The Air Jordan XX8 Locked and Loaded is part of the Nike Champions Think 16 Collection inspired by Ray Allen’s clutch three pointer during the 2013 Finals.
Dressed in a Black, Metallic Gold and White color scheme. This Air Jordan XX8 is highlighted with a “9” on the lateral side and “5” on the other side as a nod to the 95 total points the Heat scored in their Game 6 victory over the San Antonio Spurs.
There’s nothing synonymous between a Ray Allen three and the word miracle. Though it looked like a mad scramble when the rock pin-balled its way to the corner with just a few seconds remaining in Game 6 of the 2013 Finals, Allen, the consummate sharp-shooter, spent his whole life preparing for this moment. His game-tying three shifted the momentum of the entire series, fueling the Heat to a back-to-back title and cementing his everlasting legacy into the city of Miami as a savior.
