The adidas T-Mac 1 “All-Star” is Hitting the Court in 2022

Devin Robertson

We are quickly approaching the 20th anniversary of one of the most memorable NBA All-Star Games of all time. It featured a mix of legends and upcoming talent and was the final All-Star game where players wore their team uniform. The 2002 All-Star game held in Philadelphia featured a duel between two of the games most dynamic scorers and adidas signature athletes Kobe Bryant and Tracy McGrady. While the hometown kid Kobe Bryant took home MVP honors and the dub, arguably the most magical moment of the show belongs to T-Mac. 

With the ball in his hands and down 45-38, Mac took one quick burst inside the three point line before tossing a lob off the backboard to himself for a rim-rattling slam dunk creating a moment those watching would never forget. Now 20 years after that duel, adidas is once again revitalizing the shoe Tracy wore during that dazzling game. The adidas T-Mac 1 “All-Star” reappeared back in 2012 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the legendary silhouette and it’s only right to return. 

The adidas T-Mac 1 “All-Star” features a mostly silver colorway with a rubber black strip appearing on the silhouette’s lateral side that forms the shoe’s iconic toe cap. The T-Mac 1 logo normally located on the shoe’s lateral heel has been replaced with a 20 to commemorate the anniversary while the Liberty Bell and “2002” appear on the heels to honor the date and location of the game. 

The adidas T-Mac 1 “All-Star” is set to release in the coming months at and other select retailers. As always, our sneaker monitors and release day strategy will have members ready for drop day.

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
