The Air Jordan 31 is set to be officially unveiled at a press event in Las Vegas on Wednesday night, but Jimmy Butler and Carmelo Anthony debuted the sneaker Monday during the first day of Team USA practice.

Before players hit the court, they posed for a team photo, which showed both Butler and Anthony wearing a white colorway of the sneaker that featured red-and-blue accents.

As an aside, Nike continued its hilarious tradition of hiding players in a USA Basketball photo who aren’t brand endorsers. Harrison Barnes and Kyle Lowry (who wear adidas), and Klay Thompson (who wears Anta) were placed in the back of the picture, with their sneakers in the shadows.

We got a better look at Butler’s 31s once players took the floor for practice on the campus of UNLV.
