While adidas has looked to Damian Lillard, Derrick Rose, John Wall, Jeremy Lin and others for debuts of its latest silhouettes, New York Knicks guard Iman Shumpert has progressed to being the unofficial poster child of adidas retro footwear on court for quite some time. Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen a number of Crazy 1s, Real Deals, Crazy 97s and Top Tens on the Shumpert’s feet, and it seems the Three Stripes brand will continue to provide the Oak Park, Illinois native with a bevy of retro product to wear on court
In last night’s preseason game between the New York Knicks and the Philadelphia 76ers, Shumpert wore a royal and white colorway of the adidas Crazy 8. The distinctive accent is the contrasting gum bottom that was also incorporated on his white adidas Crazy 8s that he wore in the preceding game against the Toronto Raptors. View the latest adidas Crazy 8 Shumpert wore, plus more, in today’s edition of Kicks On Court.
