Kentucky may have had some trouble finding shoes that would fit incoming freshman Karl-Anthony Towns.

The 6'11" basketball player requires size 20 sneakers:

Kentucky has had some talented players come play in Lexington, but they have apparently never had to order shoes of that size before.

Towns was grateful that the Wildcats were able to secure him some kicks:

Of course, Towns is hardly the first basketball player who has worn giant sneakers. Shaquille O'Neal wore a size 22 during his playing days, and the Lopez twins (Brook and Robin) are believed to have the biggest shoes in the NBA today at size 20.
