Do top high school players get free sneakers??
 
Or do guys like Andrew Wiggins just buy them all themselves?

Top middle school players get free sneakers. Probably tall elementary basketball players.

if you go to sponsored tournaments or your team is sponsored, yes you get free sneakers.

I know this asks about top high school kids, but we got team shoes for free in high school. It was during the early mid-2000's when Shox were the "cool" shoe. We just got a pair of whatever was that year's shoe. Had a whole closet full of them so if/when you wore a shoe or pair out, you got another pair...for free. Some guys would go through 3 or 4 pairs in a season. I just assumed that was the norm for most high schools. I did play on an AAU team a few years and got some free shoes that way.

When I got to college, I used to hangout with some of the players on the basketball team, and they had a shitload of basketball shoes in their closet. I'm talking 10-20 pairs they accumulated over their high school years. Some of the ones I hungout with the most actually gave me a pair for free.

Nike hooks my school up, not just basketball, every sport men's and women's.
