PJ Tucker of the Houston Rockets has been known over the years for being one of if not the biggest sneakerhead in the NBA. Over the years, Tucker has balled out in some rare heat, all while showing up to the games in some even rarer gems. Thanks to his reputation as a sneakerhead, Tucker has been able to get his hands on some releases early and the latest Nike & Fear Of God collaboration is no exception. On Saturday, Tucker pulled up to the arena with the Nike Air Fear Of God 1 in the brand new “Orange Pulse” colorway.
This colorway is much louder than the more muted versions of the sneaker that have released so far. A loud pastel orange dressed the entire upper, with the blue Zoom unit being the only part of the shoe to feature a different color. These have not yet been released but are expected to drop in the summer for $350 USD.
The new kicks must have been a good luck charm for Tucker as the Rockets went on to win their game 126-121. He led everyone in the game with 12 rebounds as the Rockets were able to soften the Warriors lead in the series to 2-1.
