Thumbs down I present to you the ugliest shoes ever made.

Someone in the NBA forums posted Wade's shoes:



Holy cow! Talk about ugly! I wouldn't be caught dead wearing such ugly shoes.

Those actually look decent. I've seen worse.

Those shoes are above average. Not sure that I'd buy them for myself, but they're nice looking.

Don't think they're ugly, but I bet you if you took off the converse and added a nike swoosh those sales would skyrocket.

Well Wade wanted to make them affordable to kids...So instead of the 125 dollar price tag that Bron's and Carmelo's have, it's only 90 dollars. I think they look good, but I wouldn't pay more than 40 for them.

If Wade keeps going and they don't move him over to Nike, he could singlehandedly ressurect the Converse brand. How long is he signed for? I can't remember.

They're pretty cool, but they would be better if they just came in solid black or solid white.

I know Converse signed Wade and Bosh. I think they signed one or two more people from the same draft class, anyone remember who?
