adidas unveils latest signature shoe for Dwight Howard, the D Howard 4 (PHOTOS)

17 Comments

With the drama of a season with the Lakers behind him, Dwight Howard is beginning his fresh start with the Houston Rockets.

He’ll be doing it with his latest signature shoe from adidas, the D Howard 4.

From the official 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.”

“You can catch Dwight wearing this Yellow-Gold-Blue colorway of the D Howard 4 as he tours Asia during Dwight Howard Tour taking place August 16-26 in Seoul, South Korea; Taipei, Taiwan; Hong Kong and Hangzhou, Chengdu and Beijing, China. The D Howard 4 is available on adidas.com November 1 in three colorways with two more dropping in December.”

The traction appears to be similar to the CrazyQuicks that John Wall debuted earlier this year, although with some noticeable tweaks in the heel and forefoot areas.

In case the colorway pictured is a little exotic for your tastes, Howard was seen wearing a more subtle black and gold model during his workout with Hakeem Olajuwon.
