adidas adiPower Howard ‘All-Star’

adidas adipower howard as 10 adidas adiPower Howard All Star

Nike Basketball went off the rails for this year’s NBA All-Star sneakers, leaving the East blue/West red motif behind in a supernova of intergalactic colorways the likes of which we’ve never seen tied to the ASG.  But if you think back to last year’s festivities, you might remember that a number of models were previewed in ‘off’ colors that didn’t make the cut.  One notable trend-breaker from 2011 was Derrick Rose, sporting the adiZero Rose in a yellow PE colored after his high school alma mater, and just this morning we’ve seen the bright orange sequel that suggests we’re in the midst of a full-on All-Star palette renaissance.  Check out fellow adidas Basketball pillar and ASG host Dwight Howard’s answer to the the adiZero Rose 2.5 ‘All-Star’, the adidas adiPower Howard in the same blazing colorway.  Has Three Stripes burned their way into your mind when it comes to ranking the NBA All Star PEs, or should adidas and everybody else keep with the traditional color assignments we’ve come to expect?  Let us know when you click through to see more of the ‘All Star’ adiPower Howard, and stick with Sneaker News for the most thorough coverage of ASG kicks leading up to the February 26th game in Orlando.

Foot Locker x adidas ‘The Difference’

foot locker adidas the difference Foot Locker x adidas The Difference

“You got everybody in here ‘Oh my gosh’-in’!”

Big Sean appropriated Rick James via MC Hammer for an entirely different purpose, but that doesn’t mean some of his lyrics aren’t indeed spot-on in describing adidas Basketball’s troupe of all-star dunkers. Three Stripes ballers Dwight Howard, Eric Gordon and Jrue Holiday were on hand for the shooting of the adidas x Foot Locker ‘The Difference’ commercial a short while back, and the cameras kept rolling after the action was wrapped because these guys decided to put on another show. With the help of an unnamed young 1 with a handle like ‘The Professor’, all kinds of oops, reverse jams and 360-did-you-see-thats are being served up fresh, and you can see the entire highlight reel after the jump below.

“9.8 ounces is nothing. 9.8 ounces is everything.”

When you’ve got the lightest basketball shoe in the world, it’s okay to brag. adidas Basketball has designed the adidas adiZero Crazy Light so that it’s so slight you can barely feel them yet their distinctive Three Striped ankle collar ensures you can recognize them from afar. It’s these kinds of edges you’ll see emphasized in the new ‘The Difference’ video from Foot Locker and adidas, a clip starring Dwight Howard and young ballers Eric Gordon and Jrue Holiday plus the Rick James via MC Hammer-sampling music of Big Sean. Click through to watch the short and let us know if your team rocks the Crazy Light. Look out for the ‘Blackout’ edition of the adiZero Crazy Light hitting Foot Locker retailers this Friday.

Dwight Howard’s D12 Celebrity All-Star Game Recap

November 14th, 2011 by | 51 comments

d12 all star recap summary Dwight Howards D12 Celebrity All Star Game Recap

The ‘other’ NBA season continued down in Florida when Dwight Howard hosted the D12 Foundation Celebrity All-Star Game at the the University of Central Florida. This game featured a bit of a twist; the two teams were divided up into New School and Old School, with the former consisting of current NBA players and the latter featuring former NBA stars like Penny Hardaway and Steve Francis. The kicks spotted on court had a heavy ‘Air Penny’ theme, as Penny himself wore the Nike Zoom Rookie ‘Memphis Blues’ during warm-ups and switched up to the all-white Foamposite One 1-of-1 PEs for the game. Other notables included Lil’ Wayne’s Binary Blue Zoom Rookies (he coached the ‘New School’ squad) and Earl Clark’s Glow In The Darks, Gilbert Arenas’ Air Jordan VI ‘Orlando’ Customs, Steve Franchise’s Air Jordan 8.0, Quentin Richardson’s Air Jordan XI ‘DMP’, and Dwight Howard’s adiPower Howard. Check out the additional images from this great charity event below and let us know who takes the crown for the best kicks! Thanks to @notmattg!

adidas adiPower Howard – Release Info

adidas adipower howard release info 08 adidas adiPower Howard   Release Info

adidas Basketball star athlete Dwight Howard was recently graced with a number 2 overall ranking in the ESPN #NBARank that went public last month. Arguments can be made for and against Dwight’s placement as the second best player in the league, but given his athleticism at a position in which dominance is so rare, we can see how the Orlando Magic All-Star Center would make any team into an instant title contender. Howard’s newest signature shoe with adidas, the adidas adiPower Howard, surfaced during the summer and released in a few team-based colorways, but the colorway we’ve been waiting for is finally here; featuring a mix of Grey/White/Royal with a speckled midsole and midfoot plate, the adidas adiPower Howard in its flagship colorway will hit adidas Basketball retailers like Foot Locker, Eastbay, and shop.adidas tomorrow, with two more colorways arriving later this year. Check out the new images of the adidas adiPower Howard below and don’t forget to get your pair!
