Thankfully, the faulty narratives surrounding Trae Young throughout his first few years in the league are finally being proven false. Everyone in Atlanta already knew this was the case, but Young is showing why he’s one of the NBA’s best… and most exciting players during the Hawks first playoff run in four years. Because of that, Atlanta has already taken two games off the top-seed in the East and are just two more away from the Eastern Conference Finals — something nobody outside the city could of predicted.
With success, comes endorsements. Few are more deserving of a signature shoe deal than Trae Young, and what better time for his first shoe to leak than in the middle of the postseason, where he has been must-watch TV.
Not every player that gets a signature shoe nails it, but these are absolute gasoline. The polar bear on the back caps them off perfectly, and they won’t be the only ones available. Young has already debuted the Peachtree edition of his signature shoe on the floor during the playoffs.
Adidas announced that the Trae Young 1s would be released this year. I can’t imagine a better time to debut them that right now, as Young continues to memorize many during the postseason. They are expected to cost $140.
