If you thought there would never be a new shoe blowout like Manu Ginobili’s Nike disaster last month, you were wrong. Tony Wroten of the Philadelphia 76ers had the ultimate shoe fail when his Air Jordan X fell apart on a drive against the Indiana Pacers in the fourth quarter. His sole ripped off of his left shoe and he was forced to get a new pair of the Jordan XI “Bred” to replace his fallen X’s.
The model he was rocking was the White/Varsity Red-Light Steel Grey colorway that was released previously in 2005. Wroten’s known for his unique shoe game that has seen him in many Jordan’s as well as the Nike Air Veer recently. This will not go on his top shoe moments list.
