Taking us on the ultimate trip down memory lane, veteran swingman Jerry Stackhouse laced up his original FILA Stackhouse signature shoe in the Brooklyn Nets' lopsided 107-68 win over the Orlando Magic last night. Raising a few eyebrows, Stack was effective off the bench, scoring 11 points, grabbing two boards and dishing out an assist in just 10 minutes of action.
Jerry's outing in the Stackhouse follows a few teasers of a possible retro drop in the months ahead. The model was originally released in1995 and sadly made a brief return as the "Spaghetti" in 2007. Now, with Jerry apparently back in the fold, we may see what he's calling a "Vintage Collection" re-release of the Stack in the near future.
Stackhouse has spent the last several years of his career (and Brooklyn's first few games this season) wearing adidas. According to sources, Stackhouse's partnership with adi is non-exclusive, freeing him to wear whatever he wants to this season.
Below, a game shot of Jerry wearing the Stackhouse, a close look at the "Brooklyn Away" colorway he wore and a few vintage visuals for you to check out. We'll continue to follow this story as it develops.
