Anthony Edwards Wears adidas AE1 Inspired By Youth Football Team

Put Anthony Edwards in any competitive setting and he’s going to thrive. That’s a claim often made by the Minnesota Timberwolves star when discussing his abilities off the basketball court, a testament of confidence made evident through viral interviews dating back to 2021.

Now harping on his pre-NBA days, Anthony Edwards debuts a special adidas AE1 paying tribute to his youth football team, the Atlanta Vikings. The shoes wear a palette of purple and gold, aligned with that of the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings, with a shiny gold cage defining the pair’s focal point. Ant-Man chose to break out these PEs during the Timberwolves-Lakers matchup in Los Angeles on Sunday, also fitting the colors of the home team with this look.

While this AE1 colorway isn’t expected to release, it highlights another dimension of the central adidas and NBA athlete. Anthony Edwards expressed a desire to become the first ever NBA/NFL player in late 2023, a lofty goal that for our purposes could hint at more non-basketball inspired shoe designs in the future. Only time will tell, but for now, enjoy a detailed look at the adidas AE1 “Atlanta Vikings” below.
