The Nike BOOK 1: A First Look at Devin Booker’s First Signature Shoe

It was only a matter of time before D-Book got his own.


[Update 24 Oct 2023] According to the man himself during an episode of Complex’s Sneaker Shopping series, Devin Booker confirmed that only 500 pairs of his first-ever Nike Book 1 “Chapter One” will be released in December. The extremely limited number will make it a highly sought-after pair by basketball fans and sneakerheads alike, so stay tuned for more information on how to get them.

[Update 15 Sep 2023] Nike has officially unveiled the Nike Book 1 “Chapter One”. The new images showcase the pair in its full glory, offering a look at its multi-material construction and textures. Additionally, the campaign images, presented as a product sketch reveals the components, inspiration and motivation behind the design and its motifs.

[Update 8 Sep 2023] Alongside a set of new images, the Nike Book 1 “Chapter One” made a notable appearance on Drake’s feet during his recent performance. Check out the shots via the gallery above as we await further updates on the pair’s release.


The Phoenix Suns’ Devin Booker has been a Nike athlete for more than a few years now, faithfully wearing the Kobe line on-court. Soon enough however, he’ll be wearing his own signature shoes, ascertained by the news that first surfaced in December last year. In March, reports of the anticipated “Nike D Book 1” surfaced once more, this time predicting its release for the 2023–24 NBA season.

Sneaker News today gave an exclusive reveal of the titular pair now dubbed the “Nike BOOK 1”.

The shoe’s proof-of-concept samples, seen in two predominantly black hues, offer a glimpse of its final shape. The design, a slightly extended low-top, rests just above the ankle. The samples are seen with test materials, one in shaggy suede, the other offering a more varied material combination. The tongue reads “BOOK,” and the “96” inscription at the heel alluding to Booker’s birth year. Its lateral Swooshes sparkle in gold.

Alongside them, a model currently named the “Craftsman”, presumably a lifestyle retrofitting, features textured finishes that extends from the elevated mudguard to the midsole. A tonal application of orange complements the Swoosh at the convergence of the mudguard and synthetic upper.

Devin Booker’s debut signature hasn’t been officially announced by Nike, but there’s reason to expect their arrival to be sometime within the upcoming NBA season, the end of the year, or early the next.

Meanwhile, consider a look too at the Nike ISPA Mindbody “Total Orange”.
