Foot Locker/Adidas' "Cubed"
The sole of A3, Adidas' newest sneaker is quickly examined by the camera against an all white screen before it becomes encased in a transparent cube and morphs into the full sneaker. Once fully transformed, the sneaker drops to the ground, which becomes a basketball arena, and is accompanied by its matching shoe. The pair displays impressive footwork all the way down the court and seemingly sinks a slam dunk that shatters the backboard. The original A3 lands on the ground and is encompassed in a Foot Locker shopping bag.
