NBA Video: Manu Ginobili’s Shoe Explodes Against Pistons

A shoe is one of the most important parts of a players’ on-court attire. It serves as a marketing tool, a symbol of the player’s expression, and protects the player’s feet and ankles.

Last night against the Detroit Pistons, Manu Ginobili’s shoe failed him.

While defending Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey, Ginobili planted on his left foot when his shoe split at the seams. Ginobili continued to play with his shoe wrapped around his ankle until a timeout allowed him to go change it.

It was truly a bizarre moment for a number of reasons. The obvious one being it’s something that hasn’t been seen before.

There have been times when shoes slip off, and sometimes opposing players have even thrown those shoes across the court.

There was also the weird case of J.R. Smith untying opposing players’ shoes at the free throw line. But for a shoe to just malfunction and explode, it doesn’t seem real.
