John Starks is selling $200 sneakers
 

 



Former New York Knicks guard John Starks is ready to launch a new basketball shoe – one he’s claiming is designed to prevent one of the biggest injury bugs suffered by basketball players, the sprained ankle.

Called Ektio – Greek for “to protect and defend,” the sneaker is designed as a bootie within a shoe for form fitting, both laces and straps, along with bumpers on the soles to guard against ankle rolling. The Ektio was designed by Barry Katz, a New York doctor and former college basketball player who’s playing career was hampered by ankle injuries. The shoe goes out on November 1, exclusively on d!cks Sporting Goods website. Talks with other stores are ongoing.

The shoe is a gamble – expensively priced and not s3xy. At $199 retail, it costs more than LeBron James’ and Kobe Bryant’s signature shoes. Starks and Katz are betting that functional will be able to compete with fashionable. The company’s Facebook site is filled with links that document ankle problems among NBA players. One big sports shoe chain, Foot Locker, has already taken a pass.

Starks isn’t laying out any cash in the venture, nor is he being paid – he gets an equity stake in exchange for being pitchman, according to his publicist. Taking stock instead of money for from a startup can pay off: New York Mets star David Wright reportedly took home an eight-figure haul for his endorsement of Vitamin Water after the startup was bought by Coca-Cola.

obviously those that said no way in hell dont play ball. Think about it, u play high school or college ball, and these shoes prevent ankle sprains, Why not wear them???? one bad ankle injury can ruin a career, might as well prevent it if u can. Them 200$ Jordans aint gonna do it
