Nike introduced its latest rendition of the special Shox BB4 sneaker model, celebrating the most recent NBA Champions, the Toronto Raptors. The sneakers are named 'Raptors' and are highlighted by the white uppers detailed with red and purple details referencing the team.

The top of the tongue features a silver trimming detail that runs through the edge of the sneaker's collars. The top of the forefoot area starts with the white lacing system held with a striped ripstop at the middle in black, red, and purple. The iconic Raptors logo can be found at the bottom as the sidewalls blend both smooth and textured premium leather materials. Closer to the toe area are some claw marks before the sneaker is rounded out with a bright red heel area, silver rear quarter and the classic Shox midsole.
