To celebrate Ray Allen‘s induction into the 2018 Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, Jordan Brand has created a set of 4 PE sneakers mirroring those worn by Allen at various stages of his basketball career. Starting off with his early years playing for the Milwaukee Bucks, following his tenure with the Seattle Supersonics and finally finishing with championships games for the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat, the footwear all includes Hall of Fame branding along the sockliners and team info on the tongue.
The Air Jordan XVI PE, XX PE, IX and XI PEs, as well as the XX8 PE are all referenced in the individual pairs above, as Allen wore the brand almost entirely throughout his basketball career. Jordan’s Gentry Humphrey personally stopped by to deliver the models in a one-of-a-kind trunk bearing Allen and the Hall of Fame’s logos on the inside. Take a closer look through the gallery above and Allen’s Instagram post below:
