How do you bring back an adidas classic that was once worn by Antoine Walker? You get a Celtics fan favorite like Avery Bradley to rock them, but you also get one of your high flyers to put on a new (well, kind of new) colorway. That was the case when Josh Smith responded to his latest All-Star Game snub by going 17-14-7 along with 2 blocks and helping the Atlanta Hawks beat the fading Boston Celtics in the adidas Real Deal.
Smith rocked a colorway of the Real Deal that looks very similar to this pair that was worn by sneaker cool kid Regular ‘Ol Ty but the blue accents on Ty’s pair is replaced by white. The Real Deal will be coming back at some point this year and hopefully we’ll get some sort of comeback of sorts of Walker as well. We think he could use it.
