Following a reveal of the two “Icee” colorways, Trae Young and adidas officially announce the release of the Atlanta Hawks guard’s first signature shoe, the adidas Trae Young 1.

Pulling inspiration from the laceless N3XT L3V3L silhouette worn by Trae in his first NBA season, the Trae Young 1 has a half-bootie construction paired with laces for extra support – leveraging BOOST cushioning in the heel for comfort, a LIGHTSTRIKE midsole for lightweight responsiveness, and a laceless forefoot for superior lockdown.

“adidas and I worked very closely on my first signature shoe and I’m hyped to finally let fans get a hold of them. When you wear these, you’re repping that ice cold mentality and the entire city of Atlanta,” says Trae Young. “This moment is really special as it’s a reminder to the next generation of hoopers that through hard work and focus you can achieve your dreams. Trae Young 1 is a symbol of that for me.”

The Trae Young 1 will makes its debut on October 1st with two ICEE colorways and an apparel collection that includes a quarter zip pull-over ($80 USD), pants ($70 USD), and shorts ($45 USD). Two more colorways drop on November 5th, made in collaboration with So So Def, the iconic Atlanta-based R&B and hip-hop record label founded by Jermaine Dupri. A fifth colorway, dubbed “Peachtree,” launches on November 19th.

adidas Trae Young 1 “ICEE”
Color: Bahia Light Blue/Vivid Red/Cloud White
Style Code: H68997
Release Date: October 1, 2021
Price: $140 USD

Trae’s Inspiration: “The first colorway in the collection is my official collaboration with ICEE, one of my favorite drinks growing up. I remember as a kid every day after school we would pick one up on the way home or after practice.”

adidas Trae Young 1 “ICEE Cotton Candy”
Color: Clear Pink/Clear Pink/Cloud White
Style Code: H68998
Release Date: October 1, 2021
Price: $140 USD

Trae’s Inspiration: “Another colorway drop from the ICEE collab is Cotton Candy. One of my favorite sweets growing up was cotton candy. I stayed with the cotton candy ICEE in my cup. The color fade from blue to pink on the upper is so hard and the insoles themselves come with the opposite color fades as well.”

adidas Trae Young 1 “So So Def”
Color: Black/White
Style Code: H68999
Release Date: November 5, 2021
Price: $140 USD

Trae’s Inspiration: “A part of my official collaboration with SO SO DEF, this colorway celebrates one of the most iconic record labels to ever come out of Atlanta. SO SO DEF runs deep in the culture of southern hip-hop and we wanted to pay our respects to Jermaine Dupri for the groundwork he laid in the city to be what it is in the music scene today.”

adidas Trae Young 1 “So So Def ATL”
Style Code: H69000
Release Date: November 5, 2021
Price: $140 USD

Trae’s Inspiration: “This colorway is a shoutout and reference to a famous billboard in Atlanta that lets every passerby know who ran the town. On this one, the SO SO DEF logo is printed on the heel and in the sockliner with the exact phrase written on the billboard. Crazy ‘pop’ colors with the yellow and red throughout.”

adidas Trae Young 1 “Peachtree”
Release Date: November 19, 2021
Price: $130 USD

Trae’s Inspiration: “Everybody in Atlanta knows Peachtree and West Peachtree. The two streets run parallel through the heart of the city and if you know, you know. This colorway has the all-over peach colored upper with the hints of green to represent the stem. It’s got the ‘Georgia Peach’ printed on the sockliner with the street signs too, so this colorway is really reppin’ the city for sure.”
