Instead, it was one of designer Alexander Wang’s newest sneaker collaborations with Adidas Originals, the AW Bball. The shoes feature a basketball-inspired upper that mixes materials such as suede and leather with a socklike ankle collar. At the bottom, they’re cushioned by a chunky Boost midsole and include gum-rubber details on the outsole.
The Alexander Wang x Adidas AW Bball shoes debuted April 1 in the black style pictured here and a white-based look. Both colors sold out quickly at most retailers but can now be found on sites like eBay.
