"Sample" on the inside tongue of the shoe
Another cool feature that has adorned these shoes is kg's tribute to two of his good friends and mentors: Malik Sealy (former Timberwolves teammate) and Kirby Puckett (former Minnesota twins superstar centerfielder). malik’s tribute is located under the strap and says “2 Malik,” while Kirby's call out, KP 34 is located on the inside of the shoe on the outside heel section.
Check out the photos and you will see it has the original factory tags on both shoes from Adidas and even has a company, Sheehan's Sales, which provided the interior lining of the shoes for KG personally as this lining is not a retail lining offered to the public! If you notice on the photos, the shoe size has been crossed out on both shoes for some reason, most likely to not reveal his actual size as some players in the NBA do this to hide how big they truly are! Kevin Garnett is not an easy autograph to obtain yet alone on something personally owned by him and even better, a pair of shoes!!
