John Wall's new J Wall 2 summer colorways are very hot, very orange

Now that Labor Day Weekend has come and gone, the NBA season is closer than you may realize. And if the NBA season is close, that means it time for shoe brands to get people excited about new shoe releases.

Adidas got the ball rolling Tuesday morning by unveiling the "Take On Summer Edition" of the J Wall 2, which will be available on September 21, a full month ahead of the drop of his home colorway on Halloween.

Not gonna lie, these shoes look pretty awesome, but we are a little bit concerned about the branding here. Adidas announced Wall's shoes by tweeting "Heat Flash" (#Wall2Miami?) and the colors are a little concerning as well (#Wall2OKC???).

The announcement coincides with the start of Wall's Take on Summer Tour in China. As part of his week-long trip, Wall is visiting Guangzhou, Qingdao, Beijing and Taiwan. If we had to guess, he'll probably try to sneak in another trip to the Great Wall of China, because the magnet-like attraction of the Great Wall for someone with the last name of Wall is probably irresistible.
