Gil's Green Shoes, Explained
Since we had some confusion about exactly which shoes Gilbert wore for a half against the Knicks and then gave to Jared Jeffries, I gave a call to Adidas to find out.
So here's the story: he was wearing the "GilZero Low Lucky with a symbolic roulette wheel motif," a shoe that is part of the adidas Vegas Urban Pack. The other limited edition shoes in this series include "The T-MAC 6 Millionaire designed by LA cult designer, Rolland Berry; The C-Billups Money with a patriotic red, white and blue dollar bill print; and the opulent T-MAC 6 Golden Foil." All four shoes retail for $200, are limited to 1,500 pairs and are theoretically only available at "urban independent retailers" in Vegas.
Overall, there are 21 shoes in the adidas Vegas collection. Other Gilbert-focused offerings include the All-Star On-Court GilZero (design coordinated with all-star game day apparel, $100, widely available) and the Vegas Off-Court, which comes with "bold, Vegas-inspired details and symbols" and black leather uppers "fused with metallic silver and gold hardware details" ($200, 1,500 pairs, retailing at urban specialty stores in Vegas).
