Duncan to debut Houston-inspired Adidas All-Star sneakers

Adidas Crazy FastNBA All-Star weekend has always been the place where the sneakerheads in the NBA decide to let it all hang out and go crazy with off-the-wall colors and designs.

While players like 76ers guard Nick Young are known to mix it up on a game-by-game basis, San Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan is usually seen in his signature black and white Adidas "Big Fundamental" shoes.

But for his 14th NBA All-Star game, Duncan will be hitting the hardwood in Houston in a pair of special All-Star edition Adidas "Crazy Fast"  sneakers, with the design of the issue inspired from the hosting city.

Inspired by Houston’s history of aviation, speed, style and atmosphere of NBA All-Star weekend, the new edition rolls out February 1. The NBA All-Star edition features an impact camo pattern, which is designed to stand out on the court, showcase bold style and evoke the exhilaration that comes from being faster than your opponent. The Crazy Fast design is inspired by the speed and power of a combustion engine and the drive inside players to dominate on the court. The bold, green zest Crazy Fast NBA All-Star edition will be worn on-court by Duncan, Jrue Holiday of the Philadelphia 76ers (East) and Rising Stars Challenge and NBA All-Star Saturday Night participants. 

If his 14th is his last All-Star game, Duncan sure is going out in style. All Duncan needs now for All-Star weekend is the matching knee brace.
