PE Watch: Rui Hachimura
Rui wears special Air Jordan XXXIV PEs for the 2019-2020 season.
When Rui Hachimura signed to Jordan Brand, he shared his excitement for joining the family alongside some of his favorite athletes. Soon after, he became a face of the Air Jordan XXXIV and starred in the UNITE film series. For the 2019-2020 season, he’s repping the new game shoe in exclusive player edition (PE) styles.
Of the AJXXXIV, Rui says: “The design of the Air Jordan XXXIV is great. It’s what I always imagined basketball shoes would look like in the future. The shoe is simple and not too crazy, and the materials fit well on my feet. I play using both my size and speed, so it’s good that these feel very light, like I can barely feel them. They’re made so that a bigger player like me can still move fast. The interior of the shoe is as good as the exterior.”
Here is a running list of Rui’s PEs, inspired by his heritage, family and team colors, that will be updated throughout the season.
