This offseason, adidas has made a big push to be the number one basketball apparel provider in the college basketball world. The company has locked up some premiere programs this year and it’s likely they will get a few more over the coming months.
One of the biggest programs they struck a deal with was the NC State Wolf Pack.
The company has already come out with some cool merchandise and team apparel, but I don’t think there’s anything cooler than the custom shoes they made for head coach Mark Gottfried.
Those are pretty cool and I doubt Gottfried will allow them to go to waste by sitting up on the shelf in his office. He will probably be wearing them a few times on the bench this season.
I have always said that if you want to get in with a team, you make the head coach happy. That is exactly what adidas did and I’m sure they will have a ton more programs wanting some custom shoes real soon.
