An Incoming Kentucky Player Has Size 20 Shoes

Kentucky Wildcats recruit Karl-Anthony Towns has the largest feet the team athletic staff has ever seen.

The UK equipment managers took to Twitter to show off the size 20 Nikes that arrived on campus for Towns, saying they were the largest the school has ever had to order from the sneaker company.

"Largest" is quite an accomplishment on a lineup as big as the 2014-'15 Wildcats, as The Courier Journal reports.

The New Jersey native Towns is just one piece of a team guaranteed to be the biggest in college basketball next season. Along with Towns, who stands at 7-feet, the Wildcats have seven players in all 6-8 or taller and three 7-footers — he, Dakari Johnson and Willie Cauley-Stein.

You know what they say about a man with big feet.... You have to custom order shoes for him and it's kind of a hassle.
