When he began his NBA career, Kobe Bryant had an adidas sneaker endorsement which led to some of the most unique-looking basketball sneakers ever. One of the more memorable kicks was the ones he wore during the adidas EQT Elevation, being re-released for the first time in the ’1997 Dunk Contest’ colorway worn by Kobe Bryant in his rookie year.
Drafted in the 1996 NBA Draft, the adidas EQT Elevation was one of the first sneakers Kobe Bryant ever wore in the league.
Packer Shoes in Teaneck, NJ is the only retailer to have them for sale right now, so do not be surprised if other stores don’t receive their adidas Crazy 97 shipments for a few weeks, if ever.
