Ever since Trae Young launched his first signature shoe at Madison Square Garden in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, fans have been eagerly awaiting the chance to purchase a pair. Finally, the sneakerheads had their chance yesterday.
Trae Young sent a few tweets with a link to the adidas website, and within hours, the adidas Trae Young 1 shoes were sold out – in two different colourways. I noticed a trend of people on Twitter who were upset because the shoes were gone before they even opened their phones.
Fortunately, you still have a few options if you want one of the first two colourways to be released yesterday. First, fans can use the website search options to see if the shoes are in the actual physical locations of their local stores.
Second, at the time of this article, some sizes are still available online at Dicks Sporting Goods, Finish Line, and Champs Sports. It’s not guaranteed to last long, so act fast.
Finally, if Young’s fans are so desperate, they may pay resale prices on third-party sites like StockX, GOAT, or eBay. You should have no problem finding your size on any of these sites. But, of course, not everyone will want to pay more than the retail price plus the included fees to go through these resale sites.
If all else fails, fans can wait for future colorways to drop. Here is a link to the article I posted a few weeks ago, which details the release schedule for the next three colorways.
Also, keep in mind that in the near future there will be a lot more colorways that we haven’t seen yet. I asked Young about the unannounced colorways of the adidas Trae Young 1 on NBA media day last Monday.
It’s an exciting time to be a Hawks fan and a sneakerhead. Be sure to come back to AllHawks.com for updates on Trae Young’s first signature shoe.
