Legit rookie or not, you can’t deny that Ben Simmons had a killer season. A key figure in the Sixers’ run to the NBA Playoffs, Big Ben averaged 15.8 points, 8.2 assists, 8.1 rebounds and 1.7 steals on his way to being crowned the Rookie of the Year. And, as a Melbournian, we got to say he was our pick — sorry, Donovan. Heralded for his all-round prowess, Simmons has shown he’s bit of an all-rounder off the courts, too — most notably in the sneaker game and the game (just ask Tinashe and Kendall Jenner). Thankfully, we’re here to discuss the heat on his feet. Here’s our top five Ben Simmons sneakers moments.
Simmons has been spotted in 'Black Cement' Air Jordan 3s enough now for us to safely assume they're his favourite sneaker. You can't fault the classics, after all.
It’s not all about your off-court fits. Simmons honoured the late Zeke Upshaw by writing ‘R.I.P Zeke’ on the side of his regular gamers — the Nike Hyperdunk.
Those Gucci pants may be stealing the show, but they appear to be Simmons' pant of choice whenever he rocks Off-White x Air Jordan 1s. Kudos to him, there's also times where he's been happy to dial down the hype, opting for GR Air Jordan 1 colourways like the 'Reverse Shattered Backboard' and 'Yin Yang'.
