adidas today unveiled the J Wall 1 NYC All-Star edition shoe for Washington Wizards point guard John Wall to wear during his second consecutive NBA All-Star Game appearance and first-ever starting nod.
The versatile point guard’s impressive play, improved defense and league leading 10 assists per game have led Washington to the Eastern Conference’s second best record.
Designed in tandem with the 2015 NBA All-Star uniforms, the adidas NYC All-Star footwear collection is inspired by the attitude and culture of New York City basketball, music and fashion. Each shoe will feature a clean, premium aesthetic in an iconic white, black and gold color scheme. The white uppers are highlighted by subtle snakeskin textures, black accents and hits of metallic gold.
The J Wall 1 features a double layered white mesh upper for increased comfort and breathability. White leather snakeskin texture is featured around the laces, top of the tongue and ankle. Black accents include the full-length adiprene+ midsole, metallic toe cap, FITFRAME and three-stripes. The J Wall 1 NYC All-Star is finished with metallic gold J Wall logos on the tongue and lateral side.
