Via adidas, here are some of the specs of the adidas Beast, the new signature shoe for Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard. The Beast launches next month exclusively at Foot Locker and Eastbay at a suggested retail price of $100. My favorite detail on the shoe? "The heel inlay piece reads, 'Hey WOOOOOOOOOOORLD,' as a shout to all of [Howard's] social media followers," according to the fact sheet, which adds a personal touch to the Beast's design. And at 15 ounces, the Beast is also Howard's "lightest shoe to date."
Black/black/royal is the first colorway for the adidas Beast, with an additional three colorways rolling out through December.
adidas also passed along a few images of the Beast; you can view that gallery here.
Howard is not the only young adidas superstar debuting a signature shoe this year. Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls will wear the adiZero Rose this season. Read more about his shoe here.
