If you’ve ever wanted to be Metta World Peace’s buddy, now’s your chance.
Apparently the former NBA star has taken a liking to his new Chinese name “The Panda’s Friend” and is to set to rock these custom kicks with the animal incorporated in them. He’ll wear the innovative sneakers during practice and then throw the detachable Panda to a fan prior to tipoff. The eccentric player elaborated on the idea and process behind it, stating “…before every game, I will be wearing the white or black shoes. The top part of the shoe has a panda on it…it is removable. I will be throwing it to a friend in the crowd. The person who catches it will be the Panda’s Friend of the day.”
So now all you have to do is get yourself to China and you’re set!
