Adi's Top Pick
Herzogenaurach, Germany-based Adidas has signed Andrew Wiggins, the No. 1 NBA overall pick drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers. The 6-foot-8-inch player is fresh out of the University of Kansas, where he scored numerous accolades including Big 12 Freshman of the Year, first-team All-Conference and second-team All-American.

"Knowing that this elite brand is welcoming me into the family with such esteem gives me a great deal of pride," Wiggins said of the partnership with Adidas. "Our collaboration couldn't be more organic both personally and professionally, and I look forward to moving to the next level with the brand."

Skyline Style
