NBA Hall of Famer Reggie Miller has picked up mountain biking since retiring from playing ball, even lining up for the amateur races at the first US Cup XCT races in California.
Now, the former Pacers star has custom kicks to match his kit. Fizik hooked the 6’7 racer up with a special pair of shoes to match his Boombaby mountain biking kit.
The size 13.5 shoes are in the blue, white and yellow of the Pacers, where Miller played his entire 18-year career.

Miller hasn’t just been casually showing up at races. He has called on some of America’s best cross country athletes to help him train and develop skills. Miller has shown that proper coaching can benefit everyone, even one of the greatest all time basketball players. In training, he’s had help from U.S. XC Marathon national champ Payson McElveen. Miller even had reigning world champion Kate Courtney help him pick out his lines at the Bonelli Park US Cup weekend.
