Bruce Brown, one of the key role players of the 2023 NBA Champion Denver Nuggets, finally received his hardware on the night of January 14th, 2024. While the Nuggets received their rings on October 25th, Bruce had to wait until his new team, the Indiana Pacers, was scheduled to fly in.
For this momentous, career-defining occasion, Brown came correct with a special pair of sneakers to accept his award. While typically wearing the brand’s modern performance models like the Jordan Luka 2 and the Tatum 2, Bruce chose to unveil an all-silver NIKE◆AIR JORDAN 1 RETRO HIGH OG PINE GREEN 27.5cm 555088-030 PE to befit the significance of the night.
The mudguard and upper are covered in a mirror-like chrome finish, matched with a white interior lining and midsoles. Smoky translucent outsole bottoms, a black metallic Jumpman, and an “11” on the heel decorate the rest of the heartfelt Player Exclusive that will likely go into the display case of Bruce’s home.
The shoes weren’t enough to carry the Pacers to victory as they fell to the defending champions, but it’ll be a day to remember forever. See the gallery of images below.
