Sneaker Watch: Nate Robinson Shines Again

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

In the first Sneaker Watch of the regular season Nate Robinson seemed to steal the show with a pair of Air Jordan 3 Silver Anniversary editions. Most would have never thought that Mr. Krypto-Nate would one-up himself in the second day of the regular season, however that’s exactly what Nate did. While we’re on the lookout for new releases like the Nike Air Max LeBron VIII and adidas TS Heat Check, Robinson pulled out a pair of Air Jordan 11 Space Jams as the Celtics headed to Cleveland for their second game of the season. Unfortunately for Boston, they were beaten by the Cavaliers, who at least for the time being, have a better winning percentage than LeBron and the Heat.

A couple of other highlights in the footwear included rookie Evan Turner bringing out his Li-Ning sneakers and the Clippers Blake Griffin starting out the season in the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse. Check out the shots below from around the league in the latest edition of Sneaker Watch.

Want to Run in Shaq’s Shoes?

You’ve heard the term, “walk a mile in my shoes,” well Nate Robinson decided to attempt a little less than that wearing Shaquille O’Neal’s latest Li-Ning sneakers. Although most practices are closed to the public, Paul Pierce of the Boston Celtics shared via Twitter (@paulpierce34) some of the pre-season antics that remind us that when it’s all said and done, even the pros remember that it’s a game and meant to be fun.

For more pre-season fun, check out the Sneaker Watch Comedy Edition. But before you do, let us know if you think you could run a set of lines in Shaq’s size 23 sneakers. Keep in mind, Nate Robinson wears a size 11.
