23 NBA Players customized their pairs for Opening Week

Posted on Oct 22, 2019 in Nike


Aren’t you glad we’re starting another NBA season in less than 24 hours? After releasing some sick Opening Week colorways for their signature athletes, Nike’s doing something special with their new athletes. If you recall last season, Nike tapped nine rookies and sophomores to create custom designs by the Nike By You (formerly NikeID) platform. This season, they’ve tapped 23 players using four signature silhouettes – the KYRIE 5, KD12, PG3 and the Zoom Freak 1. Here’s a rundown of what the players designed and you’ll be able to purchase them through as well (unfortunately, not in the PH just yet).
