A four-time NBA All Star and All-NBA selection, Dwight Howard was the first player selected in the last NBA draft that allowed players straight from high school. It’s easy to forget that D-12 is only 24 years old, and that combined with his impressive physique at such an early age earned Howard the nickname ‘Manchild’. That’s what you’ll see on the tongue of his new adidas TS Beast, a nickname that will come to designate what looks to be (one of) Howard’s home shoes for the 2010-11 season. Black sections on the side panels have the look and texture of tumbled nubuck but that’s actually a finish applied to a Sprintskin upper. The black parts are framed in white and the select bright blue accents make these an obvious match for Dwight’s Orlando Magic uniforms. Check out more shots after the jump and look for these at select adidas Basketball retailers like Eastbay soon.
