Those are sweet! They look old school. I really love the way the stripes wrap around the bottom. The only thing is that I wish they had used the old Adidas logo. Also, I bet they don't sell those in the states. If I bought basketball shoes, I would buy them if they did. I bet they sell a mountain of them in Lithuania and Israel.

Is Saras still just as popular over there? Or did his struggles last year, combined with his decision to sit out the World Games take a little bit of the luster of his star?

Not trying to start anything, just curious.

I tried searching the Addidas site to see if they were avilable anywhere, but no luck. His name is listed as being on their "team," but the model he wears was the same as several others.

im happy for Runi, but those shoes look like a Valet parking attendant's kicks, not an NBA player's.

Wow, how cool are those shoes? They really have style and I might just eventually get a pair of them.
I think they fit the featured player well; style and finesse.

What other Pacers players besides Jermaine and Saras have their own shoe?

Again, are there more Pacers players with their own shoe than the mentioned ones? Maybe Jermaine and Saras can convince the team to wear their shoes? Pacers shoes ftw.

Wow! IF you do find them let me know WHERE you bought them? :) I almost always have difficulty getting the basketball shoes I want to have here.

1.897.238.928.288.292 soccer shoe models and 3 basketball shoe models. That's about the balance between the two here :(.

Regards,

Mourning :cool:

Ron had some shoes after he moved to the Kings. I can't find the picture anymore, but here is a link to a thread about them.

Seriously, Ron had a shoe contract with the German company K1X while he was on the Pacers. Here is a picture of his shoes.

Oh ok! I actually can see Jamaal Tinsley wear the Saras'. If he likes them, he probably can get a discount if he buys multiple pairs through Sarunas connections! :thumbup:

Yeah, if you look in Dime or Slam Magazine you will see at least one ad a ish. for K1X. I dont like any of his apparel of shoes, but he has his own line.

I know JO had his own shoe, Im kind of surprised Tins/S-Jax never got their own...

Those look nice, good thing they don't have a 50 pound concrete block strapped on them like the shoes he wore last year. Now he might be able to get the ball up the court in 7.9 seconds. I'm very excited!!!
