your question regarding: adidas originals Sobakov ftwr white/crystal white/crystal white
Adidas is one of the world`s leading manufacturers of sports equipment and is deeply rooted within the game of basketball. The brand with the three stripes changed the world of basketball sneakers drastically in the early 70s. Players of the NBA wore Converse All Stars also known as „Chucks“ up until this point, but the shoes could barely meet athlete`s requirements anymore. With the „Superstar“, Adidas released a shoe that would prove groundbreaking and revolutionary for the future of the sneaker game.
The low top „Superstar“ was built from the „Supergrip“ and was the first basketball sneaker completely made of genuine leather. This, as well as the rubber shell toe piece (hence the nickname „shell toes) made the shoe more resistant and due to the herringbone-system integrated in the sole very grippy. By the middle of the 70s about 75 percent of the league`s players wore „Superstars“ and in 1976 none other than Kareem Abdul-Jabbar signed a contract with Adidas. Abdul-Jabbar, the all time leader in points made the brand and the „Superstars“ as famous as his signature move – the „sky hook“. From there until the mid-80s Adidas ruled the NBA – it was „all adidas everything“!
From Superstars and Attitude to KB8
In the 80s Adidas stayed with the concept of creating shoes for centers. By the middle of the decade New York Knicks legend Patrick Ewing was sporting his own signature sneaker – the „Attitude“. Following in his footsteps was defensive monster Dikembe Mutombo in the early 90s, with his very own „Mutombo“. They would end the series of Centers when they signed a rookie named Kobe Bryant in 1996. Kobe and his „KB8“ gave Adidas a major boost in all things basketball until 2002. The german company got its hoops groove back and was able to sign some of the biggest names in the game like Tracy McGrady, Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett.
Today, about 70 players of the NBA rock their Adidas on a nightly basis. Among them are Superstars Derrick Rose, John Wall and Damian Lillard – three explosive and spectacular Point Guards wearing their Adidas signature sneakers. This does not only add true Point Gods to the brands roster, it gives the three stripes a boost in credibility among basketball fans.
