Need proof that anything, no matter how maligned at the time of its release, can eventually become a classic? Well, there's the people who collect cars like Edsels and Chevy Corvairs. And then there's the adidas KOBE TWO. Abandoned even by Kobe himself during the Lakers's 2002 playoff push, remaining pairs of these Audi-designed lingered in outlets forever, eventually being marked down to less than $20. Now, a decade later, a deadstock size 10 pair in the GR dark grey colorway is closing in fast on $200 with plenty of time left. Looks like anyone who loaded up when they bottomed out made a wise buy. Who knew?
