Trae Young is keeping it cool with his on-court footwear.
For last night’s game, the Atlanta Hawk stepped out in Icee-inspired sneakers — a fun play on his nickname, Ice Trae.
The Adidas-sponsored star sported a pair of Next Level kicks — the shoes he’s worn for most of the season — in a red, white and blue colorway, with the words “Ice Trae” emblazoned on the toe.
While Young has worn various Next Level versions throughout the season, this marks the first time he was spotted in completely custom sneakers.
The 20-year-old took the joke to the next level before the game, carrying a cooler with the Ice Trae branding along with several Icees. He didn’t wear the kicks en route to the locker room; instead, he chose gray sneakers to pair with a Hawks-branded long-sleeved shirt and sweats.
Adidas has long been honoring its young athletes as the basketball season nears its end. In 2018, the German sportswear company gave then-rookie Donovan Mitchell some love with custom Spida gear. Mitchell was also offered a signature shoe this year.
Only three more games are left on the schedule for the Hawks. Last night, the team defeated the Philadelphia 76ers, 130-122. Their next matchup is against the Orlando Magic on Friday night.
