adidas today unveiled the Aurora Borealis Triple White Collection, inspired by Toronto’s cool, winter climate and the Northern Lights that paint the sky in upper parts of Canada. The limited all-white renditions of the D Lillard 2 and T-MAC 3 will join the Aurora Borealis collection, including the James Harden PE announced yesterday. All three models appear triple-white only to reveal a Northern Lights glow under the night sky.
D Lillard 2
The latest take on the D Lillard 2 features all-white tooling, a Primeknit upper and Boost cushioning in the heel. Pairing Toronto’s snow covered winter with the array of colors observed in the Northern Lights, Dame’s Triple White edition also incorporates glow in the dark design elements with blue hits on the heel and outsole that meet a gradient green fade along the upper.
Celebrating Tracy McGrady’s tenure with the Toronto Raptors from 1997-2000 – where the rising star helped guide the franchise to its first playoff berth in ’00 and soared in one of the league’s most memorable NBA All-Star Slam Dunk Contests – adidas delivers two editions of the classic T-MAC 3.
The T-MAC 3 was made most famous when McGrady himself wore two different colors – red and blue – at the 2004 All-Star game in Los Angeles. Calling on the historic moment, each silhouette features a glow-in-the dark upper and either blue or green outsoles that hint at the shoes’ individual glow. Embracing the city’s winter fashion and style, the pairs are designed with a leather upper and faux fur accents.
The D Lillard 2 ($150) and each T-MAC 3 ($150) drop Thursday, February 11 on adidas.com, Foot Locker and Eastbay.
