Kicks: Gilbert Arenas Giving Away His Shoes

by Chris O’Leary/@olearychris

The last time Gilbert Arenas was on Twitter, it didn’t go so well.

Now that he’s back with the new handle of @agentzeroshow, Gil’s trying to take a different approach. For starters, he’s looking to give away all of the shoes he wore in games this year to his Twitter followers.

To clarify, Gil says he’ll be asking a question every day between 3 and 6 pm ET and that they’ll mostly be basketball questions. Answers need to be made to Gil’s sneaker account @thesneakerchamp. First correct answer wins the shoes.

If you want some of Gil’s sneakers from this year, follow both Twitter accounts and brush up on your “mostly basketball questions” trivia.

    Shoe sponsors send their players the wrong size shoes? It’s HIS shoe?!

    Wonder if a teammate dropped a deuce in them, why let them go to waste?

    its not a waste, in an earlier tweet he says he wears like 70 new pairs of shoes a season, so might as well give away all those 1-game-worn-out sneakers if he prefers new ones on gameday

    Would you really think Slam would write about it if it was a hoax?
