Billie Jean King Inspires the Latest adidas Speedfactory AM4
The US Open is upon us. To celebrate, adidas are following up from their Speedfactory-crafted AM4 drop for Atlanta with a homage to Billy Jean King. Taking cues from a pair of kicks King rocked on court 45 years ago, the special release comes dressed in blue and sports King’s likeness on the tongue to go along with details like ‘AM4BJK’ branding and a plush BOOST midsole. The drop also coincides with King’s new ‘Here To Create Change’ initiative and will be limited to just 300 pairs.
The kicks will hit adidas.com and adidas’s US Open pop-up shop on August 27 for $200 USD per pair. Those who hit up the pop-up on Monday will even be treated to an appearance from King herself from 3:30 to 4:30pm EDT.
