Spring is here and adidas is celebrating with the release of the Florist City Collection for two of basketball’s rising stars, Washington Wizards’ point guard John Wall and Portland Trail Blazers’ point guard Damian Lillard. The collection includes, socks, hats, sweatshirts and the iconic Crazy 1 basketball shoe all featuring a floral print design and colors commemorating the annual spring celebrations in the cities Wall and Lillard call home.
Damian’s Rose City edition Crazy 1 pays homage to Portland’s famous rose gardens and Rose Festival with a rose print on the upper and laces and green detailing mirrored after the flower’s stem. Wall’s Cherry Blossom edition Crazy 1 comes in time for fans to lace-up a pair for this year’s Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C. The cherry blossom print on the outsole and laces is contrasted with a grey upper designed to replica the stone used in the monuments throughout the Nation’s Capital.
Socks feature a sublimated floral print and iconic Portland and D.C. landmarks while the sweatshirts designed in partnership with Portland based Bridge & Burn feature Wall and Lillard specific detailing on the sleeve.
Fans can grab both Florist City edition Crazy 1s for $125 along with select collection items on March 19 at Compound Gallery and adidas.com.
Wall and Lillard will be stopping by Compound Gallery (107 NW 5th Ave.) in Portland March 19 from 7- 9pm to sign autographs and celebrate the launch of the collection. Fans that purchase items from the Florist City Collection will gain VIP access to the meet and greet line.
