The two companies have assembled to create the Heroes Among Us basketball shoes. Adidas designed the exclusive shoes with inspiration coming from the super human abilities that NBA and WNBA players display every game.

Marvel x Adidas “Heroes Among Us” Shoe Collection

Officially, the limited-edition collection is called Marvel x Adidas “Heroes Among Us” and the collaboration features six superhero-inspired sneakers. Each of the six pairs in this collection features a different Marvel superhero design (in alphabetical order): Black Panther, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Nick Fury and Thor.

The themed-shoes are also coupled with actual professional basketball players, specifically Adidas-signature players James Harden, Damian Lillard, Tracy McGrady, Candace Parker, and John Wall thus making the collection more of a three-way collaboration.

Each exclusive, limited edition sneaker leverages the colorway of each superhero’s costume and comes packaged inside a collector’s edition Marvel shoe box.

For example, the Adidas Dame 5 shoes are remixed with The Black Panther, the Adidas Pro Vision shoes are inspired by Captain Marvel, the James Harden Vol. 3s are blended with Iron Man (a nice touch considering that both share red/yellow), the McGrady’s T-Mac 1 shoes come together for a Nick Fury-inspired look, Captain America gets a colorway in Adidas’ popular N3XT L3V3L shoes, and the Adidas Marquee Boost takes on a Thor theme.
