Back in 1997, an impossibly young Kobe Bryant wowed basketball fans everywhere with his performance in the 1997 NBA Dunk Contest. And as he did this, he was wearing a pair of purple adidas PEs, the same sneakers that provide the inspiration for this new EQT Elevation colorway.
Called “1997 Dunk Contest,” these adidas EQT Elevation sneakers are pretty much duplicates of the PE that Kobe wore 16 years ago. The mostly purple upper is joined by jagged hits of white and black, as well as dark yellow adidas logo circles.
To get your own pair of “1997 Dunk Contest” adidas EQT Elevation sneakers, hit up an online retailer like this one. And you can see a few photos of the shoe up top.
