adidas LVL3 Event Recap ft. James Harden, D Rose, D Lillard, and Andrew Wiggins

adidas Basketball just had its successful LVL3 event and WearTesters was fortunate to have been invited to join the festivities.

It was one of the coolest events I’ve attended because adidas and the athletes don’t make you feel like you’re media, you almost feel like family. Never have I ever just hung out with NBA players — until this event, that is.

Damian Lillard and Derrick Rose are two of the most down to earth players I’ve ever met besides for Stephen Curry. Andrew Wiggins is right up there as well. Unfortunately, we don’t get many Minnesota games televised here in the Bay Area so I was at a loss in terms of speaking with him — I don’t really know much about him other than he was sent to the Timberwolves to make room for LeBron.

James Harden was great as well. He’s pretty intelligent when it comes to footwear and we previewed his upcoming signature model too. If you wanted a video of me just talking about what I saw then you can let me know in the comment section and I’ll take care of it.

I had a great time andreceived some fantastic kicks. We hope you enjoy the content!


  1. Nightwing that would be great if you made that video you mentioned! Did you get J Harden signature to review? Can you say something about the shoe?

  2. You get a chance to try drose 7 on? I have the 6, the 7 looks even more of the perfect shoe for me.

    1. I just picked up the Rose 7. The forefoot is definetly a little more firm than last year. I like that as a quick guard but some will still prefer last years. If you have a narrow foot, I recommend going a half size down. The fit is nice overall if you get the right size. Materials feel great as well. It definetly feels a lot less bulky.

        1. My local Footlocker in Syracuse, NY put them out early. I’m pretty sure it was a mistake on their part but I was able to purchase.

          1. What colorway did you get?

            It’s like 3 weeks before it’s release date,

            Now that’s early.

  3. I’d love to see a first impression of the Crazy Explosive and how the sizing on that shoe is, thanks in advance Chris.

  4. NW this vlog was dope. That hotel was really nice. You got to talk with Rose, and Harden. Can’t wait for the performance reviews on the new Rose 7/ Crazy Explosive’s.

  5. Wow that’s just AWESOME!!!!!

    Nightwing that’s just amazing, getting to experience something like that, it’s like a small all-star event but getting really up close to really good Basketball Players,

    I feel kinda envious of your work,

    Plus that Hotel Room is like Top of the Class.


  6. We as a site have been EXTREMELY lucky that most brands are inviting us to events now. The sign of respect that shows for us as reviewers can’t be beat, from all star events to the KD Austin unveil to this last week. All we can do is keep growing, and always tell it like it is.

    1. More power to you guys!!

      You guys get to play Basketball and Work at the same time, and get some exclusive stuff and get invited to amazing events, now that’s just AWESOME!!!!!

      Reviews you can trust = Weartesters

  7. Would love a video of you talking about what you saw at the event! Great work NW and all of the WearTesters staff!

  8. I must say, it’s a testament to you guys that you get invited to these events. It shows why Weartesters is a trusted brand.

    That being said, I have an important question: Will JLin get a Crazy Light Boost 2016 PE in Brooklyn Nets colorways? I’m going to Germany in a few months and those would be the first things I would be looking for.

  9. I agree with the others above. A video detailing what you saw for Harden’s signature would be super great.

    1. We can’t put that out there yet – we do and it’s the LAST time we get that kind of info.

  10. What an honest answer from Rose. That was pretty cool. Also, what was the second song? That beat was dope.

  11. Would also like to know what’s up with the Lillard 3. Haven’t played in the first two so can’t comment on performance, but strictly from an aesthetic viewpoint I think they’re two of the sharpest looking shoes to come out in a long time.
