adidas Basketball pays homage to Arthur Ashe this BHM
For this year's Black History Month, adidas Basketball honors Arthur Ashe, a pro tennis player who also trail-blazed different movements which tackles different issues. This year's top-3 performance models, namely the Dame 3, D Rose 7, and the Harden Vol. 1 were chosen to represent the collection and while the general color blocking is predominantly black and white (although a multi-colored graphic can be seen on the shoe's inner lining), there are a lot of details placed on different section of the shoe to pay homage to Arthur Ashe. On the left sockliner, AA his initials which could also mean Anti-Apartheid, AIDS Awareness. On the right sockliner, there is 1975 graphic representing his victory on Wimbledon and ranked No. 1 in the world. This is not a PE and you will see adidas' top athletes especially the players who carry these signature models to rock them on court during Black History Month and even us consumers can cop a pair since the BHM is an annual event in the NBA and shoe brands release special colorways to commemorate them. The Dame 3 ($115) D Rose 7 ($140) Harden Vol 1 ($140) will release on Black History Month.
