Rejoice Jordan fans! In celebration of one of the NBA’s most prolific pure shooter’s and Jordan Brand athlete, Ray Allen, Jordan is finally delivering a retail release of an Air Jordan 7 ‘Bucks’ PE. Apart from being one of the league’s most revered shooters from deep, Ray has always been known for his extensive selection of rare Player Edition (PE) Jordan’s in the sneaker community. At every stop in Ray Allen’s career, from the Milwaukee Bucks, Seattle Supersonics, Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat, anticipation was built on not only laying witness to his silky smooth jumper, but what special edition PE sneakers he would adorn on court. With each PE created with the team’s signature colours, this ‘Bucks’ PE calls back the 90’s and early 00’s hues of the team, where Ray first began to make his mark on the league.
Also known by his on-screen alias, Jesus Shuttlesworth, copping one of Ray Allen’s PE’s at retail has never been anything more than a fantasy. With Jordan coming through with the goods for this release, no detail has been spared in bringing back the nostalgic tones of the sweet-shooting two guard’s game. Jumping straight into the away-colours, a premium black nubuck serves as the base, with Milwaukee’s rich purple, grey and forest green hues appearing on the midsole, heel and collar. Classic geometric lines also bring Bucks’ styling at the neoprene tongue and bootie, for a snug and secure fit. Completed in true Ray Allen fashion, Allen’s signature PE logo and signature appears on the in-sole.
Look for this re-worked piece of nostalgia to pull up at JD Sports on the 1st of June.
