Jordan Brand couldn’t have selected a better athlete than Ray Allen to represent the brand after Michael’s first retirement from the game. Officially the longest-tenured Jordan Brand athlete, Ray Allen’s got a resume of achievements that live up to the Jordan standard – from winning championships, earning Gold at the international level, and setting all-time records that likely won’t be touched for decades. One of the last Player Exclusives with his first team (well, technically the second), this Milwaukee Bucks Player Exclusive of the Air Jordan XVII features ‘RAY 34’ embroidered onto the ankle collar with a rich purple midsole (it looks like the OG College Blue) to match the Bucks uniforms. Not very unlike the USAB PE of the XVII, but these are up in true auction fashion so test your bidding luck by checking out the listing from srr1175 on eBay.
I loved the 17... It was pretty popular when it came out... I wish they would retro them but I could do without the case, I think it would make them too expensive... I also really love the 17+ but I doubt we will ever see those again.
This has nothing to do with these kicks, but I'm watching the McDonald all American game on espn and someone near the west bench is wearing the white SVSM Lebron 9s. Just thought SN would look into that..
Dont worry about the price,JB will find a way to keep the price the same by using crappy leather! TRUTH!
Cant wait to see a retro of the XVII College Blues, Reds and Chromes will all be copped. I can do witout the case. The boxes and everything are nice jus i jus want the shoes put em in a cardboard box for all I care lol, might up the price by 30-50 for the case and the dvd ha ha
LOL... u right bout that price increase. But its jus sumthin bout havin a suitcase wit yo kicks in them.. jus makes them fancy lol
