Mark II – Graffiti
Designed by Spencer Dinwiddie in Brooklyn, NY, the Mark II is the latest in high-performance basketball footwear innovation.
The Mark II features a lightweight, enhanced engineered-mesh upper, internal fit-sleeve, an external heel-counter to improve ankle support, and an asymmetrical lacing system to provide a locked-in fit and enable more efficient lateral movement. The Mark II also features a newly introduced TPU toe-cap to provide structural reinforcement against toe drag and improve longevity.
Utilizing a revolutionary Pebax derived foam in the outsole, the Mark II provides enhanced support, dynamic energy return, and reduces impact resistance to accommodate Spencer’s style of play.
The outsole forefoot lateral outrigger provides additional stability when cutting. The outsole forefoot rubber extends up the medial side, assuring the support Spencer’s explosive game requires. The Mark II additionally has an improved outsole tread pattern, providing the improved traction that enables Spencer to take full advantage of his explosive first step off the dribble.
Inspiration for the Color Way (Graffiti):
The word “Graffiti” derives from the Italian word graffio, meaning ‘incised inscriptions’. This color way has a special meaning to Spencer as each inscription pays homage to an important part of his roots. Whether it is a birth date of a loved one, a statistical accomplishment, or a jersey number he wore as a kid, every number serves as a muse for Spencer. Reminding him not only of his past, but providing inspiration for the future.
