Rising NBA superstar Ben Simmons knows that earning the #1 overall draft pick, the Rookie of the Year award, and two All-Star selections isn’t something that is easily obtained. It takes a tremendous amount of long hours in the gym, discipline on and off the floor, and a self-motivated mentality to perform at the highest level night in and night out. So for the Swoosh’s forthcoming “Pregame Pack”, they’re honoring the Sixers’ point guard/small forward’s competitive mindset through a specially crafted version of the Nike Blazer Mid ’77. Appropriately dubbed the “Motivation”, this rendition comes constructed with cracked-suede uppers color-blocked between grey backgrounds and yellow Swoosh logos, which opens up the doors for the text-based embellishments to take front and center. The lateral panels arrive lasered with the words “Pride and Passion” falling against the outline of a basketball, while the heel panels split between tonal engravings of the words “Dedication” and “Motivation”. Moreover, the footbeds are adorned with a collage of various graphics including that of heart silhouettes, “Mom” texts, doves, and more. Capture a detailed look at the pair here below, and find these dropping at House of Hoops locations and online at FootLocker.com come May 21st.
