Last year, adidas announced that Trae Young would become the last basketball player under his umbrella to receive a signature sneaker. As details leaked in the months that followed – with Young even making his debut in a Trae Young 1 colourway – adidas revealed on Friday that the Atlanta Hawks star’s full line of sneakers and apparel will be released on the 1st. October, his sneakers receiving five. different colors.
The main look on the sneakers is the Trae Young 1 ICEE, which the All-Star goalie has worn in the past and showed off on the recent takeover of SLAM Kicks. Two of the other colourways are ICEE Cotton Candy and Peachtree, while the remaining pair is a collaboration with Jermaine Dupri’s label, SO SO DEF and SO SO DEF ATL.
Beyond the sneakers, adidas will offer a clothing line to celebrate the big milestone in Young’s career.
Young and the Hawks enter this season with high expectations following last year’s surprising run to the Eastern Conference Finals. This run was sparked by Young who took his game to a new level as he was the driving force behind the team’s offense throughout the year. Young averaged 25.3 points and 9.4 assists per game last season.
