Jeff Teague is Atlanta's main Adidas man.  It's crazy to believe that prior to signing with Adidas, he had never worn an Adidas shoe in his life. Teague decided to sign with Adidas after his Nike contract ended at the beginning of the 2012-13 season.  During his first year with Adidas, Teague had the chance to debut the 'Brenda' colorway of the D Rose 3's.  This red colorway of the D Rose line is named after Rose's mother.

Right now he sports the Adidas Crazylight Boost.  Although these shoes weren't made specifically for him, Teague is one of Adidas's main advertisers for this product.  The Adidas Crazylight line is the biggest sneaker line for Adidas outside of their player specific lines.  This is because they are extremely lightweight, and the boost technology allows for extra responsiveness.  The technology in these shoes change everything.

Adidas will not be renewing their uniform contract with the NBA for the 2017-2018 season, and Nike will be the new provider.  This means that Adidas should have extra room in their budget to produce player specific sneakers.  Could we possibly see a J Teague shoe in the future?
