Canadian tennis star Milos Raonic is about to hit the court this weekend in Toronto. Coming off a hot performance in Australia where he made it to the semi-finals, Milos is taking his game to the hardwood on Saturday night where he'll be playing ball with fellow celebs during All-Star weekend. For his hoops debut, Milos will be rocking this unique special make-up shoe.
We had our design team take his signature tennis shoe, the 996, and create a mid-cut silhouette to better fit his game on the basketball court. "It's very special and meaningful to me. To take a current tennis shoe and make it a hybrid premium shoe for the basketball court is very innovative," said Milos.
Milos told our designers he likes bright colors to stand out from the crowd so we picked bright cherry as the base color of the upper. The shoe boasts a translucent iced outsole with a crackle back print as well as the Canada Maple Leaf graphic on the heel to pay homage to his roots.
