Capitalizing on the recent success of ’90s basketball peers in the Crazy 8 and Top Ten 2000, Three Stripes resurrected another EQT-era baller for 2013. The adidas Real Deal has been a welcome surprise, bringing back the original colorways along with a variety of new styles including the one pictured above. This latest drop has a unique visual appeal that comes not from a complicated colorway, but rather the printed sockliner and speckled midsole sandwiching the tonal blue upper. A curious graffiti emblem falls in between on the lateral ankle, so you’ll want to check out all these details in more photos, then grab a pair from adidas Originals retailers like Oneness.
These, the Top Ten 2000's, and Crazy 8's are really good hoops shoes. Anyone who digs a solidly built, tough and well made basketball shoe, one that can take an butt whipping, should really look into these shoes.
