The adidas Crazy 8 has seen its share of Lakers inspired releases but this time they have thrown snakeskin the mix.

A sneaker that Kobe Bryant made famous, in a Lakers colorway, with snakeskin – dare I say “Mamba” – accents, very interesting move from adidas who were the first  to carry Kobe’s sneaker contract.  The Lakers influence is not just in the colors, the sneaker also features Lakers branding and signature “palm trees.”  As for the snakeskin accents, yellow is found in the upper and black snakeskin accents the midsole.

These kicks are available for Lakers fans at select adidas retailers now. With adidas not renewing their contract with the NBA, do you think whoever picks it up next will do team inspired sneakers like these?
