All the athletes at the Winter Games are getting hooked up with Ralph Lauren and other designer clothing, but US curler Tyler George is refusing to wear official curling shoes because he wants to wear his 8-year-old Skechers instead!
Apparently George bought them in Michigan, where he is from, and believes that they are the best shoes for him to get a medal. However the shoes look horrible and are barely being held together by tape! If he wins gold he should definitely retire those bad boys and induct them into the shoe hall of fame!
Most elite curlers wear sport specific shoes. This Olympian insists on wearing his 8-year-old Sketchers. https://t.co/GItsaiMgW7— The New York Times (@nytimes) February 14, 2018
