This throwback to the ’90s is a take on the bold, colorful basketball kicks of the past, inspired by one of the Three Stripes best-performing offerings, the 1993 Streetball II. The mid-cut profile is made from a premium mixture of suede, mesh and leather, combining its predominately black upper with segments of “Carbon” grey at the rear and overlaying “Blue” panels made from sculpted rubber and suede on the mid-panel.
Complementing its technical design is the Lightstrike midsole, which gives the sneaker a super-light, high-traction feel both on and off the court. A semi-hidden rope lacing system and classic adidas branding on the tongue and sides round off this pair.
Take a look at the adidas Originals Streetball in “Core Black/Blue/Carbon” in the gallery above, and pick up a pair for yourself at retailers such as Browns for $106 USD.
In other news, the adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 is rumored to release in “Flax” and “Linen.”
