The rosters for the 2021 McDonald’s All-American Game — an All-Star type hoops event that only invites elite high school hoops prospects — have been announced, and so adidas — the sportswear sponsor of the event — is celebrating by crafting its Pro Model 2G with a fast food-inspired makeover. Its design appropriately draws from the McChicken manufacturer’s signature colors and logos.

Given that McDonald’s is globally identified by its golden arches, the Three Stripes rips that very same potent yellow hue and applies it to the glossy leathers that build its side panels. In fact, the actual “M” logo from which that stands tall adjacent to every location rests towards the lateral heel in oversized fashion. From there, the chain’s bold red hue found on its immaculate french fries boxes is dripped across the stripes and rear adidas logo, the collar embroidery and the “i’m lovin’ it” slogan spelled out across the forefoot.

On the tongues, the McDonalds All-American Game seal is stamped on top to directly nod to the basketball showdown. Elsewhere on these kicks, you’ll find the laces and bottoms swathed in the same golden tone as the upper.

No release date has been confirmed as of yet, but it’s likely that these will see a release in the coming months.

For more on the latest from the Three Stripes, the adidas Cadet model from the 70’s is receiving a reissue.
