The fine folks of the UK Equipment staff just posted this picture on Twitter of what they say is the largest pair of Nike basketball shoes they’ve ever ordered for UK basketball summer practice.

It’s gotta be Karl Towns, right? According to the all-knowing Wikipedia, he wears a size 20 shoe, and @UKEquipment posted this picture of the shoe box, which shows they are, in fact, size 20.

    This is nothing. We had an 8th grade (14 year old) football player last year who wore size 19 football cleats. Don’t knock it til you have to call every shoe store in the state of Kentucky to find a pair.

      Or, ya know, use eastbay.

      East bay is about the only place to find them but not much selection for that size.

      Go to Eastbay right now and find me a size 19 pair of football cleats. Not to mention, we needed them the next day so calling around was our best option. No need to be a smart @$$.

      Dewayne – you got that right. Hard to find large sizes like that about anywhere.

    Tyler – check Karl’s twitter. He had some amusing comments worthy of an update.

      You are right on. During a summer bb camp the mgrs let my son get a pair out of Shagari’s locker since he left several pairs behind when he transfered out.

    Didn’t Rob Locke have the largest shoe size? For some reason, 23 sticks in my head.
