About the adiZero Ghost:
The adiZero Ghost uses adidas technology to create a sleek, lightweight shoe that makes players faster on the court. SPRINTWEB, a lightweight web layout incorporated into the upper, reduces weight and the TPU shank in the heel provides vertical and horizontal support for cutting and accelerating. The adiZero Ghost is available now in six colors for MSRP $90 exclusively at Dick’s Sporting Goods and online at

The Ghost comes a year after addias dropped the adiZero Infiltrate, which Smith wore last season, and days after company-mate DRose released his latest signature shoe.
