Spring’s just around the corner and you know what that means…….floral season is coming back. One of the most popular prints from last year is poking it’s head out again right as the weather is coming around with a little help from adidas and two of their headline endorsers.
adidas unveiled their Floral City Collection, a special collection celebrating two of the NBA’s brightest stars John Wall and Damian Lillard. Included in the collection are socks, hats, sweatshirts and the iconic Crazy 1 shoe, all featuring a floral design reminiscent of the respective cities Wall and Lillard call home, Portland and Washington D.C.
Paying homage to Portland, aka the Rose City named for their famed rose gardens and annual Rose Festival, adidas did up the Lillard’s Crazy 1 with a rose print on the upper and green accents to represent the stem. John Wall’s Crazy 1 is inspired by the annual Cherry Blossom festival in Washington D.C and features the floral print along the sole and laces while contrasted by a grey upper to represent the stone used throughout the Nation’s Capital for all the monuments.
Wall and Lillard will be making a special appearance at the Compound Gallery in downtown Portland March 19 from 7- 9pm, to sign autographs and celebrate the collection with fans who purchase.
There’s been much talk recently about Lillard opting out of his adidas contract, but if they keep dropping releases like this on him, it’s going to be hard to switch over to another brand.
