Ray Allen has accomplished two of the most highly coveted achievements you could ask for as an NBA player. Not only is he an NBA Champion, he’s also a Hall of Famer. To celebrate the latter, the Jordan Brand family gifted Ray with a huge Black and Gold Air Jordan trunk housing four sets of Air Jordan sneakers that have a huge significance in Ray Allen’s career. Those shoes are the Air Jordan 16 in a Milwaukee Bucks PE colorway. This one is special because it was worn by Ray Allen during his first-ever Three-Point contest win and second NBA All-Star Game. The Air Jordan 20 is inspired by Ray Allen’s time as a Seattle Supersonic. The third pair is a mismatched combination that includes the Air Jordan 9 and Air Jordan 11. These two retros were matched up because because they pay homage to the 2008 NBA Finals where Ray ended up swapping shoes during a pre-game shootaround. Last but not least, the Air Jordan 28 was the shoe that Ray was wearing when he drained the corner three against the Spurs during the NBA Finals that not only extended the series, but also ended up being the turning of the series in which the Miami Heat ended up winning the NBA Championship. Ray Allen even took the time to unbox the trunk full of sneakers on his IG to show all his followers the box full of goodies. The set was  presented to him by Jordan Brand employee (long-time friend) Gentry Humphrey. Congrats on an amazing NBA career Ray. Salute!
