NBA’s 68th Anniversary Shoe Is A Red, White And Blue Salute

Hold on to your hats, sneakerheads, because the NBA is rolling out a special, limited edition 68th anniversary shoe. The red, white and blue kicks will be released on June 6, with only 1,946 pairs being made available. The date marks the first game officially played by the NBA. The New York Nickerbockers and Toronto Huskies tipped the league off at Maple Leaf Gardens. At the time the league was known as the BAA, but it would absorb the NBL in 1949 and become known as the NBA.

If the shoes weren’t enough to entice you, maybe the beautiful box they come in will tempt you to open up your wallet.
