2. Adidas CrazyLight BOOST 2.5 BHM, 2016
The CrazyLight BOOST 2.5 by Adidas served as a prelude to the James Harden signature line, but ultimately is a fairly under the radar’ model. With that said, the power of storytelling comes into play when raking the best Black History Month kicks of all time. The 2016 collection celebrated one of the most important people in history, Mr. Jesse Owens. Owens was a world record breaker, but more importantly he was a barrier breaker. In the 1936 Berlin Summer Olympics Owens became the first American track and field athlete to win four gold medals in a single games; and he did so in front of Hitler. Owens’s Olympic feats (among other accomplishments) made him a symbol of social justice and equality for people across the world. Mr. Owen’s bib number of ‘733’ is located on the tongue of these striking cream and gold kicks. The gold foil material across the toe box mimics Olympic gold for an epic effect.
