The KAWS x Air Jordan 4 is hands down one of 2017’s most revered sneakers thus far. The coveted collaborative shoe between artist Brian Donnelly and the Jordan Brand sold out in milliseconds when it dropped last week, and are of course on the resell market for up to thousands of dollars. The grail release rarely hits the streets let alone the basketball courts. But leave it to Gary Payton II of the Milwaukee Bucks to show them off on court. Up against the Oklahoma City Thunder, 24-year-old Payton II blew every other player’s sneaker game out of the water.

Despite coming off the bench, Payton II led the Bucks in minutes played with 30 and contributed six points while wearing the KAWS x Air Jordan 4. Though it’s not the first time a player has worn limited edition sneakers on the court — Nick Young of the Lakers wore a pair of YEEZY 750s — Payton’s move with the KAWS definitely brought some anxiety to sneakerheads everywhere. Take a look at the video below.
