PRE-ORDER: FLYTE 🦋 🏀MBB-02
Coming Summer 2021.
Introducing "Take Flight," a new basketball from round21 inspired by the story of the Large Blue butterfly.
Like each of us, the Large Blue butterfly is rare and special. And, its story is one of resilience, perseverance, and hope. In 1979, this butterfly species was determined extinct in the world, but conservationist work has successfully reintroduced the Large Blue butterfly back into existence. We see parallels to the story of the Large Blue butterfly and our own existence as humanity in two key ways. (1) Each of us should be admired both for our individual beauty and our meaningful, complex lives, and (2) with the support and effort of all of us, we can thrive as a species AND as individuals. All it takes is care and love.
Just as the Large Blue butterfly is distinguished by the unmistakable row of black spots on its upper forewing, this basketball depicts a color and pattern to match. In addition, the undersides of the Large Blue are pale brown with black spots. We worked to reflect this beauty in our ball, but it's up to you to match the butterfly's enigmatic and remarkable resilience with your game.
