If you happened to check into the Rookie Challenge on Friday night of All-Star weekend, it was impossible not to notice the retina-piercing yellow sneakers on the court. Several players were rocking the Adidas adiPURE shoes for the game and these babies were bright yellow. As I wrote on twitter (follow LBS), it was just like watching Oregon’s football team during the National Championship Game. Jrue Holiday, Wesley Johnson, Serge Ibaka, Taj Gibson, James Harden, and Steph Curry were some of the players blinding us on the floor with their yellow shoes. Here’s an up-close look at these babies:
We know Adidas has been rolling out special items for the weekend including tight-fitting jerseys, and new shoes for Derrick Rose, Dwight Howard, and Snoop Dogg, but I’d say they swung and missed with these ones. When I watch the NBA, I want to keep my eyes on the ball and not the feet. Thanks guys.
