Nike Sends Isaiah Thomas a Kobe A.D. Mid Honouring His Late Sister
His LA Lakers may be sitting out of this year’s NBA Playoffs, but Isaiah Thomas is still taking Ws, albeit a bitter sweet one. Thomas recently shared a gift from Nike via Instagram — a special pair of Kobe A.D. Mid PEs honouring his late sister, Chyna, who tragically passed away in a car accident in 2017.
The shoe’s upper features black and yellow butterfly-graphic print, with Chyna's name embroidered on the back of the tongue. A shiny, iridescent Swoosh and an icy, translucent sole complete these commemorative creps.
We hope the heartfelt one-of-one gift brings some inspiration to Thomas and the Lakers once they kick off their 2018/19 season.
