Adidas Jumps Into All-Star Weekend
2009′s official gear is in.
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.
We’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.
