Adidas Jumps Into All-Star Weekend

2009′s official gear is in.

adidas Bounce Commandersby Chris O’Leary

For those of you keeping track, All-Star countdown is at 17 days. As the big day gets closer, the word on sneakers is picking up. I got some info this morning on what adidas will have their top dogs decked out in for Phoenix.

Kevin Garnett, Tim Duncan and Dwight Howard will all wear custom adidas Team Signature Bounce Commanders in their respective conference colors. Tracy McGrady, Chauncey Billups and Derrick Rose will all wear the Team Signature Lightning Creators in their respective colors as well.

The West players will wear a desert red and gold sneaker, while he East’s finest will rock a silver and sunset blue colorway.

All-Star CapWe’ve also got some info from the stripes on the apparel side of things.

The warm-up jackets that the players will wear are pictured here, as well as hoodies and a cap. Myself, I’m a fan of the East jacket, neutral on the hoodies and I’d pass on the lid (white hats always used to get dirty way too fast on me for my liking).

No player exclusives with this stuff either, meaning all of it will be available in stores. The kicks are selling at $110 with the jacket going for $125 and the hoodie for $90. The cap, should you decide you like it, has a tag of $24.

    Whatever happened to their “Home-cooked” collection. The New Orleans stuff they put out last year was much better.

    Adidas fell off.

    The gold shoes are fugly.

  • that dude

    They look pretty similar to the last couple of years for the most part…

    @Scott: TMac could wear the shoes to the game. He could wear them in the front row, he could wear them in the tunnel of the arena, he could wear them when a sideline reporter asks him about how he thinks his season is going. That’s all I’m saying.

    The East jacket is NICE, but the all-white West one would get dirty to easily…

  • thesubwayconnection

    Eh. The Bounce Commanders are alright. Nothing else impresses me.

    The kicks aren’t my style personally, but they do look kind of awesome.

    i bet if it had a jumpman logo you would sell your first born for it…get the hell outta here

    The silver/blue (East)Addidas are pretty nice. But the gold and red joints are fugly.

    the shoes look like they got sh!tted on by the tacky fairy.

  • Blinguo

    They tried to recreate/copy/bite off Silver/Gold Flightposite (including blingtacular above $100 prices) and or those scene kids “skate”/Club/shoes with the foil overlays/painted (gold/silver)leather. No go. Chauncey should just wear his signaturemodel from a few years back with the 3 stripes classically lined up on the side, with that baller Formotion tech(looked like Shox) that helps prevent ankle rolls(the opposite of Shox), word to Kinsey(CLE) last night.

  • Blinguo

    Also, DWade still wearing a couple year old shoes in games this year rather than the horrendous Wade 4, wonder what his sleds are going to be. Playoff Wade 1′s? Olympic Wade 1? All-Star “Triangle shoe” 3?

  • Cizzo

    Bounce Tech is cutting edge!!!!!!
