This afternoon at the SEC Tipoff 17, @SEC tweeted a picture of Kentucky Hoops’ guard Makayla Epps’ shoes. Usually, I’m not a huge fan of school specific shoes, as I usually feel like they try too hard to incorporate the school all over the shoe. However, it looks like these are simple. U on the left, K on the right.

Epps is going to be the best and most important player on Matthew Mitchell’s short-handed squad this season, so I say let her wear whatever she wants on the court. The pride of Lebanon, Ky averaged 17.1 points 4.8 rebounds, and 4.5 assists in her junior season and will look to improve upon those stats in her final year wearing the blue and white. Basketball season is upon us folks. Get pumped.

    If you’ll recall, Tyler Ulis donned a similar custom of the Kyrie 2’s last year. I believe the only difference is that his didn’t have the checker board on the swoosh. It’s a nice upgrade to the shoe considering that colorway was created to pay homage to Kyrie’s time at Duke. Always good when we can improve upon something like that, haha.
