Buzz Rickson’s Updates Their Repro Sneakers for Rain-Ready Dunking

Buzz Rickson’s, among the upper crust of brands who re-issue military garments and accessories to exacting standards—occasionally exceeding those of the originals—have updated their US Government Issue basketball sneaker. This special water-resistant, yet fully breathable, edition is made with a Ventile fabric upper that’s perfect for those days where you’ll be damned if a little rain is going to get between you and perfecting your corner three-pointer.

The Japanese-made pair offers anodized steel eyelets with 100% cotton laces and natural rubber soles which even include mid-sole glue markings. I wonder if Zion Williamson’s Nike’s could have used some mid-sole glue markings.

Available for $250 at Self Edge.
