Remember those special edition Gil Zeros that Agent Zero was rockin' back in April? He broke them out at the Clippers-Wiz game in LA. Back then I wrote:
It appears as though Arenas has a closer for his shoes. For the first three quarters, he was rocking the multi-colored Gil Zeros that he wore against Seattle. But in the fourth quarter he put on a pair of the light grey Gil Zeros to close out the game. Do they play "Enter Sandman" at Wizard home games when the light grey Gil Zeros come on?
Anyway, those multi-colored ones are the UNDRCRWN Gil Zeros. It's a special edition collaboration between the Adidas Remix Collection and Undrcrwn involving all five of the Adidas signature kicks. According to their website:
Adidas Remix Collection has partnered with basketball lifestyle brand UNDRCRWN on a limited series of 90’s retrospective-inspired shoes derived from the ‘06/’07 campaign coined adidas x UNDRCRWN It Takes 5IVE. All five sport silhouettes, initially created for on-court play by NBA stars Tracy McGrady, Kevin Garnett, Tim Duncan, Chauncey Billups and Gilbert Arenas, have received serious redesigns giving new flavor to court style.
You can pick up a pair of these limited edition Zeros at Undrcrwn's website for $150. Good luck at copping 'em... they're limited to 750 pairs worldwide (the 12's sold out in seconds... damn! Brett got a pair, so expect a unboxing post along with me buying that hoops card off him.). Anyway, here's a few pics of the shoes:
