LOOK: Mavs rookie Luka Doncic to wear 'Ghostbusters' custom shoes for Madison Square Garden debut against Knicks

Luka Doncic is putting together one of the more impressive rookie campaigns in recent history. The Mavericks star has set milestone after milestone during his historic first-year run, while also establishing himself as a force to be reckoned with when it comes to his on-court footwear. The 19-year-old made his NBA Sneaker King debut a few weeks ago after a run of custom kicks inspired by KAWS and anime TV series "Dragon Ball Z."

It's hard to imagine taking the level of creativity on those customs and raising it, but Doncic, alongside customizer Martín Redondo, has done just that with the sneakers he plans to lace up during his Madison Square Garden debut on Wednesday against the Knicks (7:30 p.m. ET -- watch on fuboTV with the NBA League Pass extension). The sneakers feature a "Ghostbusters" theme, making them the perfect shoe for Doncic to rock given that the movie was based in New York City.

The custom work is expertly completed on the Nike Hyperdunk X lows, a silhouette that Doncic has gravitated to a ton during the season. The shoes feature many small details that pay homage to the classic film, including a depiction of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man on the heel of the kicks.
