The adidas Kobe 2 (Crazy 2) Returns in 2025

Published on

Adidas is diving back into its archives to re-release a shoe that caused quite a stir back in the early 2000s – the adidas Crazy 2 (formerly known as the Kobe 2). This was Kobe Bryant’s last signature shoe with the brand before his infamous “sneaker free agency” and eventual deal with Nike.

The Crazy 2 (Kobe 2), originally released in late 2001, was known for its bold design inspired by the Audi TT. The low-top silhouette divided opinions, with some praising its innovation and others finding it bizarre. The shoe also played a part in Kobe’s reported dissatisfaction with adidas, ultimately leading him to leave the brand.

Despite the controversy, the Crazy 2 holds a unique place in sneaker history. It represents a time of adidas taking design risks and Kobe’s early years as a rising star.

For those feeling nostalgic or simply curious about this piece of sneaker history, adidas is bringing back the Kobe 2 in 2025! The re-release will feature two original colorways.

The “All-Star” (White/Yellow) pair that Kobe wore when he won 2002 All-Star Game MVP in Philly will release in February 2025, coinciding with the NBA All-Star Weekend. The “Silver Metallic” pair will be hitting shelves later in April 2025. Both colorways will be available for a price of $160 USD.

The return of the Kobe 2 is a chance to revisit a shoe that was ahead of its time in terms of design. Whether this bold silhouette finds a new generation of fans or remains a collector’s item, it’s sure to spark conversation among sneaker enthusiasts.
