Metta World Peace Panda Head Sneakers
Metta World Peace (AKA Ron Artest, AKA 'A Panda's Friend ') is a straight tranquil G, you already know it, and his move to play ball doesn't mean he's going to fall off anyone's radar. To celebrate his latest preferred moniker, Mr. A Panda's Friend has announced he'll be hitting the courts of his new league in some zany sneaks – the unbranded kicks feature plush Jeremy Scott-esque bear heads and arms poking out the top. Though they don't bear the famed big black eye circles of the Chinese creatures (cost cutting?) Artest/Peace/Friend assures us that they are indeed representations of pandas and he will wear them proudly on the hardwood. Who made these though, why can't Friend get a deal with Li-Ning? Are these Li-Ning? So many questions, we'll provide you answers and hopefully a few shots of Friend wearing these as soon as we can. Pics via Courtside Access.
