Dropping a signature sneaker right in the middle of summer? While the timing of this one may not make sense, that doesn’t mean we aren’t welcoming the adidas adiPower Howard with open arms. If you thought adidas was slouching on the basketball side of things, this may be the pair to change your mind. Built for Dwight Howard, they are loaded with cushioning to help handle the full force of a man that big, and the upper utilizes Sprintskin, adidas lightweight answer to Nike’s Hyperfuse technology. Of course the debut colorway is an Orlando one, with the clean blue and white combo looking nice, especially the icy sole on bottom. Hit the jump for a full look at the adidas adiPower Howard and get a pair now from adidas online.
