Tony Parker’s Next Signature Shoe, the Peak TP6, Has Been Unveiled

Veteran point guard Tony Parker, who will play his first of his 18 NBA seasons for a team other than the Spurs, has just unveiled his latest signature shoe overseas: the Peak TP6.

The new shoe, his sixth with Chinese brand Peak, comes with several big changes. Since the debut of his Peak signature line, Parker’s shoe has always been a low or midcut affair. Now, it’s much taller at both the heel and “tongue” — and we can probably expect to see a Charlotte Hornets colorway.

Chiefly, the Peak TP6 features a fully leather toe that is complimented by a one-piece woven textile upper, a contemporary mix of materials that shows just how quickly a company like Peak can iterate. According to the brand, the shoe will also use new P-Boom injection technology to fully cover the heel and midsole for support and stability.

Underfoot, the shoe’s usual Gradient Dual cushioning has been changed up. Now, it is presented in four modules at the forefoot (each covered by translucent rubber to see the foam) while the heel will probably receive a different density foam. The traction pattern looks thick and should offer multi-directional coverage.

Tony Parker’s Peak TP6 will retail for 599¥ (approx. $90 USD) and release on July 28. Fans can look for it at overseas retailers like Famuji Sneaker as it is unlikely that it will come to the States in time for release day.

  1. This looks really good. It’ll be interesting to see how the new cushion setup feels.

  2. Aestethic wise, the upper looks like if the crazylight 2.5 and the Harden Vol. 1 had a baby. Traction looks promising and that color blocking is very nice to me. Let’s wait to see those in the always fresh Hornets colors.

  3. Hopefully the traction performs as well as past models! Also the silhouette is probably the best to date in the TP line. Peak are really doing good things along with Li-Ning & Anta!

  4. Colorways with breaks at the toe are getting a little overused. This, the WoW 7, Soldier 12, Jimmer’s sig with 361 was a blatant imitation of the Harden V1.

    For these, I do like the articulated pattern at the forefoot. Heard the TP9 V’s were good, but in hand I couldn’t bother. In a pool of shoes that are good, I didn’t have to have them.

  5. These look dope. I’ve yet to try a Peak shoe. I was tempted on the DH3 but D Howard is a douche. LOL. Tony looks about as excited as Rudy Gay when he saw his new Puma’s.

    1. Most of Tony Parker and Peak advertisement photos has Parker looking mad and angry which is the total opposite of a Frenchman lol. But I also wanted to cop the DHL3 as they looked good and original but the CW were awful.. and they only released like 4 CW and all ugly.

  6. The shoe kinda reminds me of a cross between the Crazylight 2.5 (upper) and the CP3 VII (outsole), which is not a bad thing. It’s a clean looking shoe for sure, in that simple black/white colorway. Never tried a Peak shoe before, but the Tony Parker line has always peaked (see what I did there) my interest…

  7. The harden1 was not the first shoe to use a toe cap… can we stop saying every shoe with one copied it or looks the same
