Ahead of next month's adidas D Howard 4 launch, this unique early production sample has surfaced on eBay.
Though the inspiration behind the colorway is unknown, perhaps it could be linked to the Dallas Mavericks, one of Howard's suitors when he tested free agency this past summer. The shoe features a predominantly grey upper printed with Dwight's signature shattered glass pattern throughout. A grey-to-blue gradient transition was used moving from toe to heel. CD-inspired metallic hits appear on the tongue and heel pull-tab. Vibrant neon works heel branding and the insoles. A blue and white flex outsole caps off the look below.
No word yet on whether or not this pair will drop in the future, but you can pick up this sample from uregenerate on eBay now.
