As the 2010-2011 NBA season tips off next month, we’re bound to see a string of new releases from adidas Originals honoring some of the teams in the league. The brand with three stripes is the official sponsor of the NBA and is the only footwear brand which has the licensing rights to use the team logo’s on their products. Before they get into any team-inspired releases though, adidas Originals presents us with a Top Ten Hi which pays tribute to the NBA as a whole. In a nice mix of Blue, White and Black, the shoes feature a textured leather base, full-grain leather stripes and suede detailing on the midfoot and around the toe and ankle. The standard “Top Ten” tongue tag has been redesigned and made a little larger to accommodate the NBA logo in addition to adidas’ branding.
They’re able now at select adidas Originals distributors, including the Caliroots owned Six Feet Down sneaker boutique in Sweden.
