Usually, when you think of Dolce & Gabanna, you don't think about basketball—unless you're envisioning front row customers at a Lakers game at the Staples Center. Gilbert Arenas would laugh at you for that. Back in 2010, the former NBA All-Star slipped on a pair of $395 Dolce & Gabanna sneakers (during a game in L.A., of course) and proceeded to score 23 points. A few shark jokes and a couple of guns in the locker room later, Arenas now has plenty of time to select inappropriate shoes to wear off the court.
