Adidas Makes NBA All-Star Sneakers for James Harden, Damian Lillard and Derrick Rose

Although some of Adidas’ biggest stars such as Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard and New York Knicks guard Derrick Rose won’t be playing in the 2017 NBA All-Star Game, that didn’t stop the brand from creating special-edition “All-Star” colorways for its signature ballers.

As it did with Houston Rockets guard and Western Conference starter James Harden’s signature Harden Vol. 1 model, Adidas has applied the colorful “All-Star” treatment to Lillard’s Dame 3 sneaker and Rose’s D Rose 7 Primeknit.

Each makeup in this collection uses a consistent palette of gray, orange and purple shades, with some models — such as the Harden Vol. 1 pictured above — opting for more subdued looks.

The “All-Star” Harden Vol. 1 is built with a gray Primeknit upper and finished off with a gray leather toe overlay for protection. Color accents appear in the form of orange laces, a purple liner and a gradient fade outsole that blends both hues.

Despite being snubbed from the All-Star Game for the third consecutive year, Lillard is getting in on the festivities, too, with a special makeup of his Dame 3 signature shoe. Far from subtle, this colorway blends varying shades of gray, black and silver with attention-grabbing dashes of orange and purple throughout.

Sticking with the colorful theme, Rose’s D Rose 7 Primeknit signature shoe has also been spotted in an “All-Star” colorway. There’s even a matching Crazylight Boost Low, although that model is not tied to a specific player.

No release date has been announced for the Adidas “All-Star” collection, but the official adidas.com images seen here often indicate a launch is forthcoming.

The 2017 NBA All-Star Game is set for Feb. 19 in New Orleans and will air on TNT.
