Blog Photo - Michael Jordan apologizes for Tony Wroten's sneaker falling apartIn a recent game against the Pacers, Philadelphia 76ers guard Tony Wroten had a pretty ridiculous experience.

The sole of his sneaker, an Air Jordan 10, came off while he was playing.

It's not quite as ridiculous as it sounds, since the shoe is actually a 9-year old model that came out back in 2005. The Air Jordan 10 originally was released in the mid-90s, during Michael Jordan's baseball days, and this was a re-release around a decade later.

So this exact pair had been sitting around (or possible being worn occasionally) before Wroten decided to lace them up in an actual NBA game.

Jordan himself apologized to Wroten for the mishap, but let's be honest: It's 100% Wroten's fault.

Jordan Brand releases new shoes every few weeks, and there's never a reason to wear a 9-year-old pair of sneakers in a professional game.

Some people think this might somehow revolutionize the sneaker game, but let's not get ahead of ourselves. The only thing that needs to be revolutionized is Tony Wroten's wardrobe decisions.

Here's the video, in case you missed it:
