PJ Tucker of the Houston Rockets, known for the NBA’s best shoe collection, will open a sneaker shop in Houston later this year.
Tucker shared the good news with Nice Kickks last week during the Instagram Q&A session. According to the Missile Centre, it will open a shop in October and indicates that many doping tests are planned.
We have the grand opening in October, Tucker said, and Nick from ESPN’s Paula. We’re gonna have a lot of drug strings soon. We’re gonna have some fun, and I’m happy.
The 34-year-old doesn’t even know how many pairs he owned anymore. But in last year’s interview he reviewed it more than a thousand times. He also claims to have worn six pairs of shoes in one game.
The rocket wrestling bait is only one of the many NBA athletes who have invested in the shoe industry. Former NBA players like Bobby Simmons, Derrick Williams and Derek Anderson have their own shoe shops. L.A. Star Lakers Lebron James has co-owned the Miami-based UNKNWN store since 2011.
Tucker’s been living in Houston since 2017. In addition to his love of sneakers, he also decided to open a shop because the city needed more activity.
The shoe culture in Houston is cool, he says. There are a lot of sneakers and a lot of people who love shoes – a lot more than I thought there would be. I just think there should be more activity.
The location of the store has not yet been announced, but an account has been created in Instagram Best Generation.
