February 15, 2022

Indigenous artist Allan McKenzie, who has built a strong following on Instagram and social media with vibrant murals, designs and paintings, is collaborating with 2K Australia to auction off a one-of-a-kind pair of shoes for charity, inspired by NBA 2K22.

The shoes are a custom pair of adidas Harden Stepback 2.0 basketball shoes, and not only feature McKenzie’s artwork across their entire design, but also integrate cute little ‘2K22’ brands as well. The pair will be auctioned on eBay at 12pm AEDT on 21 February 2022, with the auction running until 12pm AEDT 2 March 2022. The auction will be hosted by Indigenous charity Red Dust, with all proceeds going to them as well. Red Dust is a charity that for the past 25 years, has been involved with delivering innovative health promotion programs and community development projects in partnership with remote communities.
