Sneakers have become a big part of every NBA player’s wardrobe. They are the only piece of the uniform that allows a player to express himself whether it be through sayings, colors, or the design itself. John Wall, Derrick Favors, Wesley Johnson and Greivis Vasquez all showed off the latest custom footwear at the 2010 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot on August 17th.
Wall, who signed with Reebok in June, was not wearing his ZigTech Slash; instead going with the Reebok ATR Make It Rain.
Wesley Johnson and Derrick Favors were both sporting adidas TS Heat Check. The back of Johnson’s shoe read “WES-4” while Favors’ had “D-FAV” on the back of his.
Greivis Vasquez, who wore Under Armour in college while playing for the Maryland Terrapins, continued with that trend and was wearing the Under Armour Prototype BB, which included the phrase “Venezuela’s Finest” as well as the Venezuelan National Flag.
