If you’re a fan of video games and basketball, you’re going to want to get your hands on this new gaming-inspired Under Armor basketball shoe.
The Baltimore-based company teamed up with New York Knicks baller Dennis Smith Jr. to create a custom Anatomix Spawn colorway inspired by the basketball player’s left-hand hesitation move and his favorite Mortal Kombat character’s ability to freeze his opponents.
The shoe, which coincides with the return of the popular video game’s latest installment yesterday, features a navy and blue upper inspired by Sub-Zero’s armored vest, as well as frozen-looking accents and an icy insole with Mortal Kombat’s logo.
“This custom colorway of the UA Anatomix Spawn brings my love for Mortal Kombat and Sub-Zero to life, and I’m excited to share it with players who also share my same gaming passion,” said the point guard.
The UA Anatomix Spawn MK11 Sub-Zero will release in limited quantities Friday on Underarmour.com. Additionally, Under Armour and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will host a special pop-up event for fans at sneaker retailer Bait in Los Angeles today at 7 p.m. PT.
