The second version of NBA superstar Dwight Howard’s signature line – the Super Beast delivers premium material innovation and advanced cushioning packaged in a clean, understated style. Dwight will debut a limited edition version of the Super Beast during his fifth appearance in the NBA All-Star Game.
UPPER: adidas Basketball has developed an all-new version of basketball specific SPRINTSKIN featured in the Super Beast. The micro injected skin is directionally engineered to provide optimum reinforcement during hard lateral movements. It is seamlessly applied to a mesh base for superior breathability, and is made of a rubber based material that adds increased durability for continuous wear.
The Super Beast continues with Dwight specific oversized branding. The three stripes are broken into separate pin lines inspired from his jersey, and the fade is drawn from famous movie scenes where victims are unaware of eminent attack.
LINING: Spacer mesh textile creates both additional padding and increased air circulation.
SOCKLINER: PU insole for durable comfort.
MIDSOLE: The new double stacked Z shaped TORSION SYSTEM features two deep grooves that run along the arch that allows the foot to easily rotate or twist inward, but slow the rate that the ankle can roll outward. This simple solution limits injuries and increases the body’s energy efficiency. An all-new nano cushioning element compresses when activated to provide superior cushioning comfort at the lowest most stable heights to date as well as adding zone specific traction.
Retail price is $100, and will release this February in sizes 6.5-15, 16-20.
