The re-released Crazy 8 has been one of the hottest shoes on the market in recent weeks, being worn by everybody from Justin Bieber in the Celebrity All-Star Game to Derrick Rose in a recent Bulls game. Though the shoe is no longer officially attached to its original endorser Kobe Bryant, here’s a new colorway that was clearly inspired by the team he suits up for.

A mixture of purple suede and leather is used for the upper, with yellow branding and detailing on the tongue, ankle and heel. White interjects on the anatomically contoured midsole, which is finished off with a purple outsole. This colorway of the Crazy 8 is available in limited quantities at Eastbay today.

Available: adidas Crazy 8 – Purple/White
