From the NCAA’s legendary Fab Five from Michigan University to his Rookie of the Year season with the Golden State Warriors and electrifying All Star years with the Sacramento Kings, Chris Webber will go down as one of the best power forwards to ever play the game of basketball. C-Webb was notoriously one of the most journeyed players ever when it came to sneaker sponsors, wearing everything from Nike to adidas to FILA to name the major ones…but one of his most memorable sneakers came from Dada with the chromed-out CDubbz.
Along with the infamous Spinners from Latrell Sprewell, the CDubbz were the urban wear label Dada’s most successful dip into the athletic sneaker market. Originally released in 2002, the CDubbz were one of the loudest and most eye-catching shoes of the time, sporting a patent leather upper complete with metallic “wing” design. As you can see on this page, they came in a number of colorways including a “Wood Kit” option, but the most notorious of them all were the all-chrome-everything pair Webber wore in the 2002 NBA All Star game, unfortunately unavailable from this Eastbay catalog.
Check out the CDubbz along with another Dada signature shoe for Webber, the C4, and take a trip down memory lane with one of the most memorable basketball shoes from the early 2000’s.
