Retro Ads: Kareem’s Sky Hook Shoes by Adidas (only size 16 feet!)
The most surprising thing about this 80’s ad from Adidas is it says Kareem only wears a size 16 shoe. Considering LeBron James wears a size 16 and Shaq wears a size 21 you would think the almost 7’2″ player would have bigger feet (do not insert anatomy joke here).
Check out his other measurements!
