Whether there’s an NBA season coming this fall or not, Monta Ellis will have something of his own to wear, wherever he’s playing ball.

And1 has released pics of Monta’s new signature sneaker, the And1 ME8 Empire Mid. The shoe features a combination mesh/synthetic upper, a TPU support cage, polyurethane midsole, a full-length visible air unit and a performance ready modified herringbone traction pattern outsole.

If the lockout keeps you from catching Monta in the shoes, you can wear them yourself this fall when they hit stores.
