The San Antonio Spurs three-point specialist and long-time New Balance enthusiast debuted a pair of grey and black adidas Crazy 8 in last night’s home loss to the Thunder.
Bonner is sure to enjoy a steady supply of sneaker from adidas, a marked change from the last two years of Bonner rotating a dwindling stash of New Balance 8026s in the effort to extend his tenure in the shoes as long as possible.
In Fall 2012, Bonner discovered a few extra pairs of New Balances in a locker that he’d planned to save for the 2012-13 NBA season, and had been making them work game after game since.
Bonner’s move to adidas leaves New Balance without an NBA presence. The Boston-based company has quietly withdrawn from the basketball shoe category over the last five years.
