Nike recently shelled out $15,000, according to TNT’s Evan Washburn, just to buy the proper machinery in order to produce special edition size 22 7E sneakers for Florida State center Michael Ojo.

The 7’1, 300-pound big man has always had issues finding shoes in his size and has even resorted to jamming his feet into size 17 sneakers just so he could play ball.

Because FSU is a Nike-sponsored school the brand made sure that Ojo doesn’t have to do that anymore.

The size 22 sneaker is about the same size as Shaq’s shoe and bigger than anyone in the NBA right, including Brook and Robin Lopez who have the biggest shoes in the league at a size 20.
