The great thing about basketball sneakers is that oftentimes it's the on-court moments that can leave a lasting mark and raise the profile of a sneaker.
Sometimes it's a legendary elbow pass to elevate the oft-forgotten Force Authority, or perhaps even a human-leapfrogging dunk to catapult the launch of the Shox BB4. "Last Shot" Air Jordan XIVs aren't exactly "Last Shots" without the last shot.
When it comes to Rasheed Wallace these days, once accurately referred to as "the greatest human being on the planet," his on-court moments can sometimes take on a life of their own, even if he's been wearing the same pair of shoes for well over a decade.
Take, for instance, the fact that he was tossed in legendary fashion this past Sunday morning after just 85 seconds of run. With a home-flaired pair of custom size 13 "Ones" on, his first tech came courteous of what is easily considered an average foul in any other past decade. Shortly after, thanks to a clearly audible yell of his trademark "Ball Don't Lie!!", he was off to the locker room for the afternoon.
Check out a detailed and exclusive look at Roscoe's latest Air Force 1 High, as worn during one of his more awesome ejections. Forgive us for the game shot that happened to be from a different game -- not exactly ample on-court photographs available from his 85 second stint.
This "Home" Nike Air Force 1 High was made just for Rasheed Wallace, and won't be releasing. We'll keep you posted on any future Sheed AF1 release details though.
