NBA star Trae Young launches his next Adidas Signature shoe E! News UK
Trae Young led his Atlanta Hawks to a 107-105 victory over the New York Knicks last night in Game 1 of the 2021 NBA Playoff Round 1. During the game, the baller made his debut with his next Adidas signature basketball shoe.
When Young hit the court at Madison Square Garden in New York, he had a pair of Adidas Trae Young 1 laced up in the “Peach Tree” colourway. The peach hue consumed most of the shoe, taking up the entire upper and midsole. The high cut look features pops of green throughout, from white to the heel, and is completed with a gum outsole.
Although the shoe has been revealed, Adidas has not shared a release date or price at the time of publication.
Young scored 32 points, distributed 10 assists and had 7 rebounds in the victory. The second game of the series will take place on Wednesday, also at Madison Square Garden. It will air on TNT at 7:30 p.m. ET.
In December 2020, Adidas revealed on social media that the Atlanta Hawks goalie would soon be getting his very first signature shoe, dubbed Trae Young 1, in 2021. At the time, the brand did not provide further details. To make the announcement, Adidas shared an image of Young via his Adidas Basketball account on Twitter with a message in handwritten font that read, “Always remember when they doubted you.” It was captioned: “Trae Young 1. Coming in 2021. “
Young will join an already loaded roster of Adidas basketball athletes with signature shoes, including Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers, James Harden of the Houston Rockets and Donovan Mitchell of the Utah Jazz.
