New Nike Aaron Gordon Orlando Magic inspired shoe: AlphaDunk Pure Magic

Thought some of you might want to cop it. It's $170 though so a little hefty price-wise. It looks nice though!

They look nice! I'm not a fan of the bubble at the front, but the rest is nice and not too ostentatious.

My fav pair of basketball shoes were the Garnett 3's (I think?). These kind of remind me of those.

Love these. Good for AG too. He always shows us love and he’s being recognized as a marketable guy. Hoping he continues to pick up endorsements.

they made this for Luka Doncic and yet create something so simple and pretty much ugly for Gordon? :o

Why just not roll with some jumping/air/gravity gimmick while making them like this

Image

blue, white and black are probably the easiest colors to combine to get really dope look...

Those are made by independant sneaker customisers, not by Nike. This is just a different colorway of a shoe.

Not really a High-Top type of guy, also not a Nike guy either, but those are nice. It just pains me to pay that much for Shoes.

Not bad for his first shoe endorsement debut. Solid color scheme representation. I normally like the bubble on the back for heel cushion purposes. Hopefully AG's shoe game will sell well.

Just to clarify, it's not an AG signature shoe. Just a colorway of a Nike basketball shoe inspired by his dunk contest performance. Really it's just an Orlando Magic colorway of a shoe.

Yeah, just inspired by his dunk contest/homage to him/the Magic. But still, impressive that the Magic get any love. :lol:
