Andrew Wiggins’ new adidas shoes are being mocked
A look at the new adidas shoes Andrew Wiggins will wear next season went viral on Thursday, and the sneakers were met with the same derision as Steph Curry’s shoes were last week.
The Minnesota Timberwolves youngster has been with adidas since entering the NBA as the first pick in the draft in 2014. His last shoes were the Crazylight boost that were actually quite cool. Many on the ‘net do not feel the same way about the new ones, which are high-tops.
Wiggins’ shoes for next season are called adidas Crazy Explosive, and they go all the way up the ankle. Take a look at some of the jokes folks were making about them:

At least Steph Curry should feel good that he’s off the hook when it comes to sneaker jokes. But I still do think all the jokes about his shoes were funnier.
