After playing an illustrious 22 seasons in the league, Vince Carter is certainly going to go down in the history books as one of the greatest NBA players to ever set foot on the hardwood. And while he didn’t quite get the storybook ending and standing ovations he deserved, Nike has decided to celebrate the hoops veteran with a Raptors-inspired colorway of his Shox BB4 as a proper send off.

Essentially an alternate version of the white colorway that debuted back in August 2019, this forthcoming pair composes its upper with black leathers that deviate in textures between smooth on the heightened panels and tumbled on the lower half. For the latter, you’ll notice that a nod to the Toronto franchise is graphically executed as tonal claw decorations rest along the lateral/medial walls. Accents are found down the throat/heels which feature three-toned striped banners that alternate in Raptors team colors, as well as on the Shox pistons which are treated with “Court Purple” exteriors. For loyal “Air Canada” fans thinking about adding these to your collection, you can expected them to drop in select Asia retailers on June 15th, but sit tight as stateside drop on Nike.com is likely to occur in the coming weeks.

For other news, here’s a store list for the upcoming Tie Dye Jordan 1.
