It’s safe to say Nike appreciated Drake’s “Checks over stripes” line in “SICKO MODE” because he’s been #TeamEarly on Swoosh exclusives ever since.
After rocking the Supreme x Nike Rugby Hoody in the Eastern Conference Finals, Drake showed up at Game 1 of the NBA Finals in a Nike Shox BB4 that we figured only him and Vince Carter had.
This Raptors rendition was very similar to pairs sported by Vinsanity this season in Atlanta, proving this is a 2018-19 production rather than a vault pair. After all, we saw what happened when PJ Tucker broke out OG BB4s from 2001.
On top of that, VC is a size 16 while the internet pegs Drizzy as rocking somewhere between an 11 and a 13. Could Toronto’s own Aubrey Graham be a part of the BB4 retro relaunch? Champagne with the campaign? We’re not mad at it.
Well, neither is Nike.
We now know this Raptors rendition will be releasing to the public.
