Adidas Pro Model basketball shoes came out in 1969 and have been a mainstay on the court ever since. The brand has expanded to include several styles of Pro Models, some of which are high-tech while others are sleek and vintage-inspired.
The adidas Pro Model is a basketball shoe for men, women and juniors. Within the Pro Model brand, there are several styles, including the Pro Model 2.0 and the Pro Model '08 Team Color. Each shoe features the iconic three-stripe pattern that identifies adidas shoes.
The Pro Model shoe features adidas' trademarked Adiprene cushioning technology, which maximises forefoot propulsion and "toe-off." In other words, as you run, you push off with the balls of your feet and your toes. Pro Model shoes have Adiprene insoles in the mid-foot and toe area and Adiprene has a spring to it that helps you move slightly faster. Pro Model shoes also have Climacool shoe ventilation: Air travels through small channels in the shoe to cool your foot as you work out or play sports. All Pro Model sneakers feature fabric interiors and rubber soles.
Men's Pro Model Styles
The original Pro Model has a rubber shell toe and comes in white on white (white leather with white stripes). It's a mid-top, meaning a sneaker style halfway between a high-top and standard shoe-styl. The Pro Model '08 Team Color is patent leather and features interchangeable stripes: Uou can slide out the stripes it came with and slide in stripes of a different colour. The Pro Model '08 comes in white with black stripes and silver accents, royal blue with white stripes and silver accents, and red with white stripes and silver accents. The Pro Model 2.0 is a mid-top with a corduroy upper and comes in navy with white stripes. The laces and tongue are sky blue. It also has a shell toe. The Pro Model Lux is a mid-top sneaker that comes in pebbled brown deer leather with grey suede stripes.
The women's version of the Pro Model '08 Team Color is the same as the men's version. It comes in black with white stripes, white with black stripes and red with silver stripes. Women with smaller feet also can try wearing junior sizes of the Pro Model or Pro Model Team Color.
The Pro Model '08 Team Color for juniors comes in sizes 3-1/2 to 7. It's available in black with white stripes and silver accents, and white with black stripes and silver accents. Like the men's and women's versions of the Pro Model '08 Team Color, it has interchangeable stripes, so you can customise your sneaker's look. The Pro Model in white on white is also available for juniors.
