Ahead of this weekend’s Chinese New Year celebration, adidas Basketball will be launching its very own “Year of the Snake” footwear collection. Much like the aforementioned “2013 NBA All-Star Game” collection, the YOTS Pack will include the adiZero Crazy Light 2. In shades of gold and turquoise, references to the Water Snake, the elemental which coincides with this year’s Chinese Zodiac, the adiZero Crazy Light 2 also features a “scaled” upper like that on a snakeskin. With the same turquoise and gold accents, Derrick Rose‘s newest signature adidas D Rose 3.5 includes a SPRINTWEB upper and SPRINTFRAME for support, cushioning, and lightweight performance. Finally, the “workhorse” of the adidas Basketball product line, the adidas TMAC-1. The signature footwear for Tracy McGrady, the two-time NBA scoring champion and seven-time NBA All-Star, the TMAC-1 also gone through the reptilian conversion of gold and turquoise with snakeskin appliquĂ©. All the more fitting since McGrady now is on the player roster of Chinese Basketball Association‘s Qingdao Eagles.
All three editions will be available this week through a adidas Basketball retailer near you, adidas flagship stores, and its official online shop.
