Gilbert Arenas's Dolce & Gabbana sneaks

By Dan Steinberg

Since Gilbert Arenas's association with Adidas ended, he's been experimenting with a wide variety of footthings. This week brought the experimentation to drunk-in-liberal-arts-college levels, as Arenas took both the practice and the actual game court wearing hi-top Dolce & Gabbana sneakers. Via Kicks on Court:

Arenas' luxury Dolce & Gabbana High Top sneakers feature two straps across the midfoot area and contains a patent leather-like texture makeup. This is the first time we have seen a sneaker of this sort in our Kicks On Court.

And via Sneaker News:

Nike. adidas. Reebok. Dolce & Gabbana? That's right, a pair of D&G luxury hightops were spotted on the court, and it was worn by none other than Gilbert Arenas, the man with the most interesting feet in the NBA. Arenas has kept our eyes glued to Wizards basketball due to his sick on-court sneaker selections and his latest pick for yesterday night's game against the Lakers should stir some interesting debate.

Not sure exactly what the debate would be, but I want in. Near as I can tell from Twitter, the debate goes like this

Pro: "Gilbert Arenas' shoe game > anybody else in the NBA. He wore Dolce and Gabbana shoes last night. Haha."

Con: "im actually really upset at gilbert arenas right now... what possessed him to wear dolce and gabbana sneakers lol."

So it's Haha vs. lol. Who ya got?

(And in other Gilbert news, there was this Tuesday night tweet from Jody Watley:

I remember when I had a small crush on Gilbert Arenas. #Go @Lakers (should be an easy game, though John Wall is one to watch)

John Wall, tho, only has the Great Wall of China on his shoes.)

Playing in fashion sneakers seems dangerous - especially for a guy with bad knees.

What next? Louiv Vuitton/Kanye West kicks?

We've come a long way from the days of chucks, "limousines for the feet."

The D&Gs probably aren't any worse for his knees than those awful shoes that Adidas designed for him. Those things were like cement blocks. I went to see the preseason scrimmage when he first joined the Wiz, and he was playing in Adidas Climacool running shoes.

He will certainly have a shoe deal by years end.
