With the adidas J Wall 1 ‘DC Blue,’ John Wall is getting his just due. The zigzagging textures highlight the supercharged point guard’s multi-directional, ankle-shattering style of play without getting too wild. The smooth representation of DC colors make the pair stand out from prior releases as well. So many patterns and textures, but they’re working on one accord so I appreciate the method to the madness.
John Wall has been making a name for himself as MVP candidate the first half of this season, and adidas picked the right time to release one of the best colorways to date for his sig. The ‘DC Blues’ should also come with a U MAD BRO postcard for “analysts” Skip Bayless and Colin Cowherd. Not too long ago, Wall was pegged as a knucklehead who was incapable of leading a playoff-worthy team. Oh how times have changed.
The J Wall 1 ‘DC Blue’ launches at adidas.com on February 6 for $115.
