Nike’s latest offering, the Book 1 “Mirage V2” is set to debut during the 2023-24 NBA season. The pair is not just a sneaker; it’s a narrative of Booker’s life, encapsulated in a design that’s as functional as it is aesthetically pleasing.

The Ashen Slate colorway of the Book 1 is a blend of Light Carbon, Football Grey, Summit White, and Safety Orange. The upper is crafted from a mix of soft textiles and nubuck overlays, with perforations along the ankle collar for enhanced breathability. The interior is lined with cozy nylon, ensuring comfort for the wearer. The Safety Orange accents, especially the “Book” branding on the tongue, stand out, mirroring the design on the insole.

More than just a shoe, the Book 1 is a tribute to Booker’s personal journey. The inner side of the shoe features a barcode with significant numbers, including his jersey number and the zip codes of Grand Rapids and Phoenix, as well as his family’s initials on the tongue tag. The heel tab, designed to resemble the pages of a book, displays Booker’s birth year, “96”, while the “Chapter One” spine on the heel cleverly ties back to the shoe’s name and the inspiration drawn from book spines.


The Nike Book 1 “Mirage V2” is scheduled for release on February 29th, 2024. It will be available at select Nike Basketball retailers, both in-store and online, including The shoe will be offered in men’s sizes and is priced at $140 USD.
