When Dwight Howard took on Nate Robinson in the NBA All-Star Slam Dunk Contest earlier this year it pretty much turned into a Superhero battle. Dwight brought out the Superman in him with by wearing a Superman cape and his special edition adidas TS Bounce Commander ‘Superman’ sneakers. Nate responded by breaking out the Nike Foamposite Lite ‘Kryptonate’, a nod to kryptonite, Superman’s quickness, which proved to be enough to defeat the Man in Steel as Nate ended up taking home the Slam Dunk Contest trophy by the end of the night.
It’s not time for the Slam Dunk festivities just yet but as it appears adidas has created Dwight Howard another pair of Superman themed sneakers, this time on adidas TS Commander LT, Dwight’s latest signature sneaker. Throughout the white leather base there are various laser etched Superman graphics on the toe and lateral side of the upper with Superman’s “S” logo included on the heel in its signature red/yellow color scheme. Both insoles of the sneakers have an enlarged Superman The Man Of Steel logo in black and white with a smaller Superman “S” logo in red/yellow.
At this time it is unclear on whether or not these sneakers will be making a release to the general public. Follow the jump to check out a few more pictures. Via: TSG
