P.J. Tucker found a pair of Carmelo Anthony’s sneakers that are so rare it stunned the Trail Blazers star himself.

On Tuesday, Tucker, the NBA’s undisputed sneakerhead, showed up to Charlotte as his Milwaukee Bucks faced the Hornets wearing a super rare edition of Anthony’s “PRFC” Air Jordan 5 PE’s. The sneakers, once priced at $9,000 on Flight Club, are extremely rare as they were made exclusively for his NASL soccer team in Puerto Rico.

Finding the shoes posed a difficult challenge for Tucker, who asked Anthony about the shoes to add to his elite collection. Anthony told Tucker he only had one pair, but that didn’t stop the sneaker king from living up to his name.

A longtime Jordan brand member, Anthony found out Tucker copped another pair, and, in disbelief, tweeted: “Bro how …” with a crying emoji on Twitter.

Melo is all of us right now. All sneakerheads aspire to have the amount of juice in the sneaker game someday that Tucker has.
