Jimmy Butler's unusual signature sneakers are from a brand you've probably never heard of

What shoes does Jimmy Butler wear in 2023 NBA Finals? Exploring the Heat star’s signature sneaker which are slightly more unorthodox than many other NBA star’s.

The Miami Heat have had one of the most improbable NBA Finals runs in recent memory. Erik Spoelstra’s team finished the regular season as the No.7 seed in the Eastern Conference, meaning they had to come through the play-in tournament to reach the playoffs proper.

After beating the Bulls in the play-in, they overcame the odds to beat the Bucks, Knicks and Celtics to set up an NBA Finals with the Denver Nuggets.

Central to the Heat’s success this season is Jimmy Butler, who at times has put the team on his back and carried them over the line. If the Heat are to somehow defeat Denver in the best-of-seven series, Butler will be a shoo-in for Finals MVP.

What shoes does Jimmy Butler wear in 2023 NBA Finals?

The NBA’s most talented players usually get a signature sneaker with one of the top brands such as Jordan, Nike or Adidas.

Butler reportedly took a took a 75% pay cut to secure a deal with the Jordan Brand back in 2015, but left the company in 2020 after failing to get a signature shoe.

So what shoes does Jimmy Butler wear in the 2023 NBA Finals? Jimmy’s signature sneakers are with Chinese brand Li-Ning – his specific signature shoes are the Li-Ning JB 1.

Li-Ning has designed colorways that pay tribute to Butler’s collegiate career, coffee business, and clutch performances.

However, they’re notoriously difficult for fans to get their hands on in the US. Luckily, fans can get the Li-Ning Jimmy Butler 1 on the KICKS CREW website which has over nine different colorways to choose from.

Butler will no doubt be showing off his sneaks in Game 3 of this year’s Finals, which takes place in Miami tonight (7 June).
