adidas has gone the floral route in its latest releases for Portland Trailblazers guard Damian Lillard and Washington Wizards guard John Wall.
The "Florist City" collection is a two shoe pack featuring floral renditions of the adidas Crazy 1 and matching apparel that includes socks that feature famous landmarks in D.C. and Portland. The floral theme is adidas' way of paying tribute to Lillard and Wall's home team's cities and their annual spring celebrations. Portland is famous for its Rose gardens and the annual Rose festival so Lillard's shoe got an all red upper with a tonal all over rose print contrasted with a black outsole and tongue. For those interested in visiting the celebration, the Rose Parade is scheduled this year on April 26, 2014.
Wall, on the other hand, gets an all silver upper featuring the same print utilized on the Lillards. The silver color is representative of the monuments that surround our Nation's capital while the contrasting pink pays tribute to Washington D.C.'s annual Cherry Blossom Festival which starts March 20, 2014, and runs til April 13, 2014.
Both sneakers drop on Wednesday, March 19, 2014 and will retail for $125. Sneakerheads and fans can cop at both adidas' website as well as Compound Gallery where both Wall and Lillard will be making appearances. If you're in the area, don't miss out on a chance to meet two of the NBA's rising stars. Check out the flyer below for more detals.
