The 1998 NBA All-Star game had plenty of hype behind it. The main match-up that everyone was looking forward to was a young Kobe Bryant Vs. the legendary Michael Jordan. At the time, Kobe was still a 6th man for the Los Angeles Lakers, but ended up starting for the West. That night he wore this same colorway in his signature shoe, the adidas Crazy 8, hence the nickname “98 All Star”. The shoe sports a black design along with minimal purple and gold contrasts, as well as white accents. Look for them to return in November.
