Back in January 2011, I featured my friend Drew on "Fan Friday" over at RedsArmy.com. Drew is a die hard Celtics fan and avid kicks collector. His collection includes game-worn shoes from Ray Allen, Jermaine O'Neal and many more. This week, I got a tweet that literally stopped me in my tracks. As I was walking down Mass. Ave in the pouring rain, a picture of Paul Pierce's Nike Air Legacy appeared on my smartphone. Sneakerheads that collect Celtics themed kicks know that all of Paul's shoes only come in kid's sizes. So the only way you're going to get one in adult is by getting one of Paul's personal player editions.
Paul wore this edition of his signature shoe during the 2009-10 NBA season. Drew has not been able to confirm this yet, but this pair may in fact be the same one Paul wore during the NBA Finals vs L.A. that year. And as I found out after some (painful) research online, Paul may have worn this exact pair in Game 7. Drew is obviously excited about his latest score and was more than happy to send me a few pics:
