We all have heroes among us.
It came as no surprise when Avengers: Endgame broke box office records with its one billion dollars global debut. Over the past ten years, the world became part of the Marvel heroes’ journey.
In celebration of the film’s success, Adidas Basketball launched five new footwear designs in a limited edition collection of shoes that recognize the ‘Heroes Among Us.’
Inspired by the superheroes of the Marvel cinematic universe, who came to life in the comics and in the big screen, Adidas has personified them in the form of some iconic basketball athletes who’ve become personal heroes of their fans around the world.
The new Adidas x Marvel ‘Heroes Among Us’ footwear collection iconizes James Harden as Iron Man (Harden Vol 3), Damian Lillard as Black Panther (Dame 5), John Wall as Captain America (N3XT L3V3L), Tracy McGrady as Nick Fury (TMAC 1), and Candace Parker as Captain Marvel (Pro Vision).
The collaboration is in pursuit of inspiring all the athletes and their fans on and off the court. Just as how fictional superhero characters wear costumes and empower people, athletes in their jersey uniform can motivate their supporters, too, with their grit and determination in the games.
Each pair in the collection reflects the power, skill, and unique ability of the NBA athlete and Marvel superhero it represents.
***Note that only Dame 5 (Php6,500) and N3XT L3V3L (Php9,000) will be available in the Philippines.***
Meanwhile, Adidas Originals offers a redesigned Nite Jogger model, updating its already aesthetically pleasing and iconic 70’s silhouette. Tagging itself as a streetstyle essential, the modernized design has been engineered for the duality of both day and night, with distinct new colorways such as tonal greys, pastel greens, and orange hits.
Adidas retains the original materials it’s been known for: lightweight nylon ripstop, soft mesh knit, and suede overlays that offer advanced adaptability for the everyday grind. It’s rounded off with a Boost midsole and durable rubber outsole.
With Creators of the Night behind its reinterpretation, the Nite Jogger boasts one look in the light, and another in darkness—all in the pursuit of lighting the way for an evolution of people’s expression and vision through the dark.
The new Nite Jogger has been made available in stores globally since April 11, 2019.
