AND1 is looking to reclaim their stake in the basketball world this winter by signing on young endorsers and launching several new models. Lance Stephenson has become the face of AND1 moving forward, and now, his Xcelerate Mid PE finally has a release date.

When Lance isn't rocking the ever popular Tai Chi, you can catch him on court at Hornet's game in these Xcelerate Mid PE's. The shoes feature a higher-cut then most previous AND1 models, and come in the iconic purple and teal Charlotte Hornet's colorway. The Xcelerate Mid features several cut outs through the upper which make the shoes breathable, and more lightweight. If the Hornet's colorway wasn't a dead giveaway for a Stephenson PE, AND1 gave further nod to Lance by incorporating his signature into the insole.

Check out a full picture of Lance's Xcelerate Mid PE's below, and scoop up your pair at AND1 beginning December 19 for $85.
