adidas adiPure “Sun” All Star Weekend

words_Nick Engvall

Yellow has been a popular color choice across all brands for basketball shoes this year, as we saw with the upcoming adiZero Rose All Star. The adidas adiPure, which we got a sneak peek of last month, will continue that trend during the 2011 NBA All Star Weekend festivities on Friday and Saturday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Don’t let the blinding “Sun” colorway fool you though, there is much more to the adiPure than just a bright colorway and sleek design.

Continuing the lightweight approach of previous adidas Basketball shoes with the single layer synthetic Sprint Skin material is a key part of the adidas adiPure. On the adiPure, adidas’ PureMotion Pods on the outsole seem to have a more recognizable visual tie to the unforgettable Feet You Wear technology from the late nineties. Full-length cushioning is provided by adidas’ adiPrene system, which is designed for high-impact shock absorption. Traction is handled by the adidas Cilia Traction system, which has been complimented for its grip in our recent Performance Reviews. The resulting combination is yet another solid release to look forward to from adidas Basketball.

The adidas adiPure “Sun” All Star colorway will be available in limited quantities at Eastbay February 4th.

    Still don’t understand why this yellow is an “all-star” colorway when the West jerseys are red/black and the East Jerseys are blue/black

  • jordan junky:

    sun is hot a gotta have

  • adiCT:

    wowowowowow!!!! Full Lenght adiPRENE??? is this a first? loving the FLEXSKIN tech!!! Now I’m torn between Rose 1.5, this, and the rumored Crazy 8.

  • Full Length adiprene+ ?!? FINALLY
    I got a good feeling about this shoe!

  • King Me:

    I don’t know how I feel about basketball players adopting the mentality of soccer that your shoes don’t have to match your uniform…

  • teemasuoka:

    Forget the all-star game if Monta Ellis, the 2nd leading scorer on the west coast, isn’t going to even be considered. smh…

  • VoodooChild:

    I got these this past Tuesday, they are rediculously comfortable. They have SprintSkin instead of FlexSkin too.

  • Conor:

    Monta Ellis shoots more than anyone. He better have huge scoring numbers.

  • Fan8:

    I hope Eric Gordon is wearing these All Star weekend in LA!

  • Rodney:

    @jr_lyon: yellow is D-Rose’s high school colour….

    plus, yellow kicks on court stand out way more than the usual black / whites…..yellow wheels on court will be the schiznit….

  • QAEv:

    these look horrible but they must be good on the court.

  • Conor Miller:

    What other yellow basketball shoes are there besides these, the Rose’s, and the Hyperfuses? That would be awesome if anyone could tell me. I’ve been looking EVERYWHERE for these.
