After an almost season long rest, recovery, and rehab process from a nagging knee injury, Gilbert Arenas is looking to fire up his Hibachi once again as he recently began to participate in full contact practice with his Washington Wizards squad. Gilbert’s use of the term “Hibachi” began last year during a game that he was scorching the Dallas Mavericks. During this game he began to yell “Hibachi” out with each shot that he took. He used the term to mean that he “was on fire”.
To celebrate Gilbert’s touch from the outside, Adidas linked up with Japanese restaurant, Benihana, to create the “Hibachi” Benihana x Adidas TS Lightswitch GIL II ZERO. Designed to pay homage to both Japanese culture and Gilbert’s jumper, the “Hibachi” GIL II ZERO features a Red Leather upper, a White Patent forefoot strap that reads HIBACHI, Black woven fabric in the toe, midpanel, and ankle, and a Benihana embroidered hit at the outer heel.
The Gilbert Arenas “Hibachi” Benihana x Adidas TS Lightswitch GIL II ZERO is officially set to release on March 23rd at select Adidas accounts in an amount of 1000 pairs worldwide.
