Rajon Rondo Talks About Wearing Pink Foamposites & Reveals His Favorite Sneaker Of All-Time
Unless you’re a huge Boston Celtics, you probably didn’t pay very close attention to Rajon Rondo‘s sneakers prior to the 2012-13 NBA season. Although he has worn a bunch of different sneakers in the past, he also shared a backcourt with Ray Allen, who is one of the biggest sneakerheads in the entire NBA. So, Allen always got a ton of attention from sneaker blogs in the past. But, now that he has moved on to play with the Miami Heat, it’s Rondo’s turn to shine. And, he’s already taken full advantage of the spotlight by rocking a pair of pink Nike Foamposite One sneakers on the opening night of the season.
Recently, Dime caught up with the Celtics point guard to talk about a number of different things, including sneakers. In the interview, he talked about wearing the pink Foams in order to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October and also pointed out that he’ll be wearing the all-black Foams soon since he just picked up a pair from his connect at Nike. Towards the end of the interview, Rondo reveals his favorite sneaker of all-time, too, and while you might not be too surprised by his selection (he’s worn them a lot in the past), it’s certainly an unconventional sneaker choice. It’s not the sneaker that most guys would probably choose.
Check out the interview that Dime did with Rondo below. And, make sure you keep your eyes peeled for more sneaker heat coming from Rondo later on this season. Judging by this video, it’s clear that he’s a big sneaker fan and that he’ll have some more interesting sneakers to show off to the world soon. And, now that Ray Allen isn’t around anymore, it sounds like he’s ready to assume the sneakerhead role for the Celtics. So, look for him to continue to carry the torch.
