Adidas Hoops Black History Month Arthur Ashe Collection 01

adidas Hoops is honoring the legacy of historic professional tennis player Arthur Ashe and his contributions to the sport through their latest Black History Month Collection set to arrive at select retailers on January 23rd, 2017 featuring their latest basketball models from James Harden, Damian Lillard, and Derrick Rose. The limited edition colorways pay homage to the philanthropic and athletic legacy of one of the greatest tennis players of all time through muted colorways and unique graphics throughout the trio of signature basketball models.

The adidas Harden Vol. 1, the adidas D Lillard 3, and adidas D Rose 7 each feature updated scholastic legacy webbing, a Multi-Color pattern throughout the individual sockliners, and subtle details throughout in honor of Ashe’s honorary degrees that he received from over 20 universities throughout his life.

The adidas Harden Vol. 1 “Black History Month” features a subtle black and grey Primeknit construction with premium white leather while the D Lillard 3 and D Rose 7 Boost each feature classic white uppers with high-contrast black panels to pay tribute to the traditional performance tennis gear from Ashe’s era. An “AA” graphic is printed on the sockliner and not only stands for Arthur Ashe’s initials but also pays tribute to AIDS Awareness and his Anti-Apartheid stance. A 1975 graphic honors his legendary Wimbledon victory and No. 1 world ranking at the time.
