Metta World Peace has panda shoes

Metta World Peace's new shoes are perfect.

Lakers social media and more

Metta World Peace is heading to China and taking on the moniker "The Panda's Friend," so what better way to ring-in his new basketball journey than wearing pandas on his feet? Seriously.

World Peace debuted the shoe he'll be wearing, and yes, they feature detachable pandas. Bask in the glory, courtesy of Courtside Access:



To top it off, here's what Ron-Ron had to say about his shoes:

"...before every game, I will be wearing the white or black shoes. The top part of the shoe has a panda on is removable. I will be throwing it to a friend in the crowd. The person who catches it will be the Panda's Friend of the day."

Now I'm not saying the Lakers should use one of their two open roster spots to bring Metta back to Los Angeles, but I'm not saying they shouldn't either. Who am I kiddin', bring him and his panda-clad footwear to Staples Center. Immediately. We need Panda's Friend of the day.
