Profile

As AND 1 creeps back to the basketball industry, the brand re-releases the Tai Chi, Alpha, M2, and Boom series. Designed by Dallas Stokes, the AND 1 Boom got its inspiration from fighter jets, bomb drops, and Lance Stephenson’s performance on the court. These kicks are made of mesh with overlays to make them durable and lightweight. To prevent ankle rolls, the sides of the AND 1 Boom feature raised thermoplastic polyurethane fingers that make the shoe a lot more stable.
