The NBA is amid a change of guard, with young stars rising to replace aging veterans. Not only does this ring true regarding on-court performance, but in the world of footwear, the next generation of NBA talent is getting their first signature silhouettes. This generation includes Anthony Edwards, whose signature sneaker with adidas, the AE 1, has garnered attention for its cutting-edge design, affordability, and unique marketing campaigns. While we await release information for the Coral and Bred colorways, Edwards debuted a special PE edition of the AE 1 on the court, paying homage to his roots with a colorway inspired by his youth football team, the Atlanta Vikings.

The adidas AE 1 Atlanta Vikings PE stands out with its striking two-tone purple and gold finish, directly nodding to the team colors of the Atlanta Vikings. The sneaker features a large honeycomb TPU panel across the midfoot adorned with a metallic gold finish that immediately catches the eye. This golden touch extends to the lace set and heel branding, the latter incorporating an ant logo in a playful reference to Edwards' "Ant-Man" moniker. Above this sits a regal purple hue, covering the Primeblue knit material, TPU toe cap, and the faux carbon fiber heel counter, creating a royal aesthetic fitting for a player of Edwards' caliber. Rounding out the look is the semi-translucent sole unit, which encases adidas' Jet Boost and Lightstrike cushioning technology beneath.

Unfortunately, the adidas AE 1 Atlanta Vikings PE will remain exclusive to Ant-Man and will not receive a public release.
