Houston Rockets’ P.J. Tucker is back with some more heat for the hardwood. Known to rock some rare kicks in games, he’s ready to help his squad take a 2-1 series advantage over the Golden State Warriors with a special pair customized by The Shoe Surgeon. The two use the Virgil Abloh x Nike REACT Hyperdunk 2017 as the canvas and dip it in red to match the Rockets’ uniforms. The Flyknit portion receives white accents as Abloh’s signature orange tab returns on the lateral Swoosh. The “AIR” stamp on its REACT cushioning is done in black as the shifted Nike Air branding on the tongue is swapped for The Shoe Surgeon’s logo.

Take a look at the finished project and let us know how it compares to the original. You can also check out the Warriors’ Draymond Green don the original pair on-court and P.J. Tucker’s episode on Sneaker Shopping.
