Adidas have released multiple court-ready basketball sneakers since the 2015-16 NBA season came to an end. Those releases — with a celebrated shoe worn by Damian Lillard last season — received color updates for the brand’s upcoming 2016 Adidas Nations Collection.
This line, according to the brand, takes inspiration from the California coast and is designed for players worldwide that are participating in Adidas Nations, the brand’s renowned U19 international basketball camp that takes place this weekend (July 29 to Aug. 1).
The collection features Adidas’ Crazy Explosive, D Rose 7, Crazylight 2016 and D Lillard 2 silhouettes, which arrive in stores on Saturday.
