Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon has so much explosiveness on the court that not even his sneakers can handle his game.

He may have finally jumped out of his shoes.

During the third quarter of Tuesday night's game against the Philadelphia 76ers, the high-flying Gordon had to deal with a bit of a shoe malfunction.

Perhaps this dunk contributed to the problem:

Gordon shook off his footwear issue and had himself a nice game. The 2016 NBA Slam Dunk Contest sensation posted 11 points and 11 rebounds in a 124-115 victory over the 76ers.
