Dwight Howard left German brand adidas for Chinese brand Peak in mid-2015. After three signature shoes with the Chinese company — and the first-ever 3D printed basketball sneaker — the Peak DH4 has arrived.
Thanks to our overseas friend @weocia we’ve got a first look at Dwight Howard’s next signature sneaker. After last year’s knit DH3, which used two true carbon fiber support plates underfoot, Peak appears to have gone with a much more refined and sleek look for the DH4.
Now completely modern with its textured knit and synthetic build, the Peak DH4 is a slip-on sneaker fit for 2018. Riding atop a marbled outsole, the shoe features Peak’s tried and true P-Motive cushioning in a new midsole (we’ll know more when the FastPass team overseas gets this shoe on the bandsaw). Arch support has been a big focus in Howard’s shoes so expect some sort of support plate for torsional rigidity.
We’ve also got a photo of the outsole and it looks serious. The multi-directional elliptical should offer coverage both linearly and laterally so I know our testers can’t wait to try it.
There is no official word yet on when the Peak DH4 will release, whether it will come to the U.S. (unlikely), or what it will cost. Hopefully, we’ll be able to test it so for now, let us know what you think about Dwight Howard’s latest shoe in the comments below.
