Anyone can claim that they’re a sneakerhead, but if we’re measuring by pure volume and overall rarity, few have quite the collection like PJ Tucker. He’s dabbled into the realm of sneaker collaborations before as he dropped a special Kobe 5 Protro PE with Nike in 2020, but now he’s venturing into the luxury footwear space for a two-piece Miami capsule with Dolce & Gabbana.
The scrappy Milwaukee Bucks small forward and the Italian luxury label have crafted two iterations of the lifestyle model, one of which is a bold “Sicilian Orange” makeup. Upper halves are completely built with a premium suede and come drenched in its nominal tone. Bright yellow accents follow suit by dropping onto the skate shoe-esque laces, the Dolce and Gabbana banner on the mid-foot and Tucker’s signature on the tongues and heels. Semi-chunky midsoles — that are reminiscent of Rihanna’s PUMA Creepers — are also painted in orange and come styled with ribbed textures at the heels and forefoot and a smooth block in the middle.
The second iteration in this pack falls on more neutral side of the color wheel. Most of the suede uppers are coated with a dusty brown tone at the mid-foot while various shades of beige overlays sit adjacent. Tucker’s signatures also land in the same spots but come stitched in white. Down below, the sole units keep the tonal motif going by also getting outfitted in beige.
“Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have always shown me nothing but love”, PJ Tucker says. “Their support of me and their trust in me throughout this process has been incredible. Collaborating on the design of this sneaker has been amazing and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do.”
100 pairs signed by P. J. Tucker that are also paired to an exclusive NFT are available now on the Dolce and Gabbana site.
