In case you missed it, the 2018-2019 NBA season is officially underway. In celebration of the return of hoops, Nike previously chose nine players in the NBA and WNBA’s rookie and sophomore classes to design their own custom sneakers to wear opening week. The collaboration comes as the NBA recently did away with its sneaker restrictions, now allowing players to wear whatever colors they want in games.

“I think it’s dope that the League is letting us wear different colorways this year,” says Golden State Warriors power forward Jordan Bell. “For me, It’s like the NFL giving their own players freedom to celebrate. Players can let their style and swag show while also telling a chapter of their story with each pair of shoes.”

Alongside Bell, Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Collin Sexton, Sacramento Kings point guard De'Aaron Fox, New York Knicks point guard Frank Ntilikina, Boston Celtics small forward Jayson Tatum, Los Angeles Lakers power forward Kyle Kuzma, Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Dončić, Indiana Fever point guard Kelsey Mitchell, and Las Vegas Aces point guard Kelsey Plum each designed their own kicks via NIKEiD. Featured silhouettes include the Kyrie 4, Kobe AD, KD11, PG2, and Kyrie Low.

After getting a look at the opening-week PEs from nine of the NBA and WNBA's most promising young stars, follow on over to Nike for more details on the project.
