Also part of the upcoming Nike Basketball Art Of A Champion Collection is the Nike Air Maestro II Trifecta. This release celebrates Scottie Pippen’s triple-double during the 1993 NBA Finals. Pippen was rocking the Nike Air Maestro II during Game 2 of the 1993 NBA Finals against the Suns when he decided to take over the game and become only the 12th player to to record a triple-double during an NBA Finals game. Not only did he throw down a 15-12-12 stat line, he also blocked and recovered Danny Ainge’s potential game tying three-point shot.

The shoe comes dressed in a University Red, White, and Black color scheme which went hand in hand with the Bulls jersey Pippen was wearing. Red and Black leather and nubuck take care of the majority of the upper and sole, while hits of White can be seen on the Swoosh branding and tongue branding.

The  Trifecta will release on May 10th for the retail price of $140.
