Sneaker Watch: A look at what the pros wear.words_Nick Engvall

Gilbert Arenas has been spotted in our Sneaker Watch coverage this year in everything from quality retros to unthinkable Dolce & Gabbanas. With a recent trade that sent Arenas to the Orlando Magic, and then news that he would switch from his typical “Agent Zero” number to the jersey number 1 in honor of Penny Hardaway, his Orlando debut was at the forefront of most sneaker lover’s minds. Unfortunately his 2-for-11 shooting was only good for 10 points in the Orlando’s loss to the Atlanta Hawks.

As for footwear, Arenas didn’t disappoint. He hit the court wearing the Jordan Retro 12 “Nubucks.” I think it’s safe to say that fans of Sneaker Watch are all on the lookout for when Gilbert grabs a pair of matching Nike Air Penny retros from the closet. Not that we haven’t been impressed by his sneaker diversity already this season, but who doesn’t want to see him in a pair of Penny retros?
