In a game against the San Antonio Spurs in late March, NBA sneakerhead and current Chicago Bull Nate Robinson busted out a pair of the very expensive, very hard-to-find Air Yeezy IIs, Kanye West's signature Nike shoe. Here's the thing: the Air Yeezy is not a basketball shoe. It's more of a "something-to-wear-during-Fashion-Week-in-Milan" type of shoe. Robinson found that out the hard way. After shooting 1-8 in the first quarter, he switched to a pair of Air Jordans at halftime.
