In his first playoff game against the Knicks he debuted the shoes and did it justice by scoring the game winner and beat the Knicks. The Name of the shoe will be called the “Ice Trae’s”. The name derived from Trae Young’s ice cold mentality in winning games. He showed us one of the colorways of the shoe on twitter.
Yeah , yeah… they got leaked.🤣❄️

The light blue, white and red give the Ice Cold vibe of the shoe. It’s performance and durability will be in question when they come out but Trae Young has been really exceptional whilst wearing them.
Adidas has partnered with a lot of NBA Players and other athletes to create a really good line of sports shoes. Trae Young is also only 22 years old making him a real hype for fans to buy into. His shoe line will definitely grow with him in his career.
Sneaker heads and Trae Young Fans will be lining up on release date to cop these shoes. As it is his first shoe it’s value will surely increase in the future. Do you rock with these shoes?
