It’s Miller Time: adidas a3 Decade II Mike Miller PE

Its Miller Time: adidas a3 Decade II Mike Miller PE

Fact: Minnesota Timberwolves forward Mike Miller might have his bellybutton pierced. Fact: Mike Miller’s adidas player samples fetch exorbitant amounts on eBay, and are sought after by MM fanatics worldwide, much like Ponce de Leon aggressively explored for the Fountain of Youth. Ai-ight. The latter is false for sure, but the former, I think that’s true. Can’t tell you when I saw Miller shirtless, but I think its better that we both don’t know. And even if you haven’t seen the T'Wolves forward topless, it’s hard not to appreciate his special make-up pair of adidas a3 Decade II’s from his disastrous Memphis Grizzlies days. (Well, to clarify, Mike is a perennial All-Star snub. The rest of his team was doo-doo however.) Much like the Grizz, the Decade Deux proved to be dismal performer on the ‘wood, as its a3-micro heel-oriented cushioning was unbelievably unresponsive, taking months to break in. Overall fit was horrible, because the lacing vamp was far too wide for the narrowly-set shoe. Traction and forefoot cushion were admirable, though!

Miller’s version was distinguished by a buttery sky blue/yellow color scheme and features his number, 33, inscribed along the forefoot. Highlights from the shoe include the translucent a3 pods that are highlighted with just a tint of sky blue. Sick. Oh, and “Miller Time” is stitched along the heel; don’t worry--we at Sneakerfiles aren’t really sure what “that” is, but we assume it’s some sort of ascension into hoops nirvana that only (alleged) belly button-pierced ballplayers would know about.

Does anybody else think that the NBA was insulting our intelligence by creating one of their “Where Amazing Happens” commercials for the 22-win Timberwolves? What’s next? “NBA Stadium Restrooms: Where Amazing Happens”? Dave at Blazer’s Edge also writes a Wolves team preview. From ESPN’s NBA Awards Watch, Kevin Love makes their “Rookie Watch”: 4. Kevin Love, Timberwolves: He rebounds, finishes around the basket, passes well and can knock down the outside shot. His conditioning and defense need work, but overall, he’ll be effective. Via Ball Don’t Lie, Sneakerfiles posts a pic of Adidas’ “Miller Time” shoes. […]
