adidas will be releasing new colorways of three of its most popular hoops silhouettes in celebration of Chinese New Year 2018, which will be the Year of the Dog. The adidas Harden Vol. 1, Dame 4 and D Rose 8 will all be getting new looks inspired by the most noble of dogs in Chinese culture, the mastiff. adidas Basketball even brought in famed sculptor Renzhe Ren to help craft the colorways with a more artistic mindset. Harden, Rose and Lillard all paid a visit to Renzhe’s studio to discuss the designs of their respective silhouettes.
The results of this process were a new iridescent Harden Vol. 1, a pink-tinged Dame 4 with a wild multi-color outsole, and a sleek black D Rose 8 with shiny detailing. While no official release date has been set for these colorways, you can expect to see them sometime around Chinese New Year in February of 2018. Until then, check out the images of all three adidas CNY colorways below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for all the latest release details.
