Nikola Jokić will debut his first signature performance basketball shoe with 361° in the near future. Until then, Jokić will wear the Big3 Future High on-court, the latest performance basketball shoe from 361°. The Big3 Future High will remain a player exclusive to Nikola Jokić, but a low-cut iteration will be made available for public release.


Engineered for excellence, the Big3 Future Low incorporates the latest cutting-edge performance technology from 361°, and was released at 7 a.m. EST / 4 a.m. PT on December 28th. Key features include:
