Year Introduced: 2001

Team basketball shoes are generally dreary affairs, either inexpensive takedowns of signature models or generic models destined for the Dick's Sporting Goods clearance tables. The adidas Bromium II (and it's eponymous predecessor) were something different -- essentially a signature-shoe level product that just didn't happen to have a signature attached. In fact, some of the design cues from the Bromium series are evident on 2013's CrazyQuick.
