The inside of the jacket features a ‘City Edition’ Raptors jersey inside, which was designed with Drake’s help.

Also featured on the inside are 235 diamonds that make up the OVO owl and Raptors logo.
"This is truly a 1 of 1 piece .Both the jersey inside, which Drake himself helped design, and this very special piece of cloth. And the diamonds, of course." - Michael Nguyen, the clothier behind the jacket
Brooklyn Nets Point Guard, Spencer Dinwiddie, was ignored by the big sneaker companies early in his pro career. So he created and launched his own brand K8iros. This season he hit the court in his own footwear and each time had a one-of-a-kind custom pair that was painted by custom sneaker artist Kickasso.
We have seen Dinwiddie rock shoes that have honored Rosa Parks, Colin Kaepernick, Stan Lee, Frederick Douglass, Bruce Lee and even former President Barack Obama. Each design is inspired by the ideas of both Kickasso and Dinwiddie.
“The old adage is: look good, feel good, play good. You just feel good when you know you’ve got something nice on, something special. This year, in having my shoe, there was a different anticipation to it, looking to see how my peers would receive it. That was different. But there’s a sense of pride to it. It’s fun.” - Spencer Dinwiddie
