Gilbert Arenas has been nothing less than intriguing and amazing in this season’s Kicks On Court.

Last night, he and the Magic played their last game before NBA All-Star Weekend. Throughout the first half of the 2010-2011 NBA season, Arenas has rocked a whopping 39 different pairs of sneakers. Our Nice Kicks staff compiled a list of the top 25 sneakers he has worn and also curated a 10-sneaker list of honorable mentions. Which one of Gilbert’s sneaker selections is the most intriguing? Take a look at our Zero to Hero: Gilbert Arenas’ Top 25 Kicks This Season (So Far).
#25 Air Jordan 11 Low IE White/Varsity Maize-Azure
Shoe: Air Jordan 11 Low IE White/Varsity Maize-Azure
Date: February 13, 2011
Opponent: Los Angeles Lakers
Recently, the Orlando Magic handed the Los Angeles Lakers one of their worst losses of the season on national television. Gilbert Arenas somewhat blended in with the yellow throwback jerseys of the Lakers by rocking this Air Jordan 11 Low IE White/Varsity Maize-Azure. It was the second Air Jordan 11 Low IE of the season for him.
#24 “Ice Blue” Air Jordan 10
Shoe: Air Jordan 10 “Ice Blue”
Date: December 4, 2010
Opponent: Portland Trail Blazers
The “Ice Blue” Air Jordan 10 was one of the first re-releases of MJ’s 10th signature sneaker back in the summer of 2005. Sadly, Arenas went ‘ice cold’ in this game against the Trail Blazers. He shot 5-15 from the field, charted five turnovers and had six fouls. It’s okay, Arenas. You won us over with the sneaker selection.
