NBA Releases High Heels For Women Who Want To Rep Their Favorite Team

There was a point of time when we were wondering if celebs were overdressing to attend Basketball Games.  Now, women who love to stunt courtside even more of a reason to show off their shoe game.
The NBA has recently linked up with an Orlando-based company called Herstar to create two types of pro-basketball footwear that feature team logos. The collection include a$249.99 crystal-covered, 6-inch heel that has a 3-inch platform; and just in case you don’t want all that bling on your feet, there’s a $99.99 microsuede 4-inch heel that has a 1-inch platform. All of the 30 NBA teams will have heels available for purchase, however, since the company has been waiting on the licensing agreement with the NBA their backorders are in the hundreds already.  The shoes that feature Swarovski Crystals are custom made and takes up to 8 weeks to make.
Herstar’s female founder Holly Joffrion revealed that she came up with the idea for the heels after realizing that women love shoes as much as they love their favorite team, so why not put them together to show team spirit:
“We look forward to offering sports fans a high-end line of fashionable heels. We understand how much women love their shoes and recognize that going to an NBA game can be an event beyond the hardwood. We’re able to combine the love of basketball and footwear together, allowing female fans another way to display their passion for the game.”
So far, their top selling heels are the San Antonio Spurs, Los Angeles Lakers and the Oklahoma City Thunder and if you can’t rock the 4- or 6-inch heels, they’ll customize the heels to a shorter height. These about to change the game when it comes to throwing a sports party.
