As we prepare for the NBA Finals to tip-off tonight (our preview is coming a little later), it’s with great pleasure I present to you the most expensive basketball shoe, maybe ever. As seen on The Basketball Jones and the Complex.com blog, when the game gets under way, Kevin Garnett will be wearing a special edition adidas sneaker that commemorates the Celtics run to the Finals.

These special adidas will tagged with each game the Celtics play in. For instance, tonight’s shoes will have Game 1 on them while the pair for Sunday’s game will have Game 2 on them. However, that’s not the end of all this special edition goodness surrounding KG’s adidas. Not only will they celebrate the Celtics working to get their 17th title, they’ll also be some of the most expensive athletic shoes, maybe ever.

The sneakers are so limited that adidas will only produce eight pairs per game to hit retail, and each model will be tagged with the respective game (#s 1-7) on the lateral side of the shoe. Want a pair? You’ll only have to shell out $1017—with all the profits benefiting a Boston charity in collaboration with the NBA Cares program.

After reading that, I’m left wondering who will be the first sucker Celtics fan with lots of disposable money to buy a pair. You just know someone will. Will it be Tom Brady or Gisele?
