Last week, we brought you news of a missive 16-piece footwear collection from Jordan Brand, Nike, and Converse that aims to celebrate excellence in the NBA Playoffs. Now, Nike, Inc. has officially unveiled this retro capsule with both renderings and actual images as well as official release information of all 16 sneakers – with one still left a mystery and slated to be defined by this year’s NBA Champion. Dubbed both the “Champions Think 16” and the “Art Of A Champion”collection, a group of sixteen artists have created their own interpretations of sixteen timeless performances in NBA Playoff history that have stood out and helped make these athletes the champions they are known as today. A Zoom Kobe 1 Protro will start the collection off on April 14th, and it will conclude with the Air Jordan 14 “Last Shot” on June 14th. Grab a look at all 16 artist interpretations below and stay tuned for more updates as they are made available. In the meantime, you can read more about each individual sneaker on Nike SNKRS here.
