Since it’s original debut just over a week ago, the adidas D Howard 5 hasn’t been necessarily received well, but of course that won’t stop the Three Stripes from rolling out fresh colorways.
Many people are focused on the look of a sneaker when it’s unveiled, and rightfully so. We tend to agree with the masses, that Dwight’s latest signature leaves much to be desired in the aesthetic department, but they do look like they could hold up their end of the deal performance wise, especially for a big man. The adidas D Howard 5 was designed around his powerful game type, and was built to withstand the rigors playing by utilizing a modified SprintFrame along with a updated herringbone traction. This colorway comes in multiple blue tones with with pink laces and lime green accents on the heel and forefoot.
If adidas is trying to change the game and have a successful line of sneakers for a big man, some design changes may be needed, but we can’t knock them til we lace them up. No official word on a release date, but keep it locked for all future information and details about the adidas D Howard 5 as they emerge.
