UNKNWN is taking over downtown Akron on South Main Street (also known as King James Way) to host an all-ages block party and basketball tournament presented by Nike. The event celebrates the city of Akron and the launch of the limited edition UNKNWN x Nike LeBron XX “Message In A Bottle” sneaker collaboration.

The UNKNWN 3v3 Courtyard Classic basketball tournament features a pop-up basketball court on South Main Street in front of the UNKNWN Akron store with basketball teams hosted by UNKNWN ambassadors and Ohio locals.
