Sneaker peek: Adidas unveils limited edition Brooklyn-inspired Crazy 8 basketball shoe

Crazy 8 Brooklyn

Today, adidas unveiled a limited edition Crazy 8 basketball shoe inspired by the Brooklyn Nets and the city the team calls home.

Designed to pay homage to the Nets and Brooklyn, the black and white colorway features a map of the subway lines that surround Barclays Center on the sockliner and “Brooklyn” stitched into the ankle. Brooklyn Nets’ logos are displayed on the tongue and the heel while the herringbone pattern on the upper and laces replicates Barclays Center’s unique court pattern.

The shoe’s toe is done up in a patent leather and the upper features a premium suede for a bold off-court style while Pure Motion technology adds traction and stability in the foot for better feel during quick on-court moves.
