Remember back in 2008, when Dwight Howard lived up to his Superman moniker, traded his team jersey in and donned a cape and Superman jersey to dunk in the NBA All Star Game? Sure, Shaq might not be down with this nickname, but Howard had since then went on to garner other fearsome nicknames, including the recent “Beast From The East” from adidas‘ “Fast Don’t Lie” campaign, designed to celebrate and promote Howard and Derrick Rose’s new kicks, the adidas TS Beast and adiZero Rose respectively. This season, adidas is releasing a special commemorative Superman Edition of the adidas TS Beast to bring back Howard’s nickname.
The new kicks have been pimped out to include a reptilian leather tongue tag featuring the Superman logo and his jersey number, “12”, and Superman/Orlando Magic blue laces. The body of the shoe is a mix of powder blue and white to keep things rightfully sweet and clean. The outsoles are translucent, and shows off the Superman logo graphics embedded within. These are limited to 650 pairs and are packed in a special Superman box. They are available now at LE2. via: ST
