Malice at the Palace
COLOR: William Navy/Camey White
Even the worst moments can transform into the most cherished memories. As time passes, news ages into history: Sometimes, this takes 19 years. For better or worse, it's always nostalgic to reminisce on the good old days.
The first pair of sample shoes was gifted to the Detroit "cup thrower" on August 21, 2023.
The second pair of sample shoes was gifted to Ron Artest (Metta Sandiford-Artest) on September 13, 2023.
The colorway was inspired by 2004 heritage basketball.
The embroidered numbers on the heels pay tribute to the best defensive players in that era.
The number on the right insole represents the date. The numbers on the left insole represent the time left on the clock and the scores.
A debossed 2004 blue cup is printed on the left shoe tongue as a nostalgic symbol.
DIZYGOTIC released its own editorial 'Fraternal Twin Daily Sun' newspaper which has absolutely nothing to do with this release. It is sold separately for 69 cents.
The shoe will be released on the 19th anniversary of Malice at the Palace.
Project Alpha 'Malice at the Palace' features a premium full-grain pigskin suede and top-grain leather upper, with a perforated suede toe box and number embroideries on the heels.
