That’s still the big question that remains unanswered this offseason, and amid reports of day-long stays at the Under Armour headquarters and KD’s recent push of Nike gear in his personal Instagram, your guess is as good as ours. What we do know is that his time at Nike has been more than fruitful; since 2007, Kevin Durant has become a huge star off the court with the help of the Beaverton brand, and the combination of Durant’s massive talent and Nike’s shrewd maneuvering that has created a true superstar in basketball culture.

While adidas Originals is most known for their archival silhouettes, they’ve been blazing plenty of new paths this year with designs like the adidas ZX Flux, the SL Loop, and now the new adidas C-10. The model looks back a bit, taking cues from a few classic Three Stripes models and using them to create a bold new shoe anchored by elastic straps and sharp lines. Fortunately, the latest Game Plan from Champs Sports includes that very sneaker in all of its debut colorways.

The Game Plan from Champs Sports is also concerned with getting your gear right though. And so, the adidas C-10 is presented here with a couple of full kits to match for the different editions that are available now. Classic adidas designs are channeled via pieces like the straight black and white track pants or that jumbo-Trefoil hoodie. And veering away from the strictly athletic styles is a set of denim from the German brand. See all three of the adidas C-10 hookups here and then find out where to purchase these latest styles from Champs Sports’ The Game Plan using their store locator, and for more game, be sure to check out
