Toronto Raptors x adidas AM4 “World Champs”


To celebrate the Toronto Raptors‘ 2019 NBA Championship title, sportswear giant adidas is gearing up to release a special edition AM4 silhouette paying homage to the Canadian basketball team.

Dubbed the “World Champs,” the limited edition commemorative model features a mostly white upper that has been detailed with scores from every playoff win during the Raptors‘ championship season. Additionally golden “World Champs” embellishments have been emblazoned on the left and right shoe, while the heel cap sports a contrasting red outfit and black Raptors insignia.

“To launch the limited-edition shoe, adidas partnered with Toronto Raptors point guard, Kyle Lowry, to showcase the commemorative shoe design in a video that captures the star player unboxing the shoes,” said Ciara Dalziel, Account Manager for rock-it promotions, in a press release. “The design is crazy I wouldn’t have even thought about it, I would love to wear them, but they are so precious,” said Lowry in a video posted to social media.

Interested readers can try their luck at purchasing the Toronto Raptors x adidas AM4 “World Champs” sneakers through the Raptors Mobile App starting Sunday, November 17 at 9:00 a.m. EST. Only 613 pairs will be released, a number that pays tribute to June 13 when the Raptors took home the title. The price for the sneakers are still unknown.
