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 talents to the hardwood this time. Thats right, he'll be shooting hoops against fellow celebs during All-Star weekend and he'll 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. 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. It 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.
While, this 996 is not technically a basketball shoe, rather a mid-cut version of his tennis shoe, we are expecting Milos to bring the heat on the court.
