The shoes are inspired by the athletes of New York and further displays the company’s push towards increasing innovation. As said by adidas’ Senior Director of Footwear, Rashad Williams: “At all stages, the game of basketball is changing, and athletes are creating new ways to hoop. We aimed to shake up the way we create our products to match that, so players from high school to the NBA could look good, feel good and take their game to the next level. We listened to their feedback, collaborated with some of the best design minds in our company and created this new line that’s built for the kid’s game, life and world.”
Again, drawing inspiration from the area of Brooklyn, the sneakers feature an embroidery detail on each model – the numbers “11222” paying homage to the district’s zip code.
These will drop on adidas Basketball from December 1, for 24 hours only. The N3XT L3V3L, Marquee Boost, and Pro Vision will retail for $180 USD, $130 USD, and $100 USD, respectively. Check out a closer look at each model above, but get in quick, there’s a ticking clock on this one.
