Adidas Track and Field spikes
Jesse Owens’ track-and-field feats are only rivaled by his monumental leaps in municipal justice. Through the early to mid 1930’s, Owens would break files regarding the track-and-field while propelling African-Americans during a trying period of racial divide.
In 1934 during the Berlin Summer Games, when Owens won a record-breaking four gold medals, he wore track spikes created by adidas president, Adi Dassler. Today, decades later on, adidas awards their accomplishments with a fitting Black background Month collection.
Integrating aided by the Owens family for the release, the offering highlights new renditions of adidas D Rose 6 (0), D Lillard 2 (5) together with Crazylight Boost 2.5. The collection in general will be donned by famous brands James Harden, Derrick Rose and Damian Lillard next Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
The collection begins using the D Rose 6 featuring elderly tumbled leather that pays direct tribute into track spikes Owens wore some 80 years back. Both the D Lillard 2 and Crazylight Boost highlight off-white primaries married to gold-foil accents that symbolize the silver metals Owens won during the Olympics.
