While Kobe Bryant's days with adidas are long gone, the Three Stripes has continued to produce the signature sneakers that he wore with them, and now it looks like they might be honoring his upcoming retirement with a special pack. Fresh Pair PH took to Instagram to show off these new cork colorways of the Crazy 8, Crazy 97, and Top 10 2000, raising questions about the timing of these sneakers.
Cork material has become a popular feature on sneakers lately, and with it often being paired with wine colors, it definitely gives off celebration or toast vibes. With Bryant's legacy with the brand deep, and career coming to a close, it makes sense that adidas would create something special with these models. The words "Nascita," Viaggio," and "Trionfo" are used on the tongues these sneakers, meaning birth, voyage, and triumph, which also suggests a potential tribute theme. We don't expect adidas to come out and fully say this pack is dedicated to Bryant's career, but hopefully we get more info on them soon.
