1. Terry Fox Ultra Boost
This one is the most important story of the week. Even though 90% of the world doesn’t know who Terry Fox is they should. Adidas is launching a Terry Fox inspired Ultra Boost with all proceeds going towards cancer research. The colourway is inspired by the shoes Terry Fox wore on his cross country run 40 years ago. The silhouette itself is different from Terry’s original shoes but rather it’s what Adidas Canada believes Terry would have worn if he were to embark in the current day and age. The navy blue along with the maple leaf accented tongue is toned down and super clean, a shoes anyone can wear casually. If you have a soul you should be getting on Adidas Canada’s website December 8th.
2. Kawhi’s Newest Colourway
New Balance is dropping a new winter inspired Colourway of Kawhis self titled signature shoe. The colourway keeps with the cartoon inspired aesthetic, much like New Balances previous iterations of the “KAWHI”. The tongue has an image of a frozen basketball being grasped by what looks to be the claw of an abominable snow man which seems to be a winter inspired call back to Kawhi’s nickname “the claw”. The icey cool blue colour of the upper and outsole makes this a big time drip for any hoopers in your life for Christmas.
