The NBA offseason is underway, and even though there may seem like a slowdown in performance basketball shoes, Austin Reaves is set to debut a brand-new release. This new vibrant colorway is perfect for the summer and has a touching story that is represented throughout various design details on the shoe.

The Los Angeles Lakers star has enjoyed remarkable success with his signature AR line, with the one-year anniversary of the AR1 just around the corner. The latest addition, dubbed the 'Family Ties' colorway, infuses Austin's inaugural signature shoe with a striking tribute to his family, particularly his grandmothers.

“The only reason I am in this position today is because of my family and the upbringing they gave me. From watching basketball with my grandmas to training with my brother, they believed in me from the start, and I am proud to have a release dedicated to them,” said Austin Reaves when discussing his new release.

The AR1 'Family Ties' marks the ninth installment in Austin's signature shoe series. This exclusive release features a vibrant design, blending blue and yellow accents against an orange backdrop. Paying homage to his grandmothers' favorite colors, the shoe features their names on the tongue's reverse side alongside illustrations of their beloved pastimes, such as card games and gardening.

The Rigorer AR1 sets a new standard for basketball footwear, emerging as an affordable high-performance powerhouse tailored for all athletes reaching for greater heights. With its Woven Cocoon Upper, the AR1 seamlessly merges breathability with support, delivering comfort during rigorous play and stability during rapid movements. Incorporating Rigorer's ShowTime Tech Foam Midsole, enclosed in EVA foam, the AR1 provides unparalleled comfort and energy return, empowering athletes to soar higher with explosive jumps and seamless transitions.
