Introducing a rather unorthodox manner of tying the knot, Denver Nuggets’ Center Nikola Jokic embosses his Nike GT Jump Player Exclusive (PE) with a familiar touch of silverware. In anticipation of their Finals matchup against the surging underdog-Miami Heat, the back-to-back Most Valuable Player (MVP)integrates his wedding band into his sneaker, secured near the eyelet of the pair.

Hearing bell chimes in October 2020, the Joker wedded his high school sweetheart, Natalija, and the couple welcomed their first child, Ognjena, a year later. Departing back to Serbia in the off-seasons, his display of endearment captures his passionate love for his family, bringing the memento to battle. Jokic mentioned having drawn influence from a former Serbian teammate, as the unorthodox showcase promotes something subtle yet immensely impactful.
Seeing the Jokic’s triple-double debut on the grandest stage, the Serbian-titan looks to chase his second ring, with the former cemented on his Nike GT Jump PE, with Joker easter-eggs populating the upper. The silhouette is recognizable for its responsive cushioning system—merging double-stacked Zoom Air with a PEBAX® external jump frame of lightweight, springy, and strong components.
