How Zion Williamson's Nike Shoe Might Have Ripped

  • Published on Feb 21, 2019
  • Seconds into Duke’s game against arch-rival the University of North Carolina, star player Zion Williamson went down and his Nike sneaker came apart. The shoe ripped violently, exposing his entire foot and causing the freshman sensation to bow out of the game with a sprained knee in Durham, North Carolina. Williamson is considered one of the best in the nation and is expected to be the No. 1 pick in the forthcoming NBA draft. Williamson was wearing Paul George’s signature Nike PG 2.5 sneaker.

    The shoe didn’t split because of the glue. If you look at the shoe Zion wore the midsole actually ripped/split apart. Sneaker expert my ass.

    I heard $5 million a year from Nike. NAH! If Zion's agent can't get $10 - 15 million per, he should drop him ASAP!
