With models like this adidas Marquee Boost Collegiate Navy/ Grey, the brand is making its stance in the game clear. adidas Basketball is getting comfortable in their new hoops identity.
After over a decade of watching Nike zoom past them, the Three Stripes brand is regaining considerable footing in this niche section of footwear. Models such as this Marquee Boost are a big part of that.
Here, we see the combination of modern era utility with some historic aesthetics. adidas sees the design of this shoe as “honoring the Harlem Renaissance.” That distinction is nothing to take lightly as the brand looks to creative roots for inspiration.
Functionally, it’s pretty impressive. A breathable mesh base combines with a padded ankle collar and plenty of Boost in the heel.
