnership between the brand and Kobe Bryant. Before becoming one of the best NBA players, Kobe signed a deal with Adidas right after graduating high school. Although this partnership didn't last long, the collaboration produced two basketball shoes – the Kobe and the Kobe Two. These sneakers were not received well in the sneaker scene and were considered weird and too futuristic, which led to its eventual shelving.

In 2017, Adidas decided to resurface the Kobe with an all-new moniker and design called the Crazy 1. The shoe features a completely revamped look that's apt for the modern day sneaker world. With leather upper, neoprene tongue and unique silhouette, it is considered a fashionable shoe today. One of its offspring is the Adidas Crazy 1 ADV Sock Primeknit, which took the original Adidas Kobe's futuristic signature to a whole new level.

The Adidas Crazy 1 ADV Sock Primeknit displays a never-before-seen ribbed knit upper construction. It comes in four neutral colorways for easy pairing with endless outfit choices.
