In tinseltown to take on the Lakers, Indiana Pacers forward and emerging MVP-candidate Paul George dropped by the Jimmy Kimmel Live show last night to talk about hoops, the time Larry Bird cashed fifteen straight shots during practice with slacks on, and his ongoing search for a nickname.
And yes, there was also this custom fit featuring a grey and black leather-sleeved blazer, cuffed pants and some Pacer-friendly bright yellow Balenciaga Cotes Multi-Materials.
While "multi-material" in the past had meant more subtle pleated leather and suede, this season Balenciaga is flipping things up by adding patent leather throughout and clear panels along the toe and mid panel for a brutally tacky more daring look.
Officially, the shade of yellow is called "Jaune" if you're hoping to track down a pair yourself. They'll run you a cool $595 at retail.
Let us know what you think of Paul's kicks last night, and for his sake, offer up some nickname suggestions in the comments section below.
