NBA Feet: Weekend Recap – 11/08 – 11/10
This past weekend brought a couple of surprises both in the box score (Jeff Green and his buzzer beater over the now 4-3 defending champs) and on the feet of a couple of superstars as the NBA season continues to roll on all cylinders. While the Nike LeBron 11 has been missing in action on the feet of LeBron James (thanks to some discomfort in the toe box) his upcoming “Terracotta Warrior” Nike LeBron 11 appeared in Sacramento on the feet of DeMarcus Cousins. Meanwhile the Toronto Raptors broke out those camouflage alternates and DeMar DeRozen figured he’d take advantage of the popular print by lacing up a pair of the Nike Air Foamposite Pro “Army Camo” to match while Monta Ellis continues his Air Jordan retro onslaught with a pair of the Air Jordan XX3. Continue reading to get the full rundown on our latest NBA Feet and let us know which pair we spotted over the weekend was your favorite in the comments.
At least sum1 is wearin da bron 11 lol (Demarcus Cousins)... And I see those Raptors still on they kicks game heavy... Those HPs Anthony Davis has on are dope
No... He says there's a lot of discomfort in da toe box when he drives to da lane. Hence him wearin da 10s instead... And dats because da toe box on da 11 is more squared then rounded like his other sig shoes. So his crazy lookin toes doesn't have room
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite That is very interesting...So the shoe was not really tested for game use on a high level before it went on sale. I would imagine if it had his name on the shoe it would get his seal of approval before hand. I would think the testing phase would have found this before he commited to wearing a shoe for a whole season. I remember MJ pulling out the XIVs early during the 98 finals to test em out.
They have a whole ad campaign with him wearing the 11s and even he thinks they are not comfortable. How good is that endorsement then? I will probably get that Miami Akron pair anyways. Be sure to get a half size bigger for my toes LOL. If I get my normal size joints be hurting like Lebron.
I feel u homie... And I personally like da 11s. I think they are super comfortable but then again I haven't hooped in them. I lace them loosely like I do wit all Lebron kicks. And I go a half size up anyway since his shoes fit snug to begin wit... So I think sales of da shoe are gonna suffer if he's not gonna wear them. And I've heard a couple dudes return their 11 due to toe box discomfort... So I guess it depends on ur foot even tho I think they are very comfy
