If you’re a sneakerhead in the 6ix, you better brace yourself, because the Toronto Raptors have officially revealed the release date of their new limited-edition Raptors championship shoes. The lucrative item, which was first unveiled to the public on Tuesday night, had Raptors fans in hysterics as they desperately took to Twitter threads to find further info on the commemorative sneaker.

To commemorate the 2019 NBA Championship, the Toronto Raptors and Adidas have come together to launch a Limited Edition AM4 “World Champs” shoe in honour of this historic moment in sports history.

"To launch the limited-edition shoe, Adidas partnered with Toronto Raptors point guard, Kyle Lowry, to showcase the commemorative shoe design in a video that captures the star player unboxing the shoes,” said Ciara Dalziel, Account Manager for rock-it promotions, in a press release.

Of course, the shoes help to pay tribute to the night that the Raptors won it all. “Each pair details scores from every playoff win with distinct Toronto Raptors marks celebrating the team, city, country, and championship. The shoe also pays tribute to the day the Raptors won it all on June 13 by only producing 613 pairs," Dalziel added.

If you want to get your hands on the shoes, you can "reserve" a pair through the Raptors Mobile App beginning on Sunday, November 17 at 9:00 a.m. EST.

The shoes are the latest limited-edition item to be released in celebration of the Raptors championship.

The Royal Canadian Mint announced back in October that it would be selling a new Toronto Raptors coin to commemorate the team’s 25th season. The coin, which is going for $99.95, is limited to just 8,500.

Twenty thousand replica championship rings were also given out to fans who attended the Raptors season opener. The rings are now selling for a small fortune online.

Unfortunately, despite the updated info on the release date, there is still no price tag on the shoes.

So, it looks like fans will have to wait a little longer before knowing whether or not they will have to put a second mortgage down on their house to afford a pair.
