words // Nick DePaula:
All season long, New Orleans Pelicans’ franchise player Anthony Davis has been leading the new Air Max Audacity model, and as he heads to Toronto for this year’s NBA All-Star Weekend, Nike Basketball has a themed edition specially made for AD.
Capturing the spirit of his outlandish trademark unibrow, the shoe is highlighted by “FEAR THE BROW” phrasing that wraps the heel’s Air Max unit. You’ll also notice a 3 star patch atop the right tongue very clearly representing this being his 3rd All-Star Game appearance, and a crest icon on the left tongue with yet another unibrow reference.
The upper of the shoe incorporates a black and grey heathered textile graphic, with blue and yellow accents found throughout. The Chicago native’s #23 jersey number can be found printed along the insole.
What do you think of AD’s most detailed Audacity yet?
