Social media obliterated Wiggins' Adidas Crazy Explosive's this week, comparing them to hiking boots, snowboarding shoes, wrestling shoes, and even rollerblades.

Josh Gondelman, writer for Last Week Tonight, offered some comic relief onto an already massive pile of hilarity when he tweeted: "The new Andrew Wiggins shoes are like the Curry 2s hiked the Appalachian Trail and came back with a grizzly beard."

Wiggins makes about $2 million annually off of his contract with Adidas.
