As you may or may not know, sneaker companies frequently hit their NBA endorsers with special edition sneakers for the post season. A number of the 76ers have been rockin’ new shoes during the playoffs and so far we like what we have seen. With a little help from our friends at Li-Ning, we’re going to take a look at the kicks Evan Turner (11 & 8.6 a night in this series) has been wearing vs. the hated Boston Celtics.
After the jump, a sneak peak at the shoes Turner will be wearing tonight in what hopefully will be a big 76ers W ….
The black model below is the shoe is has been wearing for away games. Hopefully he’ll get to rock them at least one more time this post season — in Boston for Game 7.
Evan was heavily involved in the design process and here are some quotes from him about his shoe and had this to say about the Li-Ning kicks, “Here’s what it means to wear a product not everyone else is wearing; you’re different. You didn’t follow the trend. You bring something different to the game and to the world.
Tuner continued, “I’m a refined guy in personality and fashion, and this shoe is clean. It’s got the suede and patent leather and the higher cut while everyone right now is going for a low cut. It’s a classy shoe.”
