|Last year Kevin Garnett said in an interview that being on the cover of NBA 2K9 was more special that having signature shoes. While it may be a toss up which is better, one thing is for certain, KG had some pretty decent sneakers during his career – especially with Nike. ?(see feature)
Nike and Garnett are no longer, but that doesn’t mean that the shoes he wore will not return. Coming in October is the Nike Air 3 which is pretty much the Nike Air Garnett III minus any KG branding. This colorup is probably the most recognizable of the model and was worn by Garnett during his days with the Timberwolves. One slight change to this retro from the original is that the shoes have a Max Air heel unit rather than Tuned Air that was in the OG’s.
The shoes will be out in about a month, but you can pre-order now on eBay for just a few dollars over the retail price of $140.
