The Three Stripes is reeling in the future of its basketball division with upcoming models and color combos set to outfit its biggest athletes for the upcoming season. To celebrate the California coast and players taking part in the adidas Nations Tournament, special colorways have been developed for the Crazy Explosive, D Rose 7, Crazylight 2016 and D Lillard 2.

adidas’s innovative Crazy Explosive mixes turquoise and black coloring along its Primeknit upper and rests on top of an icy sole. In addition, you’ll find orange detailing on its branding as well as its laces. The upcoming D Rose 7 model rest atop a full length BOOST midsole and places mosaic patterns along its tongue as well as its collar as a nod to basketball’s global popularity. Gold detailing can also be found within its branding in order to complement its turquoise mesh upper.

Moving onto the low cut silhouettes, the Crazylight 2016 incorporates the same turquoise and black color combination as the Crazy Explosive, but with a jacquard upper instead of the aforementioned Primeknit. Gold adidas branding is found on the heel as well as orange detailing on its upper lace holes. The adidas D Lillard 2 stands out among the bunch due to its white upper. Damian Lillard’s second signature model doesn’t incorporate BOOST technology but does include a TECHFIT bootie for a prime lockdown fit.

adidas Nations will take place in Los Angeles, California where over 80 of the most elite players under 18 will showcase their skills amongst skilled coaches on July 29 up until July 31. The camp will come to an end on August 1 as the third-place and championship will crown the best of the best.

adidas’s Nations Collection will release on July 30, with the Crazy Explosive retailing for $150 USD and the D Rose 7 coming in at $140 USD. The Crazylight 2016 and D Lillard 2 will both be sold for $120 USD each; all four pairs will be at select retailers and online.
