You know him is number 17 for the Houston Rockets, but he is also known as one of the biggest sneaker heads around. PJ Tucker is now taking his love for shoes to the next level by teaming up with Giuseppe Zanotti and releasing his first sneaker, the Urchin Rocks.
"It's pretty cool to see something that you dreamed up and kinda just worked on for a while and then to actually see it come to life is pretty cool," PJ says.
The release was held at Giuseppe Zanotti in the Rice District and was complete with champagne, cigars and, of course, basketball.
He had lockers set up and gifted all of his teammates from the Houston Rockets a brand new pair of Urchins.
PJ says he’s always had a thing for fashion and shoes, even as a kid
"Well I love sneakers so it was always like Air Jordans when I was really, really young. Once I got older a little bit, you know it always gets a little bit different, you mature a little bit. But Air Jordans when I was kid, I just had to have them back in the day."
PJ says he hasn't counted how many shoes he has since 2011 when that number was over 4,000 shoes. He’s got such an impressive exclusive collection that in 2016, he even made Michael Jordan wonder, where did you get those?
The price of the shoe is $950 and comes in red, black, orange and white.
