The NBA season tips off with a little nod to Celtics history planned for Kevin Garnett’s feet.
They’re not exactly Chuck Taylors.
Kevin Garnett will wear one of just 17 shall we say…colorful…pairs of special adidas shoes for the Celts’ vs Cavs opening night tip.
KG will be wearing a special customized 2008 champions version of his Team Signature Commander shoe when his Celtics host LeBron and the Cavs. While honoring Garnett and his 2007-08 Celtics championship team, the number of pairs created corresponds with Boston’s total in the NBA Championships department.
All 17 pairs will be signed by Garnett and then auctioned through the team’s website with the launch scheduled for tip-off time. Proceeds from the auction will go to the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation, which benefits local children through education and community support programs.
The shoes feature a green, white and gold design with Garnett’s face printed on them. The insole has the dates and scores of all six of the 2008 Finals games and the NBA champions logo.
The Celtics will also wear a special edition white, gold, and green jersey on opening night that features a championship patch, as well as gold detailing on the front and back.
