James Hardens adidas Crazylight Boost 2.5 From All Star Weekend Will Be Releasing
The sneaker that James Harden wore for the 3-Point Contest during NBA All Star Weekend in Toronto will be getting a retail release.
This new Cargo edition of the adidas Crazylight Boost 2.5 is inspired by Harden’s off-court style and features an Olive upper made out of suede. Silver accents also make an appearance along with Harden’s logo on the tongue and a white BOOST midsole.
You’ll be able to purchase the adidas Crazylight Boost 2.5 Cargo edition at adidas.com, Foot Locker and Eastbay beginning on March 10 for a retail price of $130.
It’s cool to see adidas give a lifestyle look to one of their newest popular basketball sneakers. I like the olive upper but i’m not too sure about going with suede as the material of choice.
Sneakers In 4K: adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Pirate Black
The rise in popularity of Yohji Yamamoto’s adidas Y-3 imprint has led to adidas Originals imitating some of the sleeker designs to appease those who wouldn’t readily shell out the usual $300-$400 for a Y-3 pair. That thought process has been readily apparent with the Tubular and Boost series and now another silhouette is benefiting from the overhaul: the adidas Superstar. Let’s be clear that this isn’t by any means a new model. In fact, a few years back the three stripes released this women’s exclusive adidas Superstar Strap featuring crisscrossing neoprene straps and a slip-on construction similar to the Qasa series. It didn’t do all that well back then, as it came and went in a flash and was forgotten quickly. Now adidas is hoping the changing atmosphere and how we look at lifestyle sneakers will also change how this pair is recieved. Two simple colorways are available for purchase in a subtle black and white exclusive to a women’s size run once again. Check out more photos below and know that international retailers like Titolo have started stocking this pair.
adidas Just Won Legal Battle Of Their Three Parallel Stripes Branding
Ever since I was a kid, I would see plenty of shoes rocking the stripes-on-the-side look. Only problem is, not all the shoes rocking the stripes were adidas. Many brands have decided to mimic the adidas Three Stripe look without their proper consent. adidas has not taken than lightly and it appears as if they finally took legal action to stop the wrongdoing.
It has been reported that the Court of Justice of the Europen Union has ruled that adidas can now oppose the trademark registration of parallel stripes on the side of sport-related sneakers designed by other brands. One reason adidas has decided to move forward with this is because back in 2009 there was a Belgian company called Shoe Branding Europe that filed an application to register as a trademark the two forward slashes on the side of their shoes. Although we all know adidas uses three stripes, the similarities are too similar between the two that it’s easy to mistake the two. This caused adidas to oppose the registration, but surprisingly it was dismissed on the basis that the two designs were “significantly” different. Fast-forward to a few years later and in May of 2015 the General Court has now sided with adidas’s argument now saying that the marks were not different enough being that the stripes were parallel, had the same distance between each other and shared the same width, colors and contrasting base color. Essentially it was the same look except for the lack of the extra stripe.
This latest decision has the Court of Justice uphold the General Court’s stance. A definite win for adidas.
adidas To Release Crazylight Boost 2.5 Cargo Worn By James Harden During All-Star Weekend
James Harden is the personification of an original creator on the basketball court. He creates his own shots, is one of the most creative scorers in the NBA, and does so in style whether it be because of his infamous beard or his adidas Crazylight Boost 2.5 PEs. Harden didn’t win this year’s NBA 3-Point Contest at All-Star Weekend, but he did win sneakerheads’ affections for his lifestyle-inclined Crazylight Boost 2.5 “Cargo”. The monochromatic olive and khaki green pair complete with a bolstered suede construction managed to capture his eclectic off-court style and will now be releasing at retailers on March 10th for $130 USD. Check out some detailed shots of the latest and greatest James Harden shoes below and let us know if you plan on picking up a pair by taking your thoughts to the comments section.
