Superman’s new footwear, in photos.
Yesterday we brought you Dwight Howard’s video review of his new second-half sneaker for ’11-12—the adidas adiPower Howard 2. Now, you can check out all the official imagery of the fresh kicks straight from adidas. Despite the trade rumors swirling, Howard is still in Orlando, making for a clean blue-black-white colorway pattern of the DH signatures, which are built “with the power and explosiveness to match Dwight’s game,” per the shoe’s official press release. More, from our friends at adidas:
The shoe features a signature shattered glass graphic throughout the shoe as a nod to Dwight’s power and history of bringing down backboards. It also features Dwight’s signature on the heel, uniform number on the medial side and a Superman inspired tongue featuring his “dh” logo. Three-stripes oversized branding is a nod to Dwight’s larger than life personality. The upper features molded stripes and 3D TPU cage for lockdown and support. The shoe features Cilia Traction System for ultimate grip and a tar pattern on the outsole represents Dwight’s team and off-court persona.
The adiPower Howard 2 will be available starting Thursday at Foot Locker, Eastbay and shopadidas.com for $100 retail. Be sure to hit the adidas Basketball Facebook page for exclusive videos, pictures, reviews and more content.
