Howard's kicks have been pretty consistently good for his tenure with adidas, and even though it seems to be a rough time to be signed with adidas, what with Howard's image troubles, Derrick Rose's torn ACL and Eric Gordon's knee problems, they continue to pump out some good shoes.
His newest edition, the adidas AdiPower Howard 3, is bulky in name only. It's a lightweight (as all basketball shoes are these days) stylish shoe that doesn't try to rely on looks alone. It looks cool, but it doesn't go out of its way to look cool.
The only thing I found strange about these bad boys is that, like every other shoe Howard's had in the past, the initial release is in Magic colors. It seems like they would have at least thrown some yellow or purple on them.
In honor of his newest shoe, it seems necessary to take a look back at Howard's shoe history and compare them to the rest.
