Video: Blake Griffin Tears a Hole in His Sneaker

Marc Gasol makes kicks explode.

Blake’s Hyperdunks ripped apart in the first quarter of the Clippers’ 92-80 loss last night in Memphis. BG replaced his Elites, but he later sprained the same kneecap which caused him to miss his entire rookie season. Griffin will have an MRI on the knee Thursday in L.A.

  • robb

    $200 shoes with no durability. There’s nothing elite about them.

  • BWill

    not as bad as Matt Bonner’s shoe explosion

    It won’t play, did nike sieze the tapes?

  • Addam

    Nike used to be a quality brand. They now put their swoosh on any plastic piece of garbage and charge $200 +
    for it.

    Wonder what Lebron’s designer has to say about this…and Blake injured himself.

  • Shecky Shabazz

    Love to see what Nike has to say about the quality of material of those $200 shoes.

  • Bola

    Damn, that is some massive shoe size. Well i was paying attention to the lady more than anything else

  • jose

    That won’t effect sales at all

    honestly surprised this doesnt happen more, I hate modern b-ball shoes, ever since light became desirable they basically make slippers with swooshes on em, from an aesthetic standpoint they look horrible.. I miss the Air Max CB34 days, chunkier but solid materials and looked dope too..

    Jason Petrie, you suck!

    not a good advert, knowing blake and his team he’ll use this footage in his next ad-campaign though in some way and make a joke about it. only thing youo can do… besides fire the guy who made them

    So those WERE HD Elites’?
    Yeah, pass (not that i would ever pay 200 bucks for kicks.)
    Switch back to the standard Hyperdunk or even the ugly HD Supreme’s, Blake. ‘Elite’ isn’t what it used to be.

  • http://Somethingsomething. Ugh

    @jose – It won’t. 99% of people who buy those things play ball with a controller.
