This week, the Toronto Raptors debuted a camouflage uniform as part of their annual Canadian Forces Appreciation Night. Wednesday's contest against the Chicago Bulls marked the first time a team has ever worn a camouflage jersey during a game. To go along with the Canadian Forces uniforms, Li-Ning created this special camouflage colorway of the Yu Shuai VII for Raptors point guard Jose Calderon.
A wearer of the Yu Shuai series since its inception, Calderon's Player Exclusive features a white leather upper with digicam print on the toebox. medial side panel and heel. Jose's jersey number "8" also appears along the medial side, while his official logo appears on the tongue. Printed on the insole is the Raptors' team logo in green, while Military Green hits on the laces and outsole provide the finishing touch.
Below is a detailed look at the "Canadian Forces" Yu Shuai VII.
