With the latest Marvel movie Avengers:Endgame set to hit theaters April 26 and the NBA playoffs underway this week, the multimedia studio and Adidas teamed up to created a slick limited edition set of colorways and that feature pro stars including Candace Parker of the WNBA’s Los Angeles Sparks. Parker, who has had her own signature Adidas shoe for years, the TS Ace Commander, is one of five players included in the campaign.
From the Adidas release on the collection:
“Basketball players, like Super Heroes, have alter-egos. Just as Super Heroes don masks, players don uniforms, and each athlete represents a different power and skill. These unique powers, once assembled, create an unstoppable force of good. With the world watching, these heroes take center stage, placing their teams, their cities and their communities on their backs. Inspired by the Marvel Super Heroes that captivate fans both in the comics and on the big screen, adidas has iconized some of basketball’s mightiest heroes.”
The other players featured in the collection include James Harden , Damian Lillard , John Wall and Tracy McGrady. The players represent the iconic Marvel characters Iron Man, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Captain America and Nick Fury.
The collection will be available for purchase the same day as the movie gets released nationwide.
