Anthony Edwards’ Adidas AE 1 Low Will Release in a ‘USA’ Colorway for the Olympics in August


More from Footwear News


Anthony Edwards debuted his Adidas AE 1 Low in an Olympic colorway Sunday during Team USA’s scrimmage in Las Vegas, and another similar iteration of the sneaker has been confirmed for an August release.

The Adidas AE 1 Low “USA Navy” will release in August as one of Edwards’ first low-tops to hit the market. The blue dominant-sneaker makes faint use of red and white, as the former color can be seen beneath the TPU wings and on the toe cap. White is then used for the tongue and mustache branding, as well as a sliver of Boost peeking out the heel, while a red “USA” mark appears on the inner side of the tongue pull tab.

During Team USA’s scrimmage, Edwards wore another version of the sneaker featuring white on the TPU wings and sole unit. Blue then forms the rest of the knit upper, while red is used for the toe cap. Release information for the AE 1 Low “USA White” have not yet been confirmed.

Edwards first broke out his AE 1 Low during the opening game of the NBA playoffs, and the low-top will launch in a marbled “MX Grey” colorway July 22. An additional “Mural” variant will release in August while flipping the AE 1’s “With Love” launch colorway from December.

The AE 1 has been a massive hit for Adidas, regularly selling out as new colorways have been released and generating more buzz than any other basketball sneaker in years. In addition to the shoe’s futuristic appearance, the AE 1 has also been bolstered by Edwards’ frank personality and emergence as one of the league’s brightest young stars.

Despite the more experienced stars surrounding him on Team USA, Edwards insisted Sunday that he’ll be the squad’s “no. 1 option.”

The Adidas AE 1 Low “USA Navy” will release August 15 through Adidas’ website and select third-party retailers. Pricing is set at $110.
