History of the Adidas Crazy 1 ADV
Originally dubbed as “The KOBE” during its release in 2000, the shoe was revolutionary because it retained not a single element of its previous collection. Instead, it featured a whole new silhouette. Adidas decided to partner with its fellow German company, Audi, in creating a revamped Kobe line. The design looks quite similar to the Audi TT Roadster. The KOBE carried a design and innovations that were provocative, controversial, and unique.
What contributed to the success of the shoe was the simultaneous success of Kobe Bryant. The basketball player made an average of 28 points during this season, earning his team a slot in the finals against Indiana Pacers. Despite having an ankle injury during one game, it didn’t keep Kobe away from earning a championship ring. It was his first out of the five championships that he had won.
As Kobe parted ways with Adidas after the KOBE II, the brand decided to shelf the shoe. It made its resurgence in 2013 and named it the Crazy 1.
