After his third season ended, Reaves signed a new deal with Rigorer and became a part-owner of the company. Since the Lakers are out of the playoffs, Reaves plans to spend a lot of time golfing this offseason. To celebrate this, a special new shoe colorway will be released.

This new “Hillbilly Bogey” colorway will cost $100 and will be available only on KICKS CREW on Saturday, May 18. The name “Hillbilly Bogey” comes from Reaves’ social media pages where he often shares videos of himself golfing. This is a new project for the 25-year-old player.

Reaves’ shoes have become very popular since he signed with Rigorer in June. The first few releases sold out quickly. This new “Hillbilly Bogey” colorway is a limited edition and has a golf theme. The shoes have green colors on a white base.

The bubble lacing system looks like fake grass, and there is a picture of Reaves golfing inside the tongue of the shoe. Reaves said that the Rigorer design team let him use the AR1 shoes to tell his story and life. He said it means a lot to him to mix his love for golf with his basketball shoes.

The shoe also has a special upper part that shows Reaves’ growth as a player. The middle part of the shoe has a foam technology that makes it comfortable, and the latest design by Rigorer is used in the midsole. The bubble lacing system is new and has foam bubbles to prevent the laces from hurting the foot.

The Rigorer AR1 “Hillbilly Bogey” will be released at 8 a.m. PT on Saturday, May 18, only on KICKSCREW.COM and RIGORER.COM. Fans can also sign up on the KICKS CREW AR1 event page to win one of five free pairs of the shoes.
