In 2006, Gary Payton was part of the Miami Heat team that topped Dirk Nowitzki's Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals. The championship ring was the piece missing from a Hall of Fame career that included 9 All-Star selections, 9 All-NBA nods, 9 All-Defensive First Teams and a Defensive Player of the Year Award. Paying tribute to the team GP last suited up for, Nike his releasing his Air Zoom Flight The Glove signature shoe in a new Heat-inspired colorway.
The 'Heat' Glove features a red shrouded upper, branded with a gold outlned black Swoosh. An unzip reveals a grey inner bootie with black money paw tech and yellow stitching.
Word is that we'll see these hit retail as early as next month. Will you be picking up a pair?
