Kicks On Court Diaries: Matt Bonner’s Plea for a New Shoe Deal

17 219


Help. Matt Bonner needs new shoes now.

The “Red Rocket” cares not about style points, the latest trends or switching shoes at halftime. He didn’t add to his collection this offseason in order to contend for the Kicks On Court Champion award. Instead, Bonner has brought the same pair of shoes to the court for the last five years, and even he says it’s time for a change. With Bonner down to his last few pairs of New Balances, we gave him the platform to let anyone listening know he’s open to anything.

  1. Saw it.. not shocked at all. Funny thing is I used to rock a pair of NB during the time at Wolf Park league. I have to agree, they were some of the most comfortable pair of sneakers I’ve ever owned. Remeber kids, shoes don’t make the player.

  2. Won my 100m dash…
    Everyone in spikes, I’m in Etonics. Still waiting on my deal with them. Ask Dylan Borges & William E. Washington III, lol!!!!

  3. I don’t even think athletes give a stuff about comfort, as long as the check clears when it turns up. NB r hella comfy but if I’m LBJ my shoes never made me good so I’m gonna rock the flyest ones.

  4. Seriously NEW BALANCE!!!!!  Do you have any other NBA players WANTING to wear your “basketball” shoes!  Pay the man and give him a truckload or at least a trunkful of shoes!
