DALLAS, Mar 30, 2011/ FW/ — If you think that March madness is winding down, think again because there is a new player on the board, the adidas Originals Hard Court Hi basketball shoes.

Taking inspiration from a vintage collection adidas launched in 1985 called vintage Decade Hi, the new Hard Court Hi pays homage to the original basketball inspiration with 6 new high-top styles being rolled out.

In ’85, the vintage Decade Hi featured adidas’ classic patented crisscross one-piece ankle-bracing system which provided great external and internal ankle support — today new silhouette is vulcanized with clean, crisp lines.

Playing on its heritage and on-court and off-court appeal, the adicolor collection will launch exclusively with Champs and will retail for $75.
