Austin Reaves has become a fan favorite in his short time with the Los Angeles Lakers, showcasing the type of player he was from the jump despite going undrafted. It would earn him a new max contract, play for Team USA in the FIBA World Cup and have his own signature shoes with Chinese sportswear brand Rigorer.

Now, the third-year guard inked an extension with Rigorer, becoming a shareholder of the company. With Valentine’s Day approaching, a special colorway is released to celebrate the holiday.

The new “Valentine’s Day” colorway will be priced at $100 and released exclusively on KICKS CREW next Saturday, Feb. 10. Reaves debuted this new colorway on Feb. 1 against the Boston Celtics, scoring 32 points and a career-high seven 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

Reaves signed with Rigorer in June and his shoes have become shockingly popular, with the first couple of drops selling out instantly. This new “Valentine’s Day” colorway features red and pink hues with white detailing. They are also showcasing Valentine-themed detailing and additional interchangeable patches, which is a first for the AR1 line.

“As I start 2024, I’m looking forward to sharing all the new designs for my signature line with all my fans. This new colorway is more than just a normal Valentine’s release; it represents my passion, dedication, and shared love for the game,” said Reaves when discussing this new release.

Other key features of this shoe include a woven cocoon upper that represents Reaves’ continuous growth, a foam tech midsole encapsulated in an EVA foam and the latest midsole designed by Rigorer. Additionally, a bubble lacing system that is never-before-seen uses encapsulated foam ‘bubbles’ to eliminate lace bites.
