The very first sneakers Jimmy Butler rocked in an official NBA game was the adidas adiZero Ghost.
This sneaker was a part of adidas’ light basketball sneaker trend at the time, being as light as a ghost, hence the name. A lot of the weight reduction is due to the SprintWeb upper, which is made up of thin but durable plastics that also offer maximum breathability.
Jimmy Butler (with a clean shaven head) didn’t even play his first four regular season games of the lockout-shortened 2011-12 NBA season. He later debuted in this three-striped sneaker dropping two points on the Memphis Grizzlies. How far the soon-to-be Jimmy Buckets has come.
The adidas adiZero Ghost is currently unavailable at retailers.
