Three months after winning his second Lombardi trophy and Super Bowl MVP, Patrick Mahomes still has the sporting multiverse talking about him. Besides the intense rehab and offseason training, the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback has captured the headlines with his Adidas collaboration. And this week was a special milestone as a much-anticipated shoe line dropped with some special and unique colorways.
Months after dedicating a blue sneaker to his Mahomes 1 Impact FLX shoe line, Patrick Mahomes announced the launch of a few more color variations. The new releases have set the standard of hype among not just NFL players but also his family members. Mahomes took to Instagram to announce the launch date. And Randi Mahomes couldn’t hold in her excitement any longer.
Patrick Mahomes dazzles everyone with an eye-catching release
Fans suspected an incoming surprise when Patrick Mahomes shared an Instagram story recently showing him in a roundtable discussion with the design team of Adidas Football US. Well, it’s here. The latest designs of the Mahomes1 Impact FLX officially hit the stores in seven brand new colors on June 1, as per Adidas’ official post. “It’s only a matter of time. Train for any threat on the gridiron. With the all-new Mahomes 1 Venom Slinger,” the collaboration post from Mahomes and Adidas said in the captions.
Mother Randi Mahomes was ecstatic after receiving her personal Solar Orange edition. “I love these so very much. Feeling very special today,” she captioned a reel with the shoes.
Pat Mahomes shared the reel on his IG story. He also reposted the now-expired IG stories posted by his former Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman and University of California quarterback Dante Moore.
Besides the electric Team Solar Orange color, the other variations include the Grey Two, Team Collegiate Red, Cloud White, and the family special Sky Rush blue dedicated to Patrick Mahomes’ daughter Sterling Skye Mahomes.
Mahomes took special measures to ensure a smooth promotion of his new shoe line
It’s not just quarterbacking that Patrick Mahomes excels at. The two-sport athlete from Texas Tech has some talented baseball genes, courtesy of his former MLB pitcher father, Pat Mahomes Sr. The Chiefs superstar showed off his batting skills as he homered in the ‘Big Slick’ Celebrity Softball game this week. However, Mahomes, who was donning his KC Royals jersey, couldn’t let the game hamper his shoe launch.
Adidas athlete Patrick Mahomes stitched over the Nike logo of the Royals to avoid any legal or marketing complications. And it seems to have worked as the product is listed as a bestseller on the official Adidas website.
The only thing that comes to mind with Mahomes’ shoe line success is the comparisons to NBA icon Michael Jordan and his global Air Jordan shoe craze. Can Mahomes become the next MJ and help Adidas reach the top once again?
