Sneaker Rewind: Finals Edition Adidas Team Commander KG

With the Finals starting tonight, we thought we'd take the way back machine to the year 2008. Adidas made this special make up of the Team Commander for KG to mark his trip to the finals. They released 8 pairs for each of the 7 games in the series. The shoes were available through and Celtics.com, nba.com and through the NBA Store in New York. The price tag was rather heavy, at $1017. The proceeds from the sale went to the NBA CARES charity, a well as some money went to fund local Boston organizations.
The medial side of the shoe, shown above, features the NBA finals trophy. On the other, we get a portrait of KG, which can be viewed after the jump.
