Ray Allen’s Miami Heat didn’t quite get the outcome they were looking for in last nights Game 1 loss to San Antonio in the NBA Finals, but the long-time Jordan Brand athlete did get his own collection of player exclusive footwear from Jumpman.
As Allen continues the quest for his second ring, Jordan Brand has outfitted the veteran with championship-inspired versions of the Air Jordan XX8. For the remainder of the series, Allen will have several special edition options of the AJ XX8 to choose from. For home games, he has the choice between White/Black/Gold or White/Red/Gold. On the road, Allen can choose between Black/Gold or Red/Gold—both of which feature an elephant print on the upper.
Allen’s special edition colorways are some of the best we’ve seen thus far of the Air Jordan XX8. You may not be able to see beneath the zippered-up silhouette, but along with good looks, the shoe packs a bevy of performance elements such as Jordan Flight Plate, and Zoom cushioning units, to give players the best of form and function on the hardwood.
