Nothing brings on that hometown flavor like local artists can. For the upcoming Maui Invitational, adidas Basketball hooked up with Hawaii native Che Pilago of Moku Nui to create this exclusive set of gear for the Maui Invitational championship, during which Kansas, Michigan, UCLA, Tennessee and Chaminade will face off during the ten-day tournament. In addition to the local art-infused gear, the adidas outfitted schools will wear the adiZero Crazy Light as well as the adidas Crazy 8, while the coaches will don the adidas X-Hale Low training shoe. Check out some extra imagery of the art (inspired by Ku, the Hawaiian god of war) and tune into the Maui Invitational games beginning tonight!
