The story behind PJ Tucker’s $250,000 shoes

Dominic Ciambrone, known as the “Shoe Surgeon”, took to The Ringer to discuss some of the figures he has customized and designed shoes for. Among the celebrities and athletes he collaborated with was Miami Heat forward PJ Tucker.

The shoes are a pair of diamond-encrusted Air Jordan Ones worth $250,000. Ciambrone discusses the design process he had with this shoe.

“I was working on a gold diamond concept for a while,” Ciambrone said in the interview. “For me, it wasn’t just about putting glitz and glamor on a shoe. I don’t want to just put gold diamonds on a shoe and be like, “Here’s the shoe. I think it should be done aesthetically and tastefully, but it also has multiple functions. »

Tucker was still a member of the Milwaukee Bucks when the shoes were created. His former teammate Giannis Antetokounmpo spoke in amazement about Tucker’s shoes.

“This guy today, he was wearing a $250,000 pair of shoes,” Antetokounmpo said in the post-game interview. “He had real diamonds, I swear.”
