After a lengthy bidding war between adidas and Nike for the right to endorse Los Angeles Laker Nick Young, the German-based brand ultimately won out which led people to ponder if the oft-used guard would actually get a signature shoe despite averaging 7.3 points last season and often finding himself getting DNP-CDs under former Lakers coach Byron Scott.
Today we get an answer to the question... sort of.
The all-white Player Edition version of the Crazy Explosive Primeknit with Swaggy P logo on the tongue is a way to recognize his talents without creating a new product in his name. This is a similar strategy adidas has employed with other NBA talents like Andrew Wiggins. Harrison Barnes, Iman Shumpert, Serge Ibaka, Marcus Smart and Justise Winslow.
Featuring a Primeknit upper with hits of grey accenting the branding, the Crazy Explosive Primeknit should be hitting shelves at select retailers shortly.
