With Veterans Day right around the corner, adidas has unveiled a set of basketball sneakers meant to honor those who have served in the armed forces.
The collection is basketball focused, featuring the adidas D Rose 6, adidas D Lillard 1, adidas Crazyquick 3 and the adidas Crazylight Boost 2015 in Low and Mid cuts. The sneakers wear patriotic reds, whites and blues along with graphic poppy prints.
The use of the poppy print motif is confusing as the wearing of the flower is usually associated with Memorial Day and not Veterans Day.
Watch for players on the adidas Basketball roster to wear these sneakers leading up to, and on, Veterans Day on Nov. 11.
