Inspired by Houston's history of aviation, speed and style, adidas Basketball athletes Dwight Howard, Tim Duncan and Jrue Holiday will wear special editions of the D Howard Light, adizero Crazy Light 2 and Crazy Fast at the 62nd NBA All-Star Game.
All-Star sneakers feature an impact camouflage pattern, designed to stand out on the court, showcase bold style and evoke the exhilaration that comes from being faster than your opponent.
The Crazy Fast features an all-new SprintWeb design with tighter panels to improve support, reduce weight and make players quicker and more comfortable on the court. Design is inspired by the speed and power of a combustion engine and the drive inside players to dominate on the court. The green zest colorway will be worn by Jrue Holiday of the Philadelphia 76ers (East), Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs (West) and Rising Stars Challenge and NBA All-Star Saturday Night participants.
Also rolling out in the impact camo green zest style is the adizero Crazy Light 2. At 9.5 ounces, it is the lightest basketball shoe on the planet.
Seven-time All-Star Dwight Howard will wear the D Howard Light in impact camo red. The D Howard Light is his lightest signature shoe to date and comes equipped with more support and comfort. It features a reflective tongue made of chrome material inspired by the backside of a compact disc to pay homage to his passion for music. The chromed three stripes and heels will pop under the bright lights at the NBA All-Star game.
These All-Star edition sneakers will launch this Friday, February 1 at adidas.com and select Houston retailers.
