Atlanta Hawks: Trae Young teases So So Def shoe collab on Instagram

As Atlanta Hawks fans have waited for their team to return to action on the court, many of them have been awaiting something else. That something else is the release of the highly-anticipated Trae Young 1, the signature shoe of the superstar point guard from Adidas.

The shoe, is set for release on October 1 and you can bet they will be a hot commodity.

We’ve already gotten looks at several colorways including the “Peachtree” and “ICEE” colorways.

Now, though we don’t have a color scheme, Young has given us a sneak peek at what’s next.

Young, who has had a very active offseason that saw him debut an impressive home gym after signing his new deal, has been keeping fans updated throughout the wait for his shoe.

He also shared several pictures of himself in a shoe store with the caption “It’s on the way” a few hours after posting the video, shot in his new home gym, to Instagram.

After teasing the shoes back in May, Young debuted them on the court in the playoffs against the New York Knicks.

He had 32 points, 10 assists, and seven rebounds in Game 1 wearing the “Peachtree” versions.

At the time, Young said “Obviously, the shoe doesn’t come out for a little bit for everybody to get it. But I really wanted to play in it,” adding, “I just wanted to be able to play my first playoffs in my own shoe. It’s pretty special.”

Young tagged superproducer and hip hop legend Jermaine Dupri in the video. Dupri founded So So Def in 1993 and introduced the world to Kris Kross, Da Brat, and has worked with Usher, Lil Kim, and countless others.

This will surely only add to the anticipation for the shoe with it showing another strong connection to the area.

We’ll have to see what the actual colorway is (the video is black and white) and if it’s among the first to be made available to the public or if they remain exclusive to Young himself for the time being.

Either way, once they are available, they are sure to be in high demand. The guard’s popularity has only grown after he averaged 28.8 points and 9.5 assists in the playoffs. He also played his best in some of the toughest situations, winning the first two series against the Knicks and 76ers on the road.
