Kareem Abdul-Jabbar didn’t know what he did to his opponents? Of course he did. The 3x NCAA Champion, 6x NBA Champion, 19x All-Star and the league’s all-time leader in both blocks and scoring is as accomplished as it gets on the court. It’s his pedigree as a person and a philanthropist that round out the roundball legend. The adidas Jabbar Hi “The Blueprint” celebrates both the man and his legacy, drawing from insight provided by the current crop of NBA elite. The Blueprint theme corresponds to the best answer given when describing Kareem and his career, while the shoe’s story is told via the artistic interpretation of Morning Breath.
Actual Tyvek blueprint paper constructs this colorway, complemented by white contrast stitching. The name’s of the players asked about Abdul-Jabbar are printed on the right footbed, with their corresponding answers about him listed on the left footbed.
Peep the schematic layout and detailed images of the adidas Jabbar Hi “The Blueprint” below. Look for these to launch during All-Star Weekend on February 14th at select adidas accounts and online at adidas.
