It’s always nice to see teammates express their unity by wearing the same shoes or doing things in a certain manner, but when that sense of unification is seen throughout the league, it’s a beautiful thing. On December 1, 2010, the NBA celebrated World AIDS Day, and showed their support by creating uniform warm up jerseys in a red / white colorway, as well as rocking some special edition red colorways in many popular sneaker models.
As you can see from the detailed photos, some players participated in rocking red kicks, as many brands supplied their signature players with predominantly red PEs. Others simply wore their typical basketball kicks on the court.
Some of the more notable designs include Gilbert Arenas’ pair of Air Jordan 2 (II)‘s from the Toro Bravo Pack, as well as Rudy Gay’s Nike Huarache 2010 design. Some of Reebok’s signature players, including Jason Terry, Jameer Nelson, and John Wall were seen rocking all-red Reebok Zig Slash PEs, while Derrick Rose and Dwight Howard wore red versions of the adiZero Rose and Beast Commander, respectively. You can also see pictures of the kicks that stars such as Brandon Jennings, D Wade, and Chris Paul took the court in. Enjoy the pictures ahead.
