Last weekend, Tony Wroten had the sole from his White/Varsity-Red Steel Air Jordan 10s blowout in a game against the Pacers. The sole from the 2005 retro release came completely detached from the upper during the fourth quarter of the game (see the video below), with Wroten exiting the game to switch into a pair of “Playoff” Air Jordan 11s. The situation was definitely a bummer for the 2014 Kicks On Court Champ contender, but it does have a silver lining. Delaware Online reported the following quote on the occurrence:
“It was more embarrassing than anything,” Wroten said Wednesday. “But things happen. I got an apology from Jordan. Yeah. … He called my agent.”
Perhaps Money will send Tony some new kicks? We hope so. Tune into Kicks On Court to see what Wroten rocks next.
