The brand is already sneakerheads reasons to look forward to February and March, as it continues to release new colorways for the hit AE 1, Anthony Edwards’ first signature model, and prepares for the debut of James Harden’s newest sneaker. There’s also the small matter of the NBA All-Star Game midway through the month, which will bring both retros and dedicated colorways for Adidas’ flagship athletes playing in the game.
Take a look at all the best Adidas releases on the way below, which have been arranged in descending order.
Release Date: March 8
Adidas will look to continue its sellout streak for Anthony Edwards’ first signature shoe in its third (below) and fourth colorways. This colorway deviates from the two-tone look of its predecessors, as Edwards’ favorite color consumes the sneaker.
Release Date: March 1
Sneakerheads have been calling this upcoming AE 1 colorway, “Stormtrooper,” while Adidas has officially christened it, “Best of Adi,” because of the brand’s historical use of black and white. Whatever you want to call it, it should be yet another hit for Anthony Edwards and Adidas.
Release Date: Feb. 23
James Harden’s latest signature sneaker makes its debut and continues a delightfully weird streak from Adidas that began with the Harden Vol. 7 and continued with the AE 1.
Release Date: Feb. 15
Adidas is bringing back the sneaker Kobe Bryant wore for his first-ever All-Star appearance in 1998. The Crazy 8, formerly known as the KB 8, hasn’t released in this colorway since 2011 — but this year’s drop swaps Bryant’s no. 8 for “’98” embroidery in Lakers purple and yellow on the tongue.
Adidas AE 1 “Arctic Fusion”

A much higher price tag comes to the Samba, as a special edition of the sneaker was made in Italy with premium Italian leather. The muted colorway also takes its inspiration from Italian dress shoes.

The new year brings a new treatment to the Samba, as Adidas swaps leather for nylon and adds reflective detailing for the Three Stripes motif and mustache.
Release Date: Dec. 25
