Devin Booker‘s been doing his thing in the NBA for the past eight years and finally the Phoenix Suns superstar guard is being recognized for his game and has been blessed to have his own signature sneaker line courtesy of Nike.

Well, that’s the rumor. According to SoleRetriever, Nike is ready to bestow Booker with the crowning achievement of having his own signature sneaker after having him down with the company for the past few years. Apparently banking on the hopes that having Kevin Durant on the Suns will bring more exposure to Devin Booker on the global stage, Nike is gearing up for the drop of the Nike D Book 1 which as of now has a tentative release date circling around the holiday season of 2023.

The first colorway of the Nike Book 1 set to release, “Clay Orange,” comes in a Suns-themed clay orange, ice peach, and campfire orange. While design and color placement are unknown at this time, we can expect to see a heavy influence from Booker’s personality and background incorporated into the look. We can also assume it will have the latest and great tech specs Nike has to offer as well. In fact, rumor has it that the reason it took Devin Booker so long to get a signature shoe is that he wanted the most cutting edge technology and materials Nike possessed. With a retail price of $150 for men’s sizes, the Nike Book 1 should definitely have more advanced tech specs compared to Ja Morant’s Nike Ja 1. Which makes sense, Devin Booker is further along in his NBA career than most of Nike’s other signature NBA athletes.

Should the Phoenix Suns actually go on to win the championship this year or next, Nike will have made a spectacular call by finally giving Devin Booker his own signature line at the perfect time. Whether or not D Book is able to move sneakers like a Kobe or Durant remains to be seen but should the model take inspiration from the Kobe Bryant line, it would bold well for him as NBA players love the feel and comfort of those particular silhouettes when they ball on the court.

Don’t expect Bad Bunny or Kendall Jenner to be rocking any D Book’s on their person once the sneakers see the light of day. Just sayin.’
