The sports brand said it will start the festivities ahead of time by selling limited Jeremy Lin edition sneakers at its flagship store on Zhongxiao East Road in Taipei beginning 11 a.m. Saturday.
The shoes will come with assorted merchandise sure to delight fans, not the least of which is two tickets to a meet-and-greet event with the hugely popular Taiwanese American player.
Lin's packed schedule includes publicity events on July 17 and 18. That will be followed by a youth basketball camp on July 19 and 20 with guest coach Steve Novak of the Toronto Raptors.
