PHOENIX SUNS

Suns G Devin Booker featured on Kicks Magazine cover

Sep 8, 2021, 7:35 PM

Devin Booker studies the details.

And in reading the featured story for SLAM’s latest edition of KICKS Magazine, fans can get a sense of how that habit doesn’t stay within the confines of the basketball court.

The Phoenix Suns star wants to know the stories and history of everything he’s into — from his car collection that includes several eras of Chevy Impala, to his shoe collection.

It’s the latter that put Booker on the cover of the magazine, and probably why he was chosen to lace up a pair of Air Jordan 1 “Kentucky” editions that are from 1985.

In the feature story by Max Resetar, Booker touched on his car collection, his shoe preferences — of course it’s about the Kobes — and why he’s so interested in getting to know the history of not only the NBA but the shoes he wears and the cars he drives.

It’s not his first appearance on the cover of a SLAM Magazine.

He last shared the cover a few years back with friends D’Angelo Russell and Karl-Anthony Towns. Prior to that, Booker appeared on the cover as a 21-year-old rising star.
