adidas today unveils three new Andrew Wiggins PE’s for the Crazylight Boost 2.5, with each colorway inspired by Wiggins’ family history and on-court play.
The “Marita” is Wiggins’ first silhouette dedicated to his mother, Marita Payne-Wiggins, who was an Olympic sprinter for Canada, who won two silver medals in the 4×100 and 4×400-meter relays in the 1984 Summer Games. They feature a silver to red gradient upper, blending Primeknit threads with forefoot mesh to deliver added breathability on the hardwood. Silver accents along the midsole, heel cap, collar lining and laces are paired with a red and white outsole for a true Canadian tribute. Gold hits to the upper’s foil treated seam and AW logo cap off the hometown exclusive.
Calling on Minnesota’s state motto, “L’Etoile du Nord” or “The Star of the North,” Wiggins’ “North Star” PE is made with a metallic heel counter and silver detailing. Designed in team colors, the shoe features a black and blue Primeknit upper with seamless integration of mesh tooling and deep blue accents throughout.
Designed in tribute to Wiggins’ journey from Canada to the NBA, adidas unveils the “Home Away From Home” edition of the Crazylight Boost 2.5. The shoe displays cascading maple leaves from the midsole to a clear outsole with green and blue accents as a nod to Wiggins’ Canadian roots and time in Minnesota. White and gray Primeknit threads are paired with dark blue mesh details, while the heel cap features a silver-blue fade treated with a chrome finish.
“Marita” is out now, while the “North Star” and “Home Away From Home” drop in February for $125.
