Offered in unisex design, the mid-top Adidas Originals by AW Turnout Basketball shoes are available in men's sizing 3.5 to 13.5 in medium width. This model has the traditional lace-up front fastening system for an adjustable, snug fit while the padded tongue provides added overall comfort and style. Meanwhile, the pull loop found on the tongue aids in slipping this shoe on easily.

Few buyers found this kick a bit wider; thus it is recommended grabbing a half size down than the buyer's usual size.

The unisex Adidas Originals x Alexander Wang Turnout BBall sneaker features the classic basketball shoe appeal, modernized to suit the modern trend. The 1997's EQT Elevation inspired upper is made of textile and synthetic panels seated atop a thick midsole inspired by several trainers. To further elevate the modern look, Wang's signature branding was laid on the lacing system, quarter panel, and on the midsole.  

Adidas offers this in two neutral colorways - the Core Black and Cloud White/ Core Black, for buyers to pick depending on their penchant. To style this eye-catching footwear, a score of fashionistas can be seen sporting this with their cuffed pants or joggers topped with plain tees and finished off with a sporty cap.  Meanwhile, for a totally athletic look, some can be seen flaunting this with their monochromatic tracker suit.

The attention-grabbing thick rubber sole of the Adidas x Alexander Wang Futureshell gives this pair a noticeable appeal to the majority of the buyers. This element was inspired by several trainers from Adidas' archives mashed up to create a unique design with futuristic guise.

Adidas started collaborating in the decade when shoulder pads, neon clothes, and high socks ruled the fashion market. The brand was the first to partner with non-athletes, aside from athletes, among the known athletic brands in the market.

To keep up with the diverse demand of modern consumers, Adidas has teamed up with several brands, names and retailers found all over the world to come up with unique and fashionable kicks. Some of the most notable partnership of Adidas was with Yohji Yamamoto, Ric Owens, TopShop, Raf Simons, Kanye West, and Alexander Wang, popular for his modern designs.

The Adidas x Wang came up with a complete line of fashion apparel, from clothes to footwear, all displaying unconventional appeal offered in unisex sizing, consistent to Wang's eclectic style. Wang has been consistent in creating a fashion line up that shows a quirky look of some of Adidas' classic footwear silhouette.
