POLL: So Who Has The Better Shoe, John Wall Or Gilbert Arenas?

Updated: November 10, 2010

So Gilbert Arenas is evidently wearing a pair of custom Under Armour shoes now, as seen above (via Sole Collector – click for more pictures). Well, at least he wore a pair Saturday versus Cleveland (and only in the second half, I’ve been told). For his season debut in New York he wore a pair of Jordans.

The model, Under Armour’s Micro G Supreme, will supposedly be sported by Arenas-only for the next couple of months — and as you can see, the released pictures show the shoes in Wizards colors and with Arenas’ No. 9 on the heel. Also note that Arenas is evidently not getting paid a dime by Under Armour just yet (via CNBC’s Darren Rovell on Twitter).

For Arenas, it doesn’t hurt for him to lend his name/number to a company willing to support him; and for Under Armour, it’s certainly a low-risk investment that could increase their basketball market penetration.

But forget all the strategy, how does Arenas’ shoe look? More specifically, who has the better looking shoe, John Wall or Gilbert Arenas? Or, perhaps, whose shoe are you more likely to buy?

Take a further look at Arenas’ Under Armours at Sole Collector, then consider the many pictures you’ve seen of Wall’s Reeboks (mainly the one below), and then vote in the polls at the bottom of this post.

    if Gil’ shoes had a (Nike) check on the side kids would e all over them. Wall’s shoes are a waste of the $25 mil Reebok paid him. The zig sole is hideous, the triangles are bad, the huge reebok is pretty bad as well.And then it’s just a whole lot of white leather, no stitching, or different “panles” like a lot of the nikes these days. They look like a cheap shoe made in the early 90s. Johns shoes are real garbage. I can’t see any kid in DC wearing them unless their school has a contract.

  • Actually considering those shoes were made in some asian sweatshop for less than two dollars a pair then inflate the prace 1000%, I doubt that I will buy neither.

    Man Ya;ll trippin the Wall Reeboks are nice as well as the UA Gil’s but I would probably buy the UA’s first because I like the style of the Micro G

    Gil’s shoe looks better, but about him getting paid or not, I’m guessing that he was basically just happy to get a custom shoe, being such a crazed shoe junky in the first place.

  • All of the Zigtechs are weird looking, Gilbert has the better looking shoe by far.
