The Adidas AE 1 features a similar structure to many of the other shoes in their basketball collection, namely the James Harden line. The shoes feature a TPU overlay through the upper and has a netted perforation pattern for a futuristic look and breathability. The inner upper is a knit sockliner made to mold perfectly to the wearer's foot and the shoes feature Adidas BOOST cushioning technology for maximum support. Head over to Sneaker News for detailed images.
The AE 1 will initially come in three, Peach State-inspired colorways. The heel of the shoes features a contrasting Adidas logo and Edwards' personal moniker in seen on the top of the tongue. These are going to look great on-court in the upcoming NBA season and it'll be fun to see Anthony Edwards continue to elevate as a player.
While no official release has been announced, expect these to drop in time for the holiday season. What do you think of these, will you be grabbing the new Adidas AE line?
