NBA players James Harden, the newest face of Adidas’ basketball brand, and Derrick Rose are expected to wear the sneakers during their Christmas Day games.
According to the company, the D Rose 6, priced at $140, comes with “a mint-green and crystalized frost print upper, contrasted by an iced green outsole and clean, white details throughout. Designed with rose gold hits at the tongue, faceted eyelets and heel cap, the Christmas Day edition delivers an elegant finish.”
And the Crazy 8 style, retailing for $110, gives a nod to winter’s crisp days by featuring a midsole with matching green and white threads. The Crazy 8 Christmas Day edition also boasts gold detailing, particularly on its zig-zag midsole.
Both shoes hit stores Dec. 18.
It’s been a busy month for Adidas and Harden.
In early December, they jointly debuted “Creators Never Follow” film, which encourages athletes of all stripes to define their own path. The ads are part of a campaign designed to motivate athletes. The spots also include stars Lionel Messi, Gareth Bale, Thomas Müller and NFL players DeMarco Murray, Jimmy Graham and Sammy Watkins.
