With just two days to spare before the Super Bowl, Adidas has unveiled Patrick Mahomes‘ second signature sneaker.
The Mahomes 2 Impact FLX training shoe arrives two and a half years after its predecessor first launched and is complemented by run of matching apparel. Its debut color scheme features matte gold and bronze accents inspired by the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback’s love for and collection of luxury watches.

“Myself, my team and Adidas spent over a year perfecting every detail in Mahomes 2, down to the timepiece symbols featured on the first shoe and the zippers on the hoodies,” Mahomes said in a press release. “Our hard work and passion comes to life today, and I can’t wait to see fans rocking the collection.”
The Mahomes 2 swaps Boost for a Repetitor foam midsole while adding a generative traction outsole and enhanced mesh upper. Much of the same DNA remains, including the zig-zag midsole shape and thick Three Stripe branding.
“Patrick’s a generational force in sports — not just football —shaping the next generation of athletes and serving as an inspiration to all by overcoming pressure in the biggest moments and finding joy in the game,” said Chris Murphy, senior vice president of Brand Marketing at Adidas.
Mahomes’ newest capsule will also include two sets of ZNE jackets and pants, three graphic T-shirts and three ZNE shorts.
Although a more firm release date hasn’t yet been confirmed, the Adidas Mahomes 2 Impact FLX will release in February in limited numbers through Adidas’ website and app.
