After being on a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Art Basel Miami was finally brought back to life. It’s been quite the eventful week down in South Beach as Virgil Abloh’s last Lous Vuitton collection was presented, various artists and high-profile celebs launched special NFTs and more, and now Chrome Hearts is getting in on the action with the unveiling of its newest basketball hoop piece.

According to the LA-base brand’s IG, the backboard and pole are engineered with a highly sustainable and recyclable aluminum. The former is intricately hand carved, and comes engraved with various Chrome Hearts symbols from its signature banner logo to crosses to stars. The rim arrives in its traditional orange hue and is accompanied by a sterling silver net — a more elevated version of your local street court’s chain net. The base of the court looks to be built in the form of a cement block and comes adorned with oversized crosses on each side. A white mural sits in the background of this hoops piece’s exhibition, and it’s designed with all-over blue cross patterns.

There’s no word if this will ever see a retail release, but you can check out a closer look here in the meantime.
