Just after signing with the Chicago Bulls this past summer, Nate Robinson already knew what he was most excited about, telling us right away, "My sneaker game is going to be crazy!"
He hasn't let us down all season long, switching in and out of countless Air Jordans throughout the year and paying tribute to his favorite player growing up while wearing #2 for the Bulls.
Just before the season started, Nate walked us through his newly built sneaker closet at his Seattle, Washington home to show off the Jordan stash that he's quickly building up in just a few month's time. You'll see his favorite models ahead, including his cherished "Doernbecher" IVs from his buddy Isaiah, and the Air Yeezys that he vowed to be the first to wear in a game.
Check out the video below, and stay tuned for Part 2 of Nate's Sneaker Closet, where he walks us through his Foamposite and LeBron collection stored in a separate walk-in space. In Part 3 of our video series, Nate highlights all of the shoes that he's worn throughout the season.
