ADDENDUM: We were recently able to conclusively photo-match these shoes to six games during the 2019-20 season.

Offered here is a pair of 2019-20 Devin Booker game worn and dual-signed Nike ‘Kobe IV Protro’ player exclusive basketball shoes. This Nike/Kobe model has been extremely popular throughout the NBA since its release.The sharp-shooting guard has been the Phoenix Suns' go-to player since he was drafted in 2015 out of Kentucky. He In 2017, he became the youngest in NBA history to score 60 points in a game when he dropped 70 in a losing effort to the Celtics -- the most of any NBA player since Kobe's 81. The past two seasons, Booker has averaged an impressive 26.6. points with over four rebounds and nearly seven assists per game and he made his first NBA All-Star team this past February. At the "Orlando Bubble" Booker's Suns were the only team to go undefeated (8-0), falling just shy of a playoff spot.

The white mid-top sneakers with bright orange accents and a purple Swoosh logo exhibit obvious game use with creasing, scuffing and light staining. The distinctive crease lines combined with Nike's unique spot pattern design on the midsole cushioning have given us conclusive evidence to photo-match them to six games (Suns went 3-3) including:

11/10/19 vs. Nets -- 27 pts, 9 assists, 2 rebounds (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/the-sneakers-of-the-devin-booker-of-the-phoenix-suns-during-news-photo/1181741570?adppopup=true - right shoe)

12/2/19 at Hornets -- 23 points, 4 assists, 4 rebounds, 1 steal (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/detailed-view-of-the-shoes-worn-by-devin-booker-of-the-news-photo/1191569133?adppopup=true - left shoe)

12/4/19 at Magic -- 17 pts, 5 assists, 3 rebounds (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/detail-of-devin-booker-of-the-phoenix-suns-shoes-prior-to-news-photo/1191976402?adppopup=true - left shoe)

12/5/19 at Pelicans-- 44 points, 9 assists, 8 rebounds, 2 steals (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/the-sneakers-of-devin-booker-of-the-phoenix-suns-are-worn-news-photo/1186651913?adppopup=true - left shoe)

12/7/19 at Rockets-- 35 points, 5 assists, 4 rebounds, 1 steal (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/the-sneakers-worn-by-devin-booker-of-the-phoenix-suns-news-photo/1187049638?adppopup=true - left shoe)

Properly tagged on the interior ("PROMO 20190704" and "SEASON FA19"), they come in size 14.5 with Kobe's number 24 stamped on the outer heels and Mamba's Sheath logo on the tongues. The insoles have been removed, presumably for the player's custom-fitted orthotics, but all other elements including the laces remain all-original. Booker has autographed the toe of each shoe in 9-10/10 black permanent marker, giving them superb eye appeal. This has to be the best pair of Booker gamers to hit the open market.

Inludes Beckett COA’s for eac autograph (Cert #'s T71075 & T71076) and a letter of provenance from a former Knicks ball boy.
