The men of the NBA have never shied away from making fashion statements. There have been Daisy Duke-style shorts, shants (the baggy hybrid of shorts and pants), Pat Riley Armani suits, Air Jordans, Dennis Rodman tattoos, piercings, and hair dyes, and Allen Iverson sideways caps and corn rows. This season the Urkel-meets-Brooklyn-hipster costume is making headlines, best exemplified by the colorful wire framed glasses sans lenses worn by the Miami Heat’s Dwayne Wade and LeBron James, and the big boy fishy, teddy bear and umbrella-themed polo shirts worn by the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook.
But the latest trend the NBA is hoping to bank on is a new offering for its female fans: high heels.
Yesterday the league announced its license agreement with Orlando-based shoe designer Herstar for a line of heels that includes two designs available for all 30 teams. One is a 6-inch crystal beaded version currently retailing for $275, the other a 4-inch microsuede version retailing for $99.

Wendy Williams has never been one to shy away from the spotlight, but the normally boisterous talk show host has kept her lips sealed about one thing: the line of shoes she is designing.
According to reports, the shoe line, called Adorn, is produced by Ashley Taylor & Co. and ISO New York and will be unveiled later this week at Fashion Footwear Association of New York trade show.
WWD caught up with the radio personality turned talk show host to talk about the shoe line and just how hard it was for her to keep a secret.
“It’s one of the hardest things that I have had to keep from [my audience],” she said. “I haven’t had a secret as hard to keep since I was sworn to secrecy about being on ‘Dancing With the Stars. It’s about [the shoes] fitting, being comfortable and being fabulous,” she said.
