Not even a loaded gun could stop this hot design. adidas axed Gilbert Arenas after the mercurial Washington Wizards point guard “pick[ed] one” of the dumbest pranks in the history of, well, ever. Three Stripes had already designed the next Gil Zero signature, and rather than scrap it altogether, here’s the new adidas Elemental Formotion 3. It’s one of the smoothest looks from adidas Basketball since the still-ahead-of-its-time Kobe II, but the futurism is decidedly toned down, and even more so thanks to this slick black/gold colorup. These shoes were just made for summer ball outdoors with the Gil Zero logos replaced with adidas branding. If you like what you see, you can already find several colorways available at select adidas retailers. via CK/kenlu.
