Following a 7-year hiatus, the adidas Crazy 1 made its long-awaited return in December. Next, we’ll see Kobe Bryant’s old signature shoe re-released in the popular ‘Sunshine’ colorway, which originally launched in early 2001.

The vibrant colorway, inspired by Los Angeles’ sunny weather, is highlighted by its yellow molded synthetic upper and contrasting black accents. Tomorrow, the classic releases alongside the original white-based colorway.

Today’s Eastbay Memory Lane takes us back to our Spring Sports 2001 catalog, when the ‘Sunshine’ Crazy 1 (or Kobe) graced an adidas Basketball page along with the silver colorway. Will you be picking up a pair from the 2014 re-up tomorrow?
