Dwight Howard signed with the Houston Rockets this summer in free agency, but business rolls on. Howard’s shoe sponsor is rolling out his new shoe that features red and yellow, the colors of Howard’s new team the Rockets.
“The spiral wave design on the shoe’s upper is inspired by Dwight’s playing style and how he circles the paint protecting the rim by blocking shots and grabbing rebounds. The bright color palette of this Yellow-Gold-Blue colorway was selected to match Dwight’s personality while the tongue and three-stripes branding both feature a chrome treatment to stand out on the court.”
I don’t quite get the need to force blue in and how blue represents his personality. Blue is usually a sad color, so is the blue supposed to reflect his sadness with his new team, or that he has to live in Houston?
The shoe is called the ‘D Howard 4′ and will be released as the season gets under way in early November.
