Dwight’s Spring 2012 sig shoe in five colorways.

While the adiPower Howard picks up where the Superbeast left off, Dwight’s second half of the NBA season concept shoe, the adidas adiPower Howard 2, pushes forward.

adiPower Howard 2 returns on an ALIVE cushioning based platform and marks the first appearance of miCoach functionality into adidas’ performance basketball line.

We preview the Howard 2 in five Spring 2012 colorways. There’s the customary Orlando Magic black/blue/white “home” and white/blue/black “away” versions. A black and silver stealth-like model. A likely 2012 NBA All-Star Game shoe featuring a high energy orange makeup with gold accenting and a synthetic brushed hardwood clear print material on the upper. And finally a special China exclusive “Lei Feng” edition.

Lei Feng was a soldier in the People’s Liberation Army in China and has since become a cultural icon in the country representing the values of selflessness, discipline, modesty, volunteerism, and dedication to all Chinese. In recognition of Lei Feng, his special adiPower Howard 2 shoe takes on a primary military green hue to match his soldier uniform contrasted with Dwight’s Magic team uniform colors for accenting. The shoe features a repeating “screw” pattern upper design symbolizing Lei Feng’s commitment to helping out and holding things together through hard work and keeping a moral code. The shoe features a combination of rich nubuck and leather material selections and comes with two sets of dual-colored laces, packaged inside a special China edition box. The “Lei Feng” adidas adiPower Howard releases as a China exclusive on March 5, 2011. On the lateral heels of the shoe, “March 5th,” which is a national Chinese holiday in recognition of Feng, is embossed in Chinese characters.

The China Lei Feng shoe is FRESH. Love that colorway but looks like I’ll have to get with me Chinese sneaker connections to cop those.

Great info on the Lei Feng, I was trying to figure it out(got the March 5th from the stitching, but couldn’t connect the dots), again a good look for the Howards, but I’m hyperventilating with the lack of PureMotion :?
