Vince Carter’s Nike Shox Commercial Debuts

Posted by Jeff Chan Categories: Athletes, Gear, NBA,

Vince Carter Nike Shox VC V shoeNike recently unveiled the new Vince Carter Nike Shox VC V basketball shoe commercial.  The commercial features some awesome dunks that Carter has done in his career, like the huge flush he did with Alonzo Mourning contesting the shot, and the famous dunk over Frederic Weis in the 2000 Olympics.  What is unique about this commercial from other basketball themed sneaker commercials is the music of the song Slam by rap group Onyx being played in the background.  The song, which was originally released back in 1994, may   now gain exposure to some of the younger basketball fans.  Other Onyx songs ended up being synonymous with street basketball, such as their 1998 hit, Shut ‘Em Down.  Want to be the envy of the other ballers on the court?  Better get ready to shell out $109.
