Chicago Bulls vs. Boston Celtics
The Nike Hyperdunk Low has been quite popular on court lately. Here we get a look at Rajon Rondo's PE pair. Also, we get a good shot of the adidas TS Supernatural Creator on Derrick Rose. The shoe seems very stable on that hard cut by DRose.
Another good look at Derrick Rose's PE adidas TS Supernatural Creator's. The appearance of bulk in the upper comes from his adidas Speed Wrap ankle braces.
Luol Deng goes between two defenders in his PE Nike Blue Chip II's. Kendrick Perkins is wearing a pair of adidas Pro Model '08. While Paul Pierce contests the shot wearing a PE Nike Air Max Legacy. So far Paul Pierce's signature shoes have only been available in kids sizes and this model is no different. Gives new meaning to the term "Player Excusive".
Another shot of Paul Pierce's Air Max Legacy PE's and Luol Deng's Nike Blue Chip II PE's. Notice the "DENG9" on the heel of Luol's pair and the "P2" logo on the tongue of Paul Pierce's pair.

Kirk Hinrich is the only remaining signee from Converse's big basketball push back in 2003 when Converse signed Hinrich along with 4 other rookies. In this picture we get a good look at Kirk's PE Converse Weapon Evo. Hinrich has always had his PE's customized in a 5/8th's or low-cut.
