Houston Rockets forward P.J. Tucker recently took to Instagram to debut a bespoke version of Virgil Abloh’s Nike Hyperdunk sneaker, customized by The Shoe Surgeon.
Sheeeesh!!! ??♂️??♂️??♂️ when a vision comes together.. teamwork makes the dream work @theshoesurgeon you are a beast my friend ?????
Where Abloh’s original take on the high-performance court shoe was all-white, Tucker’s version sports a bright red upper, in honor of the Rockets’ team colors, with The Shoe Surgeon’s branding on the tongue.

While Tucker has yet to wear the kicks to an official NBA game, he has previously worn mega-hyped shoes — like the Nike Air Yeezy 2 — on the court, so don’t be surprised if you see these make an official NBA debut in the near future.
