First it was Raptor championship rings (and Drake bling). Then it was custom-made Raptor jackets courtesy of, who else, Drake (no booing please).
Now it’s Kyle Lowry’s very rare Adidas Raptors championship shoe. Just in time for Christmas. And you can reserve a pair via the Raptors Mobile App starting Sunday, Nov. 17 at 9:00 a.m. EST.
Celebrating our historic Championship run in style.

The price? Still unknown.
“The design is crazy I wouldn’t have even thought about it, I would love to wear them, but they are so precious,” said Lowry, perhaps the greatest Raptor player ever, in describing the shoes.

Lowry announced on social media that the Raptors championship shoe would be on sale soon. And it’s going to cost a lot. Also, only 613 shoes are being sold to commemorate the day that Raptors won it all -,June 13th, 2019.
In the short clip, we learn that limited-edition shoes are customized and feature every Raptors score from their championship season, April to June. Lowry, who is currently out of the lineup with a hand injury, took to social media to share a promotional video for the shoes.
No word whether NBA fashion icon Serge Ibaka approved the design.
