adidas Originals digs into its expansive basketball archive for 2019, taking references from an early ‘90s silhouette named after the aggressive style of play for which it was originally designed – the Streetball model.

First released in the early ‘90s, the Streetball silhouette was born during the golden age of street basketball, a time when basketball shoes were high-top, tech-heavy and overbuilt. This modern reinterpretation of the Streetball model strips that ethos down, remaking it in a modern style that pays homage to the original with a more angular, contemporary design.

With that in mind, the shoe features a classic material makeup, featuring an upper constructed from premium leather with textile underlays, as well as a chunky heel stabilizer unit and streamlined lacing system. This is then placed on a Lightstrike midsole with a durable rubber outsole, accented with contrast details in the lateral midfoot and medial forefoot.

The adidas Streetball retails for PHP6,800 and is now available in-store and online at
