adidas Trae Young 1
The adidas Trae Young 1 is a solid sneaker, especially for a first signature. The combination of Lightstrike and Boost is a hit this time around.
Colorway: Clear Pink/Clear Pink/Core White
Release Date: October 1, 2021
The adidas Trae Young 1 is the first ever signature sneaker for the Atlanta Hawks star. Trae really had his breakout performance in the 2021 playoffs where he led his team into the Eastern Conference Finals. Nobody really expected the Hawks to be there, and yet there they were. The same can be said of this shoe: nobody really expected much from it, but it seems like it will offer great performance. We want to get these potential bad boys on court right away.
The adidas Trae Young 1 has actually made our best adidas basketball shoes list and our best basketball shoes list. Here are the other lists it’s featured on: Best for Wide Feet, Best Low Tops, and Best for Point Guards.
