In 1979 the Adidas Pro Model debuted and enjoyed instant success. Because of its durable construction and padded ankle collar it was laced up on basketball courts across the nation. Over the years it was released in many colors, including exclusive colorways for college basketball teams. In 1983 Adidas stopped production of the Pro Model only to re-release them again in 2002. Now, the Pro Model is available in colors and patterns that we have never seen.
