Anthony Edwards has had a special year for the Minnesota Timberwolves and he’s showing everyone night-in and night-out that he’s the next face of the NBA. Along with his jaw-dropping play on the court, Edwards is rocking the hottest hooping shoe on the market right now, the Adidas AE 1. Check out our Sneakers news for more upcoming releases and breaking content!

Anthony Edwards has been slowly releasing new colorways of his signature Adidas AE 1 with each becoming a home-run in terms of sales. From his ‘Peach’ colorway, his ‘All-Star’ colorway, and his newest ‘Velocity Blue’, the AE 1 has become the most talked-about shoe in the NBA. For his next release, Edwards will throw it back to his accolades long before stepping on an NBA floor.

Edwards was named a 2019 McDonald’s All-American when coming out of Holy Spirit Prep School in Georgia. He joined a cast of teammates that included Precious Achiuwa, Cole Anthony, and Jaden McDaniels among other talented prospects. During the showcase, Edwards dropped 12 points, two rebounds, and three assists en route to becoming the NBA’s first overall Draft Pick.

To coincide with his accomplishment, Anthony Edwards’ next AE 1 will feature mismatch red and blue to commemorate the McDonald’s All-American game. Former NBA star Gilbert Arenas first leaked the news via social media and it was later confirmed by Edwards that the shoes were on the way.

Adidas AE 1 ‘McDonald’s All-American’

As with all previous Adidas AE 1 models, these will feature a mesh boot underlay with the iconic TPU wave molding along the uppers. It’s the first time we’ve seen a white boot underneath the sneakers as opposed to the usual black. The right shoe will come in royal blue with the left shoe coming in varsity red. The Adidas logo on the heel will come in yellow and the shoes will feature a translucent mismatch herringbone Boost outsole.

Finer details include stars on the tongue pull tab, the McDonald’s Golden Arches on the heel tab, and a unique graphic on the insole. This is also the first time we’re seeing a mismatch colorway of the AE 1, so don’t be surprised if we see more in the future. The color possibilities are endless with a sneaker like this and it’s clear Adidas will only come up with the best for the current face of their brand.
