We’re going to tell you this up front: yes, this is a real shoe. And, yes, Metta World Peace AKA Ron Artest is behind it. Or should we say, Panda Friend? If you think back to August, MWP said he was changing his name to commemorate his contract with the Sichuan Blue Whales in China. Now, with the release of these bizarre ursine shoes, it all finally makes sense.

According to an Instagram post and several tweets from the baller himself, we have learned that the style is tentatively dubbed the Metta’s World China sneaker and they’ll come in at least two coloursways, all-black and all-white. The bear head attached to the tongue does not come off, nor do the hands (Peace calls them “ears”). In an interview with Courtside Access, he also mentions that he’ll actually be wearing them during upcoming games.

If these shoes are somehow your style, you’ll be able to buy a pair tomorrow on Metta’s personal website. As for us, we just thought they were worth a laugh.
