Minnesota's Andrew Wiggins is one of the fastest-rising stars in the NBA today and a key cog in the adidas basketball family.
And as the 20-year-old continues to lead the Timberwolves into the future, a couple of colorways of a new basketball shoe draws inspiration from his family history.
Although technically not his signature shoe yet, Wiggins will be the face of the new Crazylight Boost 2.5 with the intitial "Marita" and "North Star" colorway paying homage to his roots and young career with the Wolves.
The Marita colorway is dedicated to his mother, Marita Payne-Wiggins, and her success as an Olympic sprinter who helped Canada win two silver medals in the 4x100 and 4x400-meter relays in the 1984 Summer Games. They feature a silver to red gradient upper, blending Primeknit threads with forefoot mesh to deliver added breathability on the hardwood. Silver accents along the midsole, heel cap, collar lining and laces are paired with a red and white outsole for a true Canadian tribute. Gold hits to the upper’s foil treated seam and AW logo cap off the hometown exclusive.
North Star is inspired by Minnesota's state motto "L'Etoile du Nord or The Star of the North." Designed in team colors, the shoe features a black and blue Primeknit upper with seamless integration of mesh tooling and deep blue accents throughout.
Both colorways will be available on select adidas stores, Titan, Toby's Sports, Planet sports and the NBA Store for php7995.
