Sneaker Watch: A look at what the pros wear on the court.

words_Nick Engvall

Wednesday the world seemed to take on the color red for the World AIDS Day initiative in bringing awareness about the deadly disease. To participate many of the league’s top stars pulled some unique basketball shoes out of the closet. Of course, as has been the highlight of much of our Sneaker Watch coverage this season, Gilbert Arenas brought out the Jordan Retro 5 from the Raging Bull pack against the Raptors. Not to be outdone, John Wall was spotted in an exclusive red version of the Reebok Zig Slash. Players like D.J. Augustin and Gerald Wallace also reached for retros, however they came to the court with the recent Jordan 2 release from the Candy Pack.
