Rui Hachimura starts the new season wearing the Air Jordan XXXV in exclusive player edition (PE) styles. This year’s pairs evolve from last year’s PEs, which paid tribute to his team and heritage. Of what’s important to him in a game shoe, Rui says: “I move a lot, so I need my performance shoe to be comfortable and light. Having Air Jordan XXXIV PEs in my first year was big for me, and now I’m excited about the XXXV.”
Here is a running list that’s being updated throughout the season.
