At the start of the 2018-19 NBA season, Nike announced that Vince Carter would be wearing the iconic Nike Shox BB4 throughout the year, and he has brought back a number of classic colorways from the early 2000s.

V.C. has also laced up some never before seen colorways, such as the exclusive "Toronto Raptors" PE he laced up during Wednesday night's game against the San Antonio Spurs.

Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that Nike has plans to release this "Raptors" PE, or any of the other dope colorways that V.C. has laced up throughout this season.

According to Nike, the Shox BB4’s look was informed by its space age concept. A rocket and booster-like appearance was prepped for blastoff and served to amplify the explosive potential of the columns. The upper was designed for intergalactic exploration, too, as designer Eric Avar and the others at mission control researched astronaut apparel.

“The upper was inspired from some space suits at the time. We kept it simple and understated, but modern with a slight iridescence and reflectivity,” Avar says.
