Adidas has a rich history producing basketball sneakers, beginning in the 40`s with the “Trainingsstiefel” and later in the 70`s with the Superstar. Later, in the 90`s adidas tried out a more futuristic design with the Crazy 8, a high-top basketball shoe with a wavy midsole. This classic shoe makes a return now by keeping the same look but with an advanced technology. The sneaker comes inspired by Italian fashion in a full black Primeknit upper with reflective stripes. A premium black leather heel counter and marble print sockliner add to the luxurious look. The white midsole comes a lightweight cushioning all based on the injected EVA (ethylene vinyl-acetate) and a rubber outsole.
