The “Kick it on the Court” sneaker design contest gave one lucky fan the opportunity to design Myles Turner’s shoes for Monday night’s Pacers vs. Bucks game.
INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner kicks the Milwaukee Bucks game with new shoes designed by an Indianapolis native.
Leah Pinney of Indianapolis was the lucky fan who won Mountain Dew’s “Kick it on the Court” sneaker design competition.
As the big winner, Pinney was able to design shoes for Myles Turner to wear on the court as the Pacers face the Bucks on Monday night.
Pinney and sneaker artist Sierato collaborated in making the shoe. The final product features the blue and gold colors of the Pacers with the Indianapolis skyline.
The shoe’s design also highlights league-leading Turner’s 3.4 blocks with an image on the side of the shoe showing Turner blocking a red circle with a white star in the center.
Pinney also won a pair of signature custom sneakers to match the shoes designed for Turner.
In addition to the contest, Mountain Dew donated 100 pairs of sneakers to the local Indianapolis high school boys and girls basketball teams to help players develop their game on the court.
The Pacers vs. Bucks game at Gainbridge Fieldhouse begins at 7 p.m. ET.
