One year ago today, the Atlanta Hawks faced the New York Knicks in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Playoffs. Trae Young led the Hawks to victory with 32 points, 10 assists, 7 rebounds, and a buzzer-beating floater to seal the 107-105 victory. 

The raucous game served as Young's first postseason game as well as the debut of his new signature sneaker - the Adidas Trae Young 1. Over the past 365 days, Young has made an overwhelming case for best point guard in the league. This regular season, the 23-year-old became the second player in history to lead the NBA in total points and assists.  

Adidas has met Young's mind-blowing performances each step of the way with fire colorways for what many consider the best performance basketball shoes on the market. Thanks to Young and Adidas being in their bag, the shoe has become a best-seller and has a claim at best signature line debut since 'His Airness' took flight back in the 1980s. Time is running out before the second installment of Young's signature line is here, so let's recap the top 25 colorways of the Adidas Trae Young 1.
