NBA Japan Games 2022 was a treat for the whole world to watch. The Golden State Warriors and Washington Wizards had the pleasure of playing in front of new fans, while Japan got to show off their beautiful culture.
One of the most heartwarming moments was when BTS member Suga showed up at Golden State Warriors practice this week. The K-Pop star met players who were just as (if not) more excited to meet one of the world’s most popular musicians.
The story only gets better. Suga sat courtside for the first game between the Warriors and Wizards at Saitama Super Arena. After the Warriors win, Stephen Curry presented Suga with the shoes he warmed up in before the preseason game. Below is everything fans need to know about the never-before-seen kicks.
Curry Flow 10′ Sour Patch Kids
The Warriors point guard gifted the BTS rapper a pair of Curry Flow 10 shoes in the “Sour Patch Kids” colorway. The Curry Flow 10 is yet to be released but is widely considered one of the most anticipated basketball shoes of the year.

Along with its top-notch performance abilities, fans of all ages love Curry’s signature line because of its exciting colorways. Last year, Curry Brand collaborated with the children’s cartoon sesame street on several exciting designs. Now they’re working with popular candy brand Sour Patch Kids, which is sure to drive up demand for Curry’s tenth signature shoe.
Fans will have to wait a bit longer before they can get the Curry Flow 10. But the good news is that there are still other models available for purchase at retail price. Today, the Curry One FloTro (a retro model with performance upgrades) hits the shelves. We called it one of our top five sneaker releases of the weekend.
The NBA knows how to build excitement around the sport. But Curry and Suga take it to a new level. Stick with FanNationKicks.com for all your sneaker news.
