As the country’s top 24 players battle it out later today in the longtime celebrated McDonald’s All American Game, you can expect to see a mix of player exclusive sneakers hitting the hardwood.
In addition to signature models like James Harden’s Vol. 2 and Damian Lillard’s Dame 4, hoopers will also have the brand’s Boost-powered Crazy Explosive at their disposal. Made in both light grey and black base colors, each pair is set off by red and yellow accents throughout, with the game’s wordmark spotted along the heel taping.
The unis for the game feature a streamlined design this year and 3M reflective lettering on both front and back. Highlighted by “Class of 2018” badging on the inner neckline, you’ll also find each player’s native home state outline along the back neck.
Check out the 2018 McDonald’s All American game away jersey, along with both colorways of the Crazy Explosive PEs that players will be lacing up in tonight’s game. You can catch the Girl’s All American Game on ESPN2 and the Watch ESPN App at 5 PM EST, with the 41st annual Boy’s All American Game following at 7 PM on ESPN.
