In honor of one of the most influential athletes in history,
To celebrate his tremendous accomplishments, adidas has put together a pack of three unmistakable silhouettes. The sportswear behemoth has reworked the D Rose 6, D Lillard 2 and Crazylight Boost 2.5 with eye-catching details that pay homage to Jesse Owens. Each variation showcases a palette of cream tones, dark brown colorations and gold accents. Signature embellishments are also added, including Owens’ 733 bib number rendered with gold foil on the tongue and a 1936 graphic print in the sockliner. The exclusive collection will debut during the Martin Luther King Jr. Day games, introduced by the likes of James Harden, Damian Lillard, Derrick Rose and more. The basketball players will continue to wear the commemorative models in select games throughout February to celebrate Black History Month. The exclusive collection will drop later this month at adidas online.
