Now that Brandon Jennings’ rookie season is in its final month or so, the secret is out that the Compton product (by way of Europe) has a future as a dynamic point guard in the NBA, with the potential to be a superstar. Do his Under Armour sneakers possess the same promise? We’ve seen a number of Jennings appearances in Kicks On Court, but the looks at his shoes in detail have been limited. This Prototype 2, which could potentially release later this year, has surfaced on eBay though, giving us a closer look at and a potential piece of NBA and sneaker collector history.
This pair itself was worn following the rookie’s record-setting 55 point performance weeks after. The “Double Nickel” nickname and tongue embroidery stems from that game, though these were worn in a later game against the Cavs. The upper is white perforated leather, which matches the rubber outsole. Red patent leather wraps over the toe and around the base of the toe. A silver number 3 can be seen near the heel. These extremely rare UA kicks can be grabbed on eBay now.
