Nike Teases Wemby’s”Alien” Sneaker On Day Of The Total Eclipse

Updated April 8th, 2024: Nike just teased the upcoming GT Hustle 2 “Alien” on Instagram with a video of Victor Wembanyama’s logo mimicking crop circles in a field in South Texas.

With the 2024 NBA regular season coming to a close, we can firmly say that Victor Wembanyama, the first overall pick by the San Antonio Spurs in the 2023 NBA Draft, is living up to the hype. With the height matched by only a handful of players in league history and the ability to move and shoot like a swingman, Wemby’s all-around talent and package is unprecedented, but also indicative of the future of the NBA’s position-less game.

Nike saw the potential in Wemby immediately, signing the 7’4″ center to a contract before the season even started. Throughout his first campaign, the Frenchman has been sporting the Zoom GT Hustle 2 as well as the GT Run, the former being the successor to the latter.

First revealed during the 2024 All-Star Weekend, Wemby’s Nike Zoom GT Hustle 2 “Alien” will indeed end up hitting retail. It sports an out-of-this-world detailing with a black/green mudguard pattern mimicking deep space, glow-in-the-dark outsoles,  and “Be Unique Every Day” printed in elegant cursive below the foot-bed. Metallic chrome appears via the Swoosh logo and the Alien-shaped plaques at the heel.

Currently, a release is not yet known, but we suspect Nike will drop these soon as Wemby’s in-game action will come to a close in just a few weeks.

In other Nike hoops news, the Book 1 “Haven” is set to drop on Saturday, April 6th.
