Stephen Jackson and Al Harrington get their own sneakers
 

 
On Tuesday night, Warriors shooting guard Stephen Jackson might have become the first NBA player to ever take the court in alligator shoes.

Seriously, part of the Protégé shoe Jackson was wearing against Lietuvos Rytas in Tuesday’s exhibition game was made from genuine alligator skin.

That's what teammate Al Harrington said, and he should know.

Protégé is his shoe and apparel company.

Harrington has taken a cue and expanded from New York Knicks point guard Stephon Marbury, who created a line of very affordable basketball shoes.

Harrington said that ever since he was a little kid, he wanted to have his own shoe, and Protégé is the culmination of his vision.

Harrington debuted his A3H sneaker on Tuesday.

He didn't wear his own company's shoe last season in games because he was still under contract to another company.

That same shoe -- the A3H -- will cost approximately $40, a more-than-reasonable price.

“This is the one I’m going to wear all year,” Harrington said. “I want kids to be able to relate to and buy the same shoe I’m wearing.”

Harrington said the plan is to begin selling this year's eight styles at All-Star weekend in February in Phoenix.

As for Jackson, he wore Protégé’s last season -- the Stack Jack.

But Tuesday night Jackson had on the shoe he is going to wear this year: the “Jack .1”

Again, kids will be able to get the same shoe as Jackson, athough Jackson's shoe will cost a little more -- maybe a tad higher but no more than $65.

Put it this way, you still won't need a contract extension to afford them.

And Jackson's shoe -- the one in available in stores, anyway -- comes with just the alligator design, not the authentic alligator part.

Jackson had that put in special for his shoes and his shoes alone.

“I broke my feet with Jordans and adidas,” Jackson said during Tuesday’s shoot-around. “So, it doesn’t matter to me what I wear.”
