Dwight Howard's jersey won't be his only new piece of apparel when the Houston Rockets' big man hits the court next season.
Howard, 27, will presumably also don the DH4, the fourth evolution of Howard's signature shoe. Adidas, Howard's sponsor, released images of the shoe this week. They have a red-and-yellow theme, which will no doubt match Howard's Houston jersey. From an adidas press release:
“The spiral wave design on the shoe’s upper is inspired by Dwight’s playing style and how he circles the paint protecting the rim by blocking shots and grabbing rebounds. The bright color palette of this Yellow-Gold-Blue colorway was selected to match Dwight’s personality while the tongue and three-stripes branding both feature a chrome treatment to stand out on the court.”
Not coincidentally, Howard will be going on an Asian tour for the next 10 days where he'll be donning the new kicks.
Rockets fans can only hope that Howard's play is as flashy as these shoes.
