It’s gotta be the shoes. No . . . literally. It has to be. At least for the newest Panini Instant launch that debuted on the official online store of Panini America yesterday. The new Rookie Kicks Jumbo set features oversized pieces of sneakers worn by the NBA’s hottest rookies, including Zion Williamson, Ja Morant, RJ Barrett, Tyler Herro and more. The super-thick cards incorporate seemingly every part of the sneaker — from the insole to the outsole to the heel to the tongue to the side logos.
Each card in the set is a 1/1 although there are multiple versions for each player. A few new players will be unveiled each day for the next several days so stay tuned to the Panini Instant site each day at 2 p.m. CST. Enjoy the brief preview gallery that follows and stay tuned for additional information.
