As we approach the end of the year, we are getting some leaks of adidas’ Chinese New Year line. I covered the Harden Vol. 3 CNY, but now the T-Mac Millenium is front and center of this leak. Kudos to adidas for not just sticking with the same colors throughout the whole line, the Red Millenium differs from the white Harden Vol. 3 that was last covered. The homage to Chinese culture is heavily present throughout the shoe, even more so than the Harden Vol. 3.
The upper is mainly comprised of a red that features a yellow and light red Chinese style fire pattern along the quarter panel and goes up into some of the toecap. The tongue also features a Chinese logo in a nice gold color that really brings the shoe together! The heel has ‘13 in 35’ written, which is a nod to McGrady’s 13 points in 35 second performance.
Continuing on, the outsole is simple a clean red to finish off this dope CNY colorway! This is by far the most impressive of the adidas Chinese New Year collection, definitely has more Chinese style imagery than the Harden’s. But stay tuned, as we’ll cover the other leaks and see how adidas is paying homage to Chinese culture.
