When Kevin Garnett sets foot onto the parquet floor of the TD Banknorth Garden to accept the championship ring that he’s been dreaming of his whole life, he’ll be wearing one piece of championship attire already.
The folks at adidas customized a TS Commander 2008 Champions Shoe for KG to wear Tuesday night against the Cavs. This pair features a silhouette of Garnett on the side, gold accents throughout the shoe to pay homage to the Larry O’Brien Championship trophy, and the word “Champ” embroidered on the inside. Along the insole, the dates and scores of each game of the ’08 Finals are inscribed as well.
Aside from the pair on KG’s feet, adidas only made 17 other pairs – in honor of the Celtics 17 championship banners – all of which are autographed and available for auction. Starting on opening night, October 28th at 8 PM, fans can bid at www.celtics.com/shop
for a pair, with the proceeds going to the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation, which benefits local kids through education and community support programs.