Patriotic Shades For The adidas Originals Superstar Adicolor
Simply a timeless style, the adidas Originals Superstar is offered in a trio of tonal finishes for its latest iteration this season.
Defined by its iconic shelltoe, the popular low-top sneaker is offered in red, white and blue colorways. Comprised of premium leather, miniature perforations are evident across its clean profile to allow superb breathability throughout its composition.
Further detailed with matching three-stripe branding on the side panels and suede overlays on the heel tab, the sneakers are finished off with tonal branding on the tongue and flat laces.
You can purchase your favorite pair at select adidas retailers now for $90 each.
Following a detailed overview of the men’s pair, new images of the women’s Wood Wood x adidas Ultra Boost are now provided, as the silhouette is a complete counterpart of the aforementioned pair.
Flaunting a pristine profile overall, the sneaker’s breathable primeknit upper is rendered in white, while its recognizable TPU cage lacing component has been replaced with a midfoot strap instead. Bearing a perforated slit design on the component to coordinate with the sneaker’s lightweight build, the sneaker is essentially a slip-on with this refined finish.
Further detailed with a matching heel unit for more reinforcement, the heavenly hue is continued towards its midsole unit as well. Subtle black accents on the tongue label and outsole provide a sense of contrast, as additional pops of red and blue are seen on the pull tabs and insoles.
You can purchase a pair at select adidas retailers now for a retail price tag of $180
Following its initial look, a closer view at the men’s Wood Wood x adidas Ultra Boost is provided, as the sneaker essentially flaunts a clean profile.
Sporting a versatile colorway overall, black covers its primeknit upper which bears perforations throughout to allow breathability as well as ensuring a lightweight feel throughout daily wear. Unlike its traditional TPU cage lacing system, this variation’s three-stripe branding is styled individually and reinforced with canvas overlays. This refined component essentially holds the two-tone rope-style laces, while also allowing a more freedom of movement.
All resting atop a clean white midsole unit, additional white accents are applied on the heel tab and tongue label. Furthermore, the outsole is shaded in black to perfectly coordinate with its predominant colorway. Finishing touches include co-branding on the insoles and tongue. In addition, the sneaker’s monochromatic palette is subtly contrasted by touches of red and blue, which is seen on the model’s rear pull tabs. Also, it can be seen on the insoles via its respective logos.
Find a pair at select adidas retailers now for $180.
The latest variation of the popular adidas Ultra Boost is treated in an exclusive women’s colorway of Shot Pink this season.
Defined by its breathable primeknit upper, this woven component bears navy as its predominant tone, while the punctuating hue is seen on the toe box alongside hits of cream, in addition to gracing the laces and tpu heel tab that reinforces the sneaker’s overall construction.
Further detailed with the model’s caged lacing system in contrasting black, the model is finished off with a clean white midsole unit and black outsole. You can find a pair at select adidas retailers now for $180.
Whether or not you like the look of the gradient upper on some of the Ultra Boost models, there’s no denying that this new look makes the shoe more versatile when it comes to what you can do with it. Take for example the adidas Ultra Boost Grape, making good use of the gradient design on the Primeknit upper, this is definitely one of the cleanest colorways I’ve see on the shoe.
This Grape colorway makes good use of the gradient design as it utilizes it to place similar colors such as purple, turquoise and black to create a very harmonious feel on the shoe. The rest of the Primeknit upper appears to follow suit as the same colors are knitted together to create a really dope look. A white Boost midoles, black rubbed outsole, black Three Stripes branding and the two-toned heel cage complete the look of the shoe. Stay tuned to find out when these will release.
adidas Brightens Up The Ultra Boost With Two Colorful Releases
Starting out in mostly neutral looks, adidas continues to add more and more color to the Ultra Boost as the popular running model’s second year begins. The Three Stripes provides an even bigger blast of color to the Ultra Boost this Spring, continuing the “wavy” pattern on the Primeknit upper but adding an even larger assortment of hues this time around. Here we see one colorway each for men (grey/black) and women (navy/pink), both sporting a solid base with a colorful splash at the toes. The two colorful new Ultra Boosts are arriving now overseas, so expect them soon at adidas running retailers in the US.
The adidas Originals ZX Flux Night Navy Gets Rid Of Some Branding
You might notice something a little different on this version of the adidas ZX Flux. Look closer and I’m sure you will see what is missing. In an attempt to differentiate itself from past offerings, the adidas Originals ZX Flux Night Navy has decided to removed the traditional Three Stripe branding from its side panels to create a more streamlined look.
The ZX Flux comes dressed in a navy blue mesh upper covered in white stitching seen all over the shoe. The rear side of the shoe comes with a black heel counter to create some minimal contrast on the upper. Lastly, tonal laces, a white sole unit and a red lace dubrae complete the look of the shoe. Available now at select retailers, pick up your pair today for $120.
The shape and build of the shoe is still there, but when you take a closer look at the shoe the removal of the Three Stripes is definitely a big change. I like it, as it keeps the silhouette looking different and fresh.
The Reebok Question Unworn Is Allen Iverson’s Greatest “What If?” Sneaker
Ever since the adidas Ultra Boost released we’ve been patiently waiting to get a mulitcolored version of it. More than one year later, and adidas has yet to satisfy our cravings. There is a new colorway of the shoe though. This new version does use a multitude of colors, but it’s not exactly what we were hoping for.
The Ultra Boost starts off with a grey Primeknit upper which is the accompanied by the three different colors hues placed on the upper of the shoe. The rainbow-like colors appear on the toebox of the shoe in a gradient-like motif. The heel cage and Three Stripe come in black, the lining comes in blue, and the Boost midsole keeps it original by coming in white. No U.S. release date on these yet, but you can try to pick up a pair internationally. Hot or not? Sound off in the comments below.
The adidas ZX Flux ADV is one of the newer hybrid releases that originally derived from the ZX Flux line. Surprisingly, out of all the past colorways that have already dropped, not one of them haa come in an all-black look, until today. Let’s take a look at the adidas ZX Flux ADV Black.
Just like you’d expect, the shoe comes in an all-black look that includes the lining, branding, sole unit and laces. The only thing that does not come in a black colorway happens to be the clear heel cage of the shoe, but being that’s it’s clear and you see right through it, that too appears to come in black. The mesh-constructed sneaker is said to now be arriving at select retailers for $110. Is this a cop or drop? Sound off in the comments below.
Did Kanye West Just Promise Free adidas Yeezys For His Fans
The ever-quotable Kanye West is back on Twitter firing away, and amidst all the opining was an interesting message that should have sneakerhead’s interests piqued. He claims to have spoken to adidas about “hooking y’all up with free Yeezys and adidas”, which can’t really be taken literally because the logistics of it sound…impossible, and shoe fiends as well as Kanye followers across the globe are always at the edge of the seat waiting for info on the next retail drop, meaning a giveaway could cause pandemonium, to put it lightly. This statement is likely similar to his “anyone who wants Yeezys will get them” statement from last year, so for now, we’ll just interpret this tweet as an echoing of that first claim. That said, if Kanye and adidas were to plan some sort of “free Yeezy” event, how should it go down? Will those who purchased a Tidal subscription get rewarded? Will there be another guessing game on Twitter? Let’s hear your thoughts.
The sneaker is composed of a Black Primeknit upper with red stitched detailing on the heel tab. The midsole has been blacked out and features adidas’ BOOST technology to offer a smooth and comfortable ride.
The Pirate Black colorway of the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 saw a restock on February 19, 2016. Despite word of increased production numbers, the shoe still sold out immediately, further soldifying Kanye West’s status as one of the big names in the sneaker world.

Andres Carrillo, News: Many people missed out on the first release of the Pirate Black colorway but I’m not sure how happy Yeezy fans are to see the same exact colorway release again. Regardless, they’re still gonna sell out instantly.
