Nike Spends $15,000 To Make Michael Ojo Sneakers

Yeah, you heard that right. 15,000 dollars. At 7 foot 1 and almost 300 pounds Florida State center Michael Ojo had a bit of a hard time finding sneakers that would fit his size 22 foot. So Nike sprung into action to create a $15,000 machine that could make the shoe to fit the super athletes foot.

According to SBNation, ACC Network spoke with Ojo in 2014 where he explained he never owned a pair of shoes that fit until he arrived at FSU. Before then he would have to stuff his size 22 foot into a size 17 just so he could have sneakers to play basketball.

At least now Michael Ojo can play comfortably and knows Nike has his back.
