Tony Wroten has no sole, experiences shoe malfunction vs. Pacers (VIDEO)

Mar 14, 2014, 11:02 PM EST

Tony Wroten of the Sixers prides himself on having some of the best sneakers in the game, but whatever he was wearing on Friday night against the Pacers failed him miserably.

Wroten had the sole of one of his sneakers come apart early in the fourth quarter, causing him to head to the locker room to get a fresh pair.

We’ve seen more shoe-related mishaps than usual this season, most notably with Manu Ginobili and the explosion of sorts that he experienced.

Wroten often times will go with rare or retro kicks to play in, so maybe the particular pair he chose on this night was more style than it was substance.

    This Sixers team has been sabotaged by management, to the point they are giving them faulty shoes. smh.

    $200 shoes falling apart on the court?

    Hilarious…and all this time people actually, really, TRULY thought they were getting “better quality” shoes for so much money.

    News flash…a pair of Payless shoes will last as long and work as good, as a pair of shoes made by Nike, Reebok, Adidas, whomever…just like a t-shirt from Walmart is the same as the one at Abercrombie, except for the tag on the inside. No matter the price or designer…it’s ALL the same!

    That’s business! ;-)

    Damn and that’s a Jordan 10. What a joke, and he has the nerve to raise prices on these Chinese made pieces of crap.

    Overpriced shoes. Worth 10$ most

    Every time a Nike disintegrates, a underpaid child worker in a far away foreign land gets their sole back.
