Nike Commemorate the World's Oldest Basketball CourtRelease: 10 June 2018
Basketball may have been invented in Massachusetts in the winter of 1891, but the oldest court is actually the Trévise gym in Paris. And to celebrate its place in basketball history, Nike are releasing a duo of Dunks inspired by the 125-year-old playing surface.
The two ballers are dressed in leather that's textured like the gym’s herringbone floorboards, coming in brown and tan iterations. The little details aren't overlooked either: gold heel tabs nod to Trévise’s unpickable lock and string laces hark back to the court’s woven nets.
There is a catch: only 200 of each are being made and they’ll drop exclusively at SNKRS Paris. So, if you’re in the area, head down on June 10 to nab a pair.
