Michael Jordan Apologized to Tony Wroten After Sole Blowout

Michael Jordan Apologized to Tony Wroten After Sole Blowout

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.

Is Tony Wroten the front-runner for 2014 Kicks On Court Champ? He just might be. Throughout the season, Wroten has rocked an array of retros and even brought out some choice customs. Over the weekend, the Sixers went back-to-back in Philly, hosting the Pacers and the Grizzlies. Against Indy, Wroten started the game in the White/Red-Steel colorway of the Air Jordan 10 from 2005. Midway through the fourth quarter, the nine-year old retros gave way as the sole came completely detached from the upper. Wroten ran the to the locker room and returned in “Playoff” Air Jordan 11s, switching to the “Carmine” Air Jordan 6s for the next night against Memphis.

Training shoes may not be ideal on the hardwood, but that hasn’t stopped players from wearing the all-purpose shoes on court. Former NBA player Gilbert Arenas once wore the Nike Air Trainer Classic, Amar’e Stoudemire wore Huarache Trainers for a year straight, and just last year, Brandon Jennings wore the Under Armour Cam Highlight, Cam Newtwon’s signature shoe. Even LeBron James sported Trainers on court. Seeing training shoes being worn on court, therefore, shouldn’t come as a surprise any longer.

Two of the Top Kicks On Court Champion nominees this season had stellar games last night in wins for their respective ball clubs. With Michael Carter-Williams back in the rotation, 76ers guard Tony Wroten returned to his bench role but proved to be just a productive as he was in his starting position. The former Washington Husky dropped 19 points while wearing the Air Jordan 2 White/Varsity Red via the Air Jordan 2/21 Countdown Package from 2008. This marks the first time we’ve seen the Air Jordan 2 on court since Quentin Richardson laced up his Air Jordan 2 “Knicks” PE in the first round the of the 2013 NBA Playoffs.

As for Nick Young, he recorded 25 points and four assists off the Lakers’ bench in a Nike Kobe 8 ‘Stadium Grey’ iD. In addition to the Stadium Grey upper, Young’s iDs also feature a Court Purple heel clip and Tour Yellow accents, including the midsole, lining and laces. Young has now worn eight different Kobe 8 iDs this season. View these kicks on court, plus Monta Ellis’ Air Jordan 13s and Paul George’s CP3.VIIs, below.

Is Tony Wroten the early front-runner for Kicks On Court Champion? The season is only eight games in, but Wroten has already managed to lace up “French Blue” 12s, a brand new Mache Custom and “Toro Bravo” 5s. Last night for Philly’s Veterans Day hosting of the Spurs, Wroten laced up two classics that are almost laceless. The Sixers two-guard doubled up on signature sneakers, rocking the shroud sporting OG Air Jordan 18 White/Red, before zipping down the Nike Air Zoom Flight The Glove.

While Wroten impressed, the reigning champ Derrick Williams looked to keep his belt and keep his word of “no retros” by breaking out a lux Kobe. PEs, iDs and retros were all on display last night, so let us know who brought the best heat to the hardwood in this edition of Kicks On Court.

Kicks On Court: Tony Wroten Rocks “French Blue” Air Jordan 12

76ers guard Tony Wroten has been relentless with his kicks on court this season, and as he stated in a recent conversation with him, “this is only the beginning.” In Philadelphia’s first loss of the season last night, Wroten brought out the 2004-released “French Blue” Air Jordan 12.

The 12 is one of the most worn Jordan silhouettes in the NBA, but the French Blue colorway is rarely seen. In the past five years, only Nate Robinson (2010-2011) and Derrick Williams (2012-2013) have rocked this shoe on an NBA court.

For Wroten, this marks the second Air Jordan 12 he has worn this season with the other being a custom designed by Mache. View these kicks, plus Draymond Green’s 90s classic and Andre Iguodala’s Hyperfuse Low PEs, below.

Philadelphia 76ers guard Tony Wroten is evidently gunning for the Kicks On Court crown this season. He has already commanded attention by being one of the first players this season to don a custom on the hardwood in the form of his Mache-designed Air Jordan 12. Yet, his latest wear might raise even more eyebrows.

In last night’s win against Chicago, the second-year guard took to the court in the Nike Air Foamposite Pro Varsity Red/Black. Not at all to be confused with last year’s “Metallic Red” Foamposite One – a shoe often seen on court – this Pro originally released in 2002 and features a black swoosh on the side to match its black bottom. Over the years, only a few Foamposite Pros have graced the court – namely the Gem Green, Pearl and Electric Green – but Tony Wroten’s wear of the Varsity Red pair is a welcomed first.
