John Wall Is Going To Wear These adidas J Wall 1 “All-Star” Sneakers During The 2015 NBA All-Star Game
John Wall has been excellent for the Washington Wizards so far during the 2014-15 NBA season. Through the first half of the year, he’s averaging 17.0 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 10.0 assists per game, which has helped the Wizards transform themselves into one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference and, frankly, one of the best teams in the entire NBA. Just a few years removed from being the laughingstock of the league—remember the JaVale McGee years?—the Wizards are now the dark horse pick of many NBA analysts to make a run to the 2015 NBA Finals. And Wall has played a big role in the transformation of the team.
Because of this, Wall was just voted to be a starter during the 2015 NBA All-Star Game in New York City. He will anchor the Eastern Conference team and will likely help decide whether or not they win the game this year. So in honor of his latest accomplishment, adidas just revealed that they will be releasing a special adidas J Wall 1 “All-Star” sneaker that has been designed specifically for Wall to wear during the All-Star Game next month. It features a white base, hits of black and gold, and Wall’s logos on the tongue of the sneaker. It’s a pretty sharp looking shoe and is a nice take on the original J Wall design. You can see some more photos of it here:
The adidas J Wall 1 “All-Star” will be available on February 13 through select adidas retailers. What do you think about the sneaker that adidas created for Wall’s All-Star Game start? Do you think they will help Wall lead the Eastern Conference to a victory, or do you think adidas should have created something a little bit more outlandish for him? Either way, we’re looking forward to seeing Wall suit up for the Eastern Conference and can’t wait to see what he does with the Wizards during the remainder of the 2014-15 NBA season.
