When you think of basketball sneakers that were iconic because of a super unique feature they possessed, odds are your mind will go to Latrell Sprewell‘s famous spinner sneakers right away. The kicks — officially named the DaDa Supreme Spinners — literally had a tiny tire with rims that spun in the side of them. They were absurd, but that didn’t make them any less awesome.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a pair nowadays, as they have been off the shelves for sometime. But earlier this week, Sprewell took to Twitter and asked followers if they’d want to see the Supreme Spinners back on the market.
Either the response was overwhelming or this was all part of a plan that Sprewell had cooked up, as the former four-time All-Star announced that the kicks will return sometime next year.
This isn’t the first time Sprewell has floated the idea of re-releasing the sneakers, as he said during an appearance on Kevin Garnett’s Area 21 that he wants these to make a comeback.
The difference, though, is that Sprewell and Garnett were saying the sneakers should return, while Sprewell’s tweet announced that the shoes are making a comeback. Obviously details are scarce, and while the early assumption would be that they’d be released by DaDa, no one knows.
