This Footwear Pack Highlights Pregame Rituals from Luka Dončić, De'Aaron Fox and More

April 28, 2020 - How an athlete prepares to play is a matter of personal preference. Some famously toss chalk, others meticulously mark midsoles with motivational phrases. Point guard De'Aaron Fox of the Sacramento Kings, guard Ben Simmons of the Philadelphia 76ers, guard Luka Dončić of the Dallas Mavericks and center Brittney Griner of the Phoenix Mercury each have their rituals too. Their musts are highlighted in the new Pregame Pack, a collection of Nike and Jordan Brand silhouettes.

Air Jordan 1 Mid: Mindfulness (Luka Dončić)
A cool, tranquil palette of greens and violets characterizes the upper. Both heels feature the opaque phrases, "Breathe & Center" and "Center & Breathe."

The Air Jordan I Mid releases April 30 at House of Hoops by Foot Locker, footlocker.com and nike.com.

Nike Air Force 1: Music (De'Aaron Fox and Brittney Griner)
Outlined in Neptune Green, the Swoosh and the heel tab feature a lenticular design inspired by acoustic waveforms. An amplified design, using hotter reds and yellows, appears on the lateral forefoot and on the sockliner.

The Nike Air Force 1 releases May 14 at House of Hoops by Foot Locker and online at footlocker.com.

Nike Blazer Mid ’77: Motivation (Ben Simmons)
The suede, cracked-gray upper is the canvas for two graphics and phrases on the shoe's lateral side — "Heart in the Game" on one, and "Pride & Passion" on the other. "Dedication" and "Motivation" read on the back heel tabs.

The Nike Blazer Mid ’77 releases May 21 at House of Hoops by Foot Locker and online at footlocker.com.
