A few weeks prior One on One Testers first reported on the brand new adidas Streetball off-court driven silhouette. While we await this anticipated release, new colorways of silhouette have surfaced.
Two new colorways have surfaced in a white build, black to white gradient midsole, while yellow accents finish off the shoe. The other colorway sports a primary black build, black to white gradient midsole, and light blue accents throughout the shoe. For those wondering, no, these are not basketball shoes. As seen, the adidas Originals logo (which hints off-court use) is stamped onto the insole. While these may bring full premium raw materials into play, and modern day cushioning, they are still not aimed to be worn on the hardwood.
The adidas Streetball looks to utilize a modified herringbone outsole, with pods of standard herringbone at the heel and forefoot, while big “tire-like” treads make up the majority of the outsole. A full-length tooling of Lightstrike foam makes up the cushioning, while unique translucent rubber caging wraps up around the foam and part of the upper to stabilize the heel and midfoot laterally.
A mix of different raw material blends for the upper is intact. A panel of likely perforated synthetic leather makes up the forefoot, while a nubuck clip wraps up the forefoot to stabilize the Lightstrike foam. Additional paneling of suede can be seen at the heel and eye stay area, while a ripstop material makes up the majority of the midfoot. Finishing off the shoe is an internal bootie and very, very puffy 90s tongue.
No word on a release date for these quite yet, but keep it locked here for updates on the upcoming adidas Streetball. Let us know your thoughts on these in the comments.
UPDATE (07/02/2019): The adidas Streetball has officially arrived on adidas Japan. Stay tuned for updates on a confirmed stateside release.
