Y-3 has always been known for pushing the envelope when it comes to the design and wearability of their footwear, but we have to admit that their take on the traditional desert boot has definitely caught our eye. Using quality sheep Nappa leather to construct the heel, this boot offers a chic, polished look that is matched ever so elegantly with an insulated neoprene that covers the toe. With a striking blend of style and functionality, the Y-3 desert boot is available in straight black or a much bolder black and white edition.

We’ve seen rare shoes hit the hardwood before. Phoenix Sun PJ Tucker has donned pricey PEs in the past, like his QRich IXs, black OVO Xs or Gerald Wallace XIIIs. We’ve seen Derrick Williams wear the “Oregon” Jordan IV. We’ve even seen Swaggy P break out the Supreme Foamposites just before they released, as well as countless other rarities. And of course, the KOC gawdfather Gilbert Arenas once wore Dolce & Gabbana sneakers at Staples Center because he’s the Sneaker Champ.
After mostly sticking to a mix of LeBron 12s, 13s and Soldier 9s to start the season, Tucker’s fellow teammate and Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe caught everyone by surprise last night, when he broke out the rarest sneaker we’ve spotted so far this season.
Originally made just for Drake and Lil Wayne during their straightforwardly named “Drake vs Lil Wayne” tandem tour, this subtle Air Jordan 3 promo sample worn by Bledsoe features custom insole tour artwork, along with gradient sockliner and laces. There’s even a pair on eBay right now for a steep $ 10K if you’re a fan.
Will we see a more expensive pair of kicks on the court this year? If the first month of the season has taught us anything, we can expect the unexpected ahead.
