Earlier this week, we considered eight awesome basketball shoes that will likely never get the retro treatment. No need to fret, there are plenty of great hoops silos that should be set to hit stores soon. Keeping in mind trends in release and demand for product, we spotlight eight hardwood favorites we anticipate returning as retros in the near future.

Released: 1998
Worn By: Kobe Bryant

Likely to be dubbed the ‘Crazy 8 II’ in retro form, this Kobe signature seems like a sure thing with adidas Basketball’s recent push of iconic Feet You Wear models and their endorsement by NBA players. We’d love to see these return in the OG colorways, but modern PEs might be even better. Could you imagine an orange or blue based pair for Iman Shumpert? A red colorway for Damian Lillard? Crazy indeed.
