Sneaker Watch

The NBA pre-season continues to roll through quickly and you probably won’t hear many complaints from those anxious for the regular season to get underway. It seems the number of games are picking up the pace and we’re seeing more and more colorways of the latest basketball shoes hit the hardwood.

The latest edition of Sneaker Watch catches the Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, and New Orleans Hornets among other teams, trying to assemble the pieces to a championship winning team before the regular season begins on Tuesday, October 27th. While Kobe, and recently LeBron and Dwyane Wade having been taking it easy nursing injuries, Chris Paul seems to have found his drive to play for the Hornets again.

Check out the photos from the last few days below. Who was wearing the best shoes in this edition of Sneaker Watch?
