We’re right in the midst of Summer streetball season — from Quai 54 to Rucker Park, there’s nothing quite like the raw flash and filay of hoops in the hood. Not only will Jordan Brand (with its Quai 54 collection) and Nike (with its NY vs NY pack) be celebrating the blacktop season, their arch-rivals from Germany will be honoring the urban tradition in their own way, with a brand-new dedicated Streetball silhouette.
Arriving in black, white and gold, the heavily 90s-inspired silhouette sports the on-trend obsession with overlays, and translucent, with retro 90s influence of mid-cuts, netting, white leather, and neoprene booties. In one of the most unique offerings from adidas this year, the adidas Streetball sports a white leather upper, black mesh mid-panel, both of which are overlayed with ashy grey suede overlays. a multi-faceted sole unit ushers in black-translucent and blue-to-white translucent pieces, along with solid grey rubbers at the heel. Add to that splashes of gold on the outsole and you’ve got yourself one hell of a maximal design. Keeping it oh-so-90s is the black neoprene inner bootie and tongue, and perforated toe box, while the Streetball-branded tongue detail ties the entire silhouette into the Summer celebration.
