A couple of weeks ago, John came across a sweet pair of Red Auerbach tribute kicks on Ebay. Knowing Celtics fans would want to see them, he posted them on the Red's Army Facebook page. Within minutes, Chris, a long-time Celtics fan and Reds'Army reader scooped-up the rare Adidas sneakers. Chris has since received the shoes, and sent me some pics and a brief write-up. A few highlights of the Adidas Red Auerbach tribute shoe: Each pair is numbered 1-938. Less than a thousand pairs were made. The shoe features text all-over it with codes relating to significant moments in Red's life. "CSOC" represents Red drafting Chuck Cooper-the first African-American ever drafted in the NBA. 63FIVE64 signifies when Red put the first-ever African-American starting 5 out on the floor in the 1963-64 NBA season. The outsole is a translucent, parquet-pattern to emulate the floor of the Boston Garden. More pics and Chris' story after the jump.. I’ve been a Celtics fan since before my memory actually
PLAYERS: Red Auerbach
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
